Are you ready to bust out your sewing machine and make magic? Let’s sew some dance shorts!

Here's what you'll need

CUTTING OUT THE DANCE SHORTS:

1. Cut 2 from the Jazz Shorts sewing pattern (oops – I changed the name). Make sure the two pieces are mirror images of each other.

SEWING THE DANCE SHORTS:

1. Fold each leg piece in half right sides together, matching the short inseam. Stitch. Press or finger-press the seam open.
