I bought this fabric at Joann's and would like to make my 7 year old niece a skirt.

Does anybody have a pattern recommendation? This will be the first skirt I have made. I figured why not start by making a child size garment, this way it won't be such a waste of fabric if it doesn't turn out.

Thanks!
Pam

Kids are simple with their straight figures.
Try the Free rock-collecting skirt at luckypennymake.com.
It goes to a 4, but just use the chart to get waist size and more length
for a larger size.
Later you can try one with a ruffled bottom.
For your fabric, it would be cute with contrast pockets, add a little trim on them or at the hem.

Thanks gramma b! That looks like a good beginner skirt and those pockets are cute! Great idea to make them a contrasting color.
