Pajama Makeover

While out shopping the other day, I found some women's pj's on clearance. My girls love to wear my t-shirts to bed, so I thought I would pick up some to refashion for the girls. I had to get the smallest size and even those were huge. They were swimming in them. LOL

I apologize in advance for the before photo. This was taken on my phone. Oh and oops look at the sewing mess on the table behind them. eeekkk!!

See how big they are? Falling off the shoulders and not very kid cute! I wish they were all matching but you get what you get on the clearance rack. And I can't complain for only $5 each.

So I took these to the sewing machine and added a really cute cupcake applique to the chest of each one. I sewed a straight stitch around the cupcake for extra security. I added some ribbon to the side of the sleep shirts so I could tie a bow in the back. I also added a scrap fabric to the top of the shirt. This helped cover more of the upper chest area and also added more color. ;-) I used one of my old shirts on the pink jammies and some fabric from my collection of scraps for the blue one.

Ribbon Tie Backs...
I added two different colored ribbons to the little girls so they knew which one was theirs. Smart mom eh?

And the final look...
I love how these look now. So much cuter! Don't you think? Not bad for clearance rack pj's.

The girls {LOVE} them. As soon as they put them on they danced around. And tonight they couldn't wait to wear them again! Yeah!


  1. I love these! Especially the cupcakes are to die for :) I'm sure they cant wait to get to bed now hihi

  2. I love this idea! I have a 5 year old girl who loves nightgowns, but is so tall that many of them have gotten too short. And they aren't easy to find anymore, at least not at a price I'm willing to pay! ;) I may have to dig through some thrift stores to see what we can come up with! :)

  3. What a cute and unique idea girl. You are so smart!!! Love your models...they are just adorable.
