Although many poodle skirt patterns on the market today would likely work fine, in this example we used Simplicity Costume pattern #5403. Below you'll find several patterns to choose from, as well as a couple ready made poodle skirts, just in case you run out of time. An experienced sewer could sew this skirt in a couple of hours, but a beginner should allow more time.
