Gwen, I am just astonished at the transformation here! I would never, never have guessed that your new pajama top had been made from anything other than standard yardage. It looks terrific, and I also really like the pattern layout you showed. Makes me want to copy you!

Very original & also quite pretty ! Thanks for the pattern layout, that can be the difficult part of refashioning!

Very cute - I have this pattern and intend to make a slew of pjs soon. Will have to pull it out.

Using two tees is just an amazing transformation! Even using smaller sizes I find lots of the patterns just have necklines and shoulder areas way too open unless I redraw them. If someone says the neck is open on a pattern I know I better not go there or plan to do a lot of redrafting so thanks for the warning.

Thanks for the compliments all! And mssewcrazy, if you see this, I think the neckline would not be too open for most people, I'm just used to high necks in my sleepwear and generally prefer v-necks to scoop-necks. My picture shows quite well how it fits on me, I just need to find the timer on my camera's display before I can photograph myself in a garment.

Great refashion to create this flattering top from two shapeless t-shirts.

Love this! I have a bunch of old tees from volunteering and this is a great idea to use them up.
