PJ Pants Refashion

Don't you love it when you find the perfect pj's????

Don't you hate it when you wreck them????

I had these great pj pants:


There were pretty, they were soft, they were comfy, they were warm.  They were everything you could ever want in a pj pant.


And then I spilled something on them :(   and they were relegated to the back of my closet never to be worn again.  Boo hoo.

I took a good look at them the other day though and realized that they only had an inside leg seam.  You know what that means....fabric!!!


I cut them up the inner seam and layed them out flat.

And then I cut them into the shape of a tank top and sewed them back together...


All it needed next was some lace collar pieces and some pretty lingerie elastic for the straps, and voila!



Back
I haven't decided yet if this will just be a pj top now or if it's something I can actually wear in public.  It does look kind of cute with a warm little cardi over top.


The moral of the story, always look at everything as a big piece of fabric before you let it go.  You never know, it may get a second chance at life!

Are you a nightie or a pj pant gal?  I want to know!  Leave a comment below~

Saw you are Someday Crafts linky today. This is great - you did a fantastic job. I love to reuse fabric from things that don't fit or have stains, like yours. I think it looks great.

Are you kidding??! That is adorable. I would never think of doing anything but whining that the pants were ruined. :-)

I love this! What a great idea! For me, it depends on the day and how I'm feeling so I guess I'm BOTH a pajama pants and a nightie type of girl ;-)

How cool! I love to sew and repurpose things into new things. This is a great idea as I could use some lingerie and don't want to pay the high prices! ;)
Thanks for posting!
Blessings,
Gloria
