    Simple pattern for little girls skirt

    I saw on here a site that had a couple ideas for little girls skirts with elastic waist. Unable to find the site or tutorial, can someone help?

    http://www.danamadeit.com/tutorials has some really cute stuff. I made her simple skirt a few times and was able to do the last one in less than 20 minutes! Her Warhol Dress (which is made out of an old t-shirt) turned out really well and was quick too.

    I don't post identifiable pictures of my daughter publicly online, but here's a picture of the Warhol dress from the back.

    When my girls were younger, I frequently found cute t-shirts and coordinating fabric and then attached a gathered skirt to the t-shirt. I was happier with those dresses than what was bveing sold in the stores. If you have a ruffler, it should be easier than doing the gathering by hand.

    And Chris_quilts...you could make it as long as needed; where the panties wouldn't show!!
    I loved the longer sweatshirts that came out and added the skirt to them to make the
    cutiest dresses. My DD had a couple of different colored ones. Some I pleated instead
    of gathering.

    Thanks but DDs no longer interested in mom making them clothes or dresses - just quilts! Both are high school grads and well beyonde the cute dress stage, unfortunately.

    I have one that I've been wanting to use... but I can't remember the site. If I find it, I'll list the site here.
    I'm so close to the first finish line, yet I feel so far away.
