So I got this nightshirt when I first went to college...but hardly ever wore it. Its nice but the length was uncomfortable and it was so big. Maybe I am weird but I don't like feeling fat...even when I'm going to bed. I decided to make this shirt something I could wear out and about....the colors beautiful and the fun floral pattern is just perfect for me...so here we go......
Get a shirt that fits well and can be used as a general guide....plan how long you want it.
I cut my shirt round on the bottom to add a little more fun.
After you cut the bottom cut along the shirt your using as a pattern adding 1/4 inch for seam allowance.
I wanted to have little slits on the sides. So I didn't sew all the way down....you can do it either way
Here is how I sewed the little slits on the side....after you sewed down on the side till about 2 inches on the bottom you fold the seam toward their side, pin and sew...
I wanted my sleeves a little shorter....unlike what you see in the picture do NOT cut the sleeve round but cut it STRAIGHT. (I figured that out after sewing on the sleeve 4 times)
Turn the sleeve RIGHT side out....put in the arm hole (the shirt should still be wrong side out). Make sure the bottom seam of the sleeve is inline with the seam of the side of the shirt. Pin....sew.
The Finished Product
