Big Nighty to Little Nighty

I have been a bit preoccupied with other projects so I haven't really done anything to post about so I quickly whipped up this nighty for Gracie this morning.

As per my previous upcycle I had also picked up a few nighty's at the markets that I thought I would upcycle to pj's for my girls.

Grace picked this pink one:

First I found one of Grace's old nighty's that she loves and turned both nighty's inside out and folded them in half:

Then using a marker I traced around the night and cut it out.  Now to just pin both sides and sew:

Pin and sew the hem at the bottom of the nighty:

For the sleeves, I lay both nighty's on top of one another and traced around the sleeve and cut:

Sew across bottom of the sleeves, pin and sew to nighty:

Ta Da!!!! and here is my cheekie little model once again!!!

I have another nighty that is alot thinner and I'm thinking of making them into a night shirt and matching shorts.

Stay tuned and Happy Sewing!!!!!!
