When your daughter needs a few quick outfits, it is great to turn to a solid skirt pattern and cheap t-shirts from Target. My "go to" skirt pattern for my daughter is Children's Corner's Sassy Skirt. I have lost track of how many I have made. I made two skirts with the variation of adding another tier to the skirt and making it look like a peasant skirt. Above, the skirt is trimmed with self-ruffled dot print and rick-rack.
Above fabric is by Timeless Treasures and the embroidery is from Planet Applique.

Another variation of this skirt is to make a skirt. I make the skirt as it is written for the full skirt and then add Children's Corner's Sara Skort shorts underneath to make Sassy Skirt a skort.

Another quick skirt is a free hand rectangle of ruffle fabric sewn to an elastic band. This took longer to thread my serger than to sew. I sewed up the side seam and then gathered the top. I tacked down the skirt to the elastic on my regular sewing machine and then coverstitched it with my coverstitch machine. It looks professional and my daughter is nuts about it.
The bird cage appliqué is from Planet Applique.
Have a great weekend!
