Upcycled Nightgown Tutorial
I have been wanting to try this forever…
So FINALLY I made my way to the Goodwill for two white shirts. In the entire store they had TWO without really bad stains and they both happened to have a shadow stripe thing going on. I was geeked.
Time to get out my machine.
Some white thread.
Some pink ribbon from my gift wrap stash.
Let’s do this.
I pressed the nightgowns and laid out the girls’ Christmas dresses I had made on top and traced them to get the general idea. And from there I had to wing it. If you are following along to make your own… extend me some much needed grace. It all just out of my brain on onto the screen. I am all about flying by the seat of my pants…
Or in this case, the hem of my nightgown…
So hold on.
I made these nightgowns on the first full day I had away from my kids in years. Yes, I am some sort of a martyr. But it was such pleasure to make them for my girls knowing how delighted they would be. They aren’t perfect by any means, but they are romantic and sweet and I know the girls feel pretty wearing them. Not to mention they cost all of four dollars.
And now let me show off my beauties… and I don’t mean the nightgowns…
Thanks for indulging me and I hope you enjoyed this Upcycled Nightgown Tutorial.
Happy Pinning. (And sewing).
If you make one for your little girl, you are going to say, “Oh! She’s Sew Chic!”
