I started with a short-sleeved shirt and a long-sleeved onesie. I cut them off about 1.5 inches below the bottom of the sleeves. I had some pink knit from the remnant bin at Walmart from which I cut off 20 inch lengths and sewed them into tubes. I sewed a casing onto the bottom of each for the elastic (you could also use ties but I didn’t want them getting lost in the wash). Putting right sides together I pinned pleats into the knit and pinned the shirts and knit together. Then I just zig-zag stitched around. Last I ran the elastic through the casing and stitched it shut. As a final embellishment I added a little ribbon rose to the center front of each nightgown. They were extremely easy and probably cost no more than $.50 each.
A few days ago I picked up a few onesies and things from the thrift store for $.25 each. I had found a tutorial online for making nightgowns out of them and thought it would be fun to try. I really like nightgowns because it makes diaper changing (especially at night) much easier. Plus they’re cute. :c)
As soon as I find some more shirts and/or onesies I’ll make some more!
