Awhile back I received a vintage bodypillow size pillow case from my Mother in Law. The pillow case was open on both ends and had handmade embroideries on either end. I believe her MIL made this pillow case for her for her Wedding. So, this would make it over 40 years (!) old.
I figured summer jammies for the girls would be the perfect repurposing project for this pillow case. The sets I made consist of a peasant style top and simple shorts. For the tops I used this tutorial from IndieTutes and the shorts (I also used part of an old bed sheet here as well) are made from this easy Butterick pattern again.
So here they are:...and in action...
I think I will use the directions from IndieTutes again to make some summer tops or dresses for the girls. They work up very quickly. I still have a vintage sheet with big summer flowers on it. I think that would be the perfect fabric. But, first I have to finish a couple of custom orders for my shop.
