Summer Pajamas

I got these great vintage sheets from Kris a few weeks ago. I thought these were perfect for some pajamas for Anna.

I used a regular pants pattern with an elastic waist. This was a fitted sheet, and I thought it would be cute to use the elastic as the hem for the bottom of the pants.

The top is not a pattern. I just cut a bunch of rectangles, put some elastic in the back and made a tie to go around her neck.

I love vintage sheets. They are so soft and comfortable, perfect for summer nights.

I agree, sheets make wonderful jammies. My favorite pair use to be a sheet. I think it cost a quarter...

That's Anna??? Wow, she got tall!!! I've never met her in person, of course, but I've been reading your blog for a year now, so I remember when she was a little munchkin. She's gorgeous!
