Here is how to make a great little cheer skirt for girls. It's a wonderful way to show team spirit or would make a great costume. I've also made a couple for her to wear as little summer skirts.
So, to do this you will need
Fabric in the dominant color—twill or poplin are recommended; lightweight cotton and cotton blends work, though do not hang as well.
Fabric in the flash color—use the same type of fabric as the dominant color
Half a yard of each color fabric is plenty for most younger girls
Zipper (in the example, a 7” zipper is used and cut down to size)
Medium-weight, iron-on interfacing
Desired skirt length
Length from the waist to mid-buttock
