It’s time to think about summer! I love to use vintage sheet fabric, and here’s a great way! Using two sheets and two 5-packs of boys tank-top undershirts I came out with ten super-cute nighties for under $20. Here’s how I made them:
cut the undershirts to the length you’d like (they are ordinarily quite long!)
make a pattern (similar to mine if you want them super-twirly) and cut out the skirt pieces
stitch the skirt pieces together and then to the tank top (stretch the tank top as you go and it’ll gather the skirt itself)
cut out a cute picture from the sheet and quickly machine-applique it onto the tank top (if you want it cutesy!)
. . .and wear!
These are so easy, inexpensive, and enjoyable to wear!
SO the measurement at the top is about 1/4 of your waist measurement, plus a little bit for comfort. The A measurement equals the B measurement to keep the length uniform. Cut it out on the fold, and make two per nightie.
🙂 Give it a try!
