Although this particular tutorial was built for the darling cutie to the left, this same idea can be applied to girls of all ages. Maybe even mommies?

10 x 44 coordinating material (longer or wider to adjust for a different size)
optional : ric rac, embellishments, lace, flowers
1. Cut your coordinating fabric 10 x 44 and hem the bottom edge.
2. To create the pleats I folded down and ironed 2 1/2 inches and then
flipped the fabric and ironed down 1 inch. I did this repeatedly until I
reached the end. You could also run two lines of stitching along the top
and gather to create a ruffled skirt rather than a pleated one.
3. With right sides together sew along the side of the skirt piece.
4. Turn the t-shirt and skirt piece inside out. Pin the edge of the skirt
to the edge of the t-shirt. To create the appearance of a shirt over the
skirt you pin the right side of the skirt to the wrong side of the shirt.
