A nightmare to get dressed in the morning

My six year old daughter has MAJOR clothing sensitivity's. So bad that this morning she literally tried on every pair of underwear and pants that we own and NOTHING was comfortable. So now she's wrapped in a blanket with just a T-shirt and no underwear going to her dad's house and missing school today because she literally refused to get dressed this morning. I tried to force her but she kicked, screamed,and pulled all her clothing off.
So now she's not going to school today and I researched it and found out that she definitely has SPD (Sensory Processing Disorder). So now I'm working on getting her into a occupational therapist but we need to get a referral and this could take at least a month. So any and all suggestions for how we can deal with this would be great.
