I'm getting ready for a "Breakfast In Bed" party and wanted some matching pajamas for the girls to wear without breaking the bank. How does $3.00 for a pajama dress sound??? And it was "sew" easy!
I would rate my sewing skills to be on about a 5th grade level. I can sew a straight(ish) line but could never follow a pattern or do much more. But if you can cut and sew a straight line I promise you can do this!
I bought adult medium t-shirts at Michaels for only $3.00 each. Now I completely eyeballed my measurements. I think if you wanted to get technical you could find a t-shirt the same size you need and make sure the arm holes will fit. But my eyeballing turned out just right!
Before, During, and After:
Fold the t-shirt in half and make sure everything matches up.
Draw a line from the opening of the sleeve to the bottom of the shirt. I figured approximately how wide the sleeve should be then had the line come in slightly in the chest area then went wider as it reached the bottom.
Cut out wear you drew the line. I cut both sides at the same time.
Flip the shirt inside out and pin each side down. The first one I made I didn't pin it I just held it together as I sewed. I strongly recommend pinning. The jersey material rolls easily and it was a pain to keep straight.
Flip it back to the other side and add any embellishment or wording. I used my Cameo Silhouette and heat press vinyl to write Sweet Dreams.
