A New Skirt I made and some easy, quick, free sewing patterns

First, I really wanted to find some patterns to make that were easy and quick! The first one I found was this skirt from Oliver + S. I couldn't use the selvedge for the interior seams since I was making it for a 22 month old and that would have been huge so i used the selvedge for the bottom hem instead and cut the piece based on where I wanted it to fall on Ava. You only need 1/4 yard or even less for a toddler skirt.

My first try - which is sometimes a wash - turned out pretty good. It is a little big, but cute because Ava doesn't have any long skirts - her shirt is pretty big too actually. I could totally rig up one of these for myself - oh, oh or a tiny matching one for Lilly!

Here are a few other patterns I think look very, very easy -
