King Sheet Upcycle - Continued

Do you remember my new pj pants?

I still have plenty more sheet left where that came from, so there's more to be made!!

A knot top for my littlest girl was the next thing that struck my fancy to try. I had no pattern, just a similarly styled shirt that we already owned. This is the same "technique" I used for my pants. Lay the item of clothing you want to clone down on the fabric and cut around it.

It didn't work quite as swimmingly this go round. I didn't bother to measure my baby's girth and she was squeezed like a sausage. I mean, there was some major baby cleavage going on, which wasn't quite the look I intended.
So I pulled out part of another pattern I had made that had a keyhole neck. I cut the back of the shirt right up the middle and restitched it wih an opening at the top so I could add the button and elastic loop.

That gave her just enough wiggle room to be comfy, and added a style element I hadn't originally thought up.
That's the way of The Pretty Pickle!

Linking up!

  1. Dude Sara, I think that we are a match made in bloggy heaven. Thanks for your sweet comments about my lucy pillow. I just had to come and see what Preety Pickle Style was. I am dying over your etsy infatuations. I totally made my daughter one of the bib dresses with 2 buttons. That is so funny! I guess I do have a little pickle in me!

    love your guts

  2. So cute! I just bought some vintage floral sheets and I have so many things planned for them- I never thought of pajama pants, though. I think I'll have to add it to my list.
    PS- your little model is so cute! My baby has lost her rolls and I miss them.

  3. awesome...but with the baby cleavage - you know who you were trying to be like. hehe.
