Finally I have gotten around to this sewing project. I have collected some vintage sheets to make some pajama's for my daughter then I will use the scraps to make her a matching quilt... There are so many Autumn projects I have on my list. Several include re-painting her antique iron bed, and dresser as well as her hope chest... Then adding in some refurbished decor to her room. She had decided she wanted her room to be shabby chic & feminine with robins egg blues, yellows, greens, white and some pink. So the sheets were bought thrifting for such projects. We found these sheets for about 2 bucks each... Yahoo!
I will be making a couple nightgowns and one more pair of p.j. pants from the sheets. She loves her first pair. She put them on late this afternoon and has been wearing them since... She is ready for bed and the sun isn't even down as I write this post. As Home schoolers we can wear Jammie's all day if we want... which she actually loves to do much of. The girl has more Jammie's then regular clothes I tell you! She loves comfort. Well, I guess you can say she is like her mama.. Since well, I do the same thing, LOL!
The pajama pants turned out utterly darling and feminine...
The flowers are sweet ... and I added a little bit of lace trim..
To make her feel even more dainty!
Tonight she will be tucked in her vintage sheets wearing her vintage sheet p.j bottoms while I read her a bed time story. We read almost every night. It has become a ritual since my children were babes. it is a wonderful way to bond, and settle down for a long nights slumber. Bedtime is a cozy time... Even cozier when you have special pajama's don't you think?
