River Romper Pattern Hacks: Bubble Shorts + Tie on Skirt

As I am preparing my girls' summer + back to school wardrobe I am getting as much as I can from my patterns! TWT patterns are well known for their versatility and number of options and I would like to show you two ways in which you can create even more looks using the River Romper pattern! First up are these darling bubble shorts I created using the shorts pattern piece of the River Romper. I folded the top edge down, leaving a small opening.
