Once upon a time I made myself a dress. It was peach with white polka dots. As I wasn't wearing this dress anymore so I decided to make it into something else. I decided to cut it down into a skirt but I didn't measure very well and the skirt was way too big for me. I still wanted to convert it into something so I decided to make it into pajamas for my daughter, Kaitlin.
I used Butterick pattern 6659. I didn't quite have enough of the peach with polka dots to make the pajamas out of so I decided to use a piece of peach cotton to supplement but even with that I had to do some creative cutting. After I got it cut out I used what was left of the fabric to make some bias tape (that wasn't on the bias) to use for the edges. I also changed the shorts a bit. Instead of doing an elastic casing in them I just gathered them on the side. Of course, I went over to Stephanie's and she helped me sew them up!
I'm so happy with the way these turned out looking. In fact, I think I'm going to go cut this pattern out of a few more fabrics I have laying around!
