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!
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~
