I took a sequined 4 gore skirt with a curved waist panel and turned it into a baby doll nightgown. I removed the sequins, I used all of the skirt material and added some pink cotton print for the lining and straps of the bodice. I used a top pattern from Calerie Can Arsdale Shrader’s book, SWEET NOTHINGS as my inspiration. . I cinched the bodice in the center and put elastic on the bodice and skirt seam line. I used my Rowenta iron to iron out the bodice facing so I could make piping out of the facing. When you are working with recycled fabric, an iron is a requirement, not an optional. I turned a seldom wore skirt into a dreamy nightgown that makes me feel pretty.
2 yds Cotton polyester fabric, cotton print – 1/2 yd for lining, thread, 1/4" elastic
