I've had some requests for something similar but just not sure which fabric to choose as I want something slightly silky but that won't get picked to bits.  TIA

Well they look like they are made from like a cotton/spandex type material. My thinking is that the material used in dance leotards would be great to make them. Just my thinking thou.

I was gonna say lycra/spandex stuff, but after looking at them again, the shorts seem to be more of a cotton. The leggings look like they are a thinner material-some kinda nylon type stuff.

Have you tried contacting them and just asking what material their shorts are? Seems like bike shorts kinda cotton

ETA: I found it! It was on a different store's site...
80% Nylon 20% Spandex

Thank you for working so hard to find that!  I didn't even think to look at the store sites.   Smiley

It seems to be a great idea, but I don't think if nylon/spandex fabric is so good for the feminine parts... I would rather use cotton/lycra thing, it breathes more.

a good stretch knit might work, too.
Those are cute! I always just used thin cotton shorts underneath but they are a bit bulky.

I've been thinking of making some of these for my kiddo.  I found a few fabrics I thought would work at JoAnn's in the dancewear knits. . .soft, thick leotard-type material; either cotton/spandex or cotton/lycra, now I can't remember.  Huh
