(Is it spring yet???)
My mother-in-law gave me a set of pillowcases last fall, and I set them aside to do something with them. I decided to make my daughter a pillowcase nightie.
I thought I'd just use a t-shirt that I had on hand but lo and behold I didn't have any white or solid t-shirts. So I headed to the thrift store and found a cute t-shirt. It was half off so I ended up paying $.52 for it.
$.52 + free is not bad for a nightie!
I used this tutorial as my idea. I used a knit stitch to join the two, hopefully that will help it to hold together well.
My daughter was in her room for quiet time while I was sewing, so I just guessed on where to cut the shirt and the pillowcase. She tried it on and kept it on, so I would say she likes it! It ended up being knee-length, which is nice for a summer nightie.
Cost: $.52 (t-shirt), $0 (pillowcase)
Running Cost: $10.81
