Incredible sewing job! Your shirt is gorgeous!

Thanks all! Now that I've successfully donated that shirt, I'm thinking of donating another finished garment which I will never wear. They think I've made these things for them, so it's a win-win. This one: http://sewing.patternreview.com/review/pattern/97507

I think it turned out very nice, and LOVE the use of piping! I don't think it looks like PJs, but would be pretty with a vest, maybe, in coordinating reddish color? Your recipient is lucky for this fabulous gift!

It has a very Victorian feel to it, but the photo say "shirt" to me, not pjs. I guess its' different in person. Glad you found its' true wearer!

It does not look like a pyjama top to me. It looks beautiful and you did splendid work. I love it.

So -- make matching bottoms and wear it as pajamas. Problem solved!

Wear it! Really nice job!

I certainly hope you wear this. It makes me smile, so sunny and happy looking. I do like the buttons on that fabric to. All in all, I would wear this and so you have too!

I think it is so pretty and dainty! I really love it!

I agree with the others, your workmanship is beautiful. I like the piping detail!

I didn't see "pajamas" at all. I'm a fool for yellow though. You should wear it, the finishing is beautiful.

Wow, I aspire to making a pyjama top like this!!!

Thanks again ladies! You are so kind. It's not perfect, I'm really hard on myself, you see. The only garment I've made which came up anywhere near my exacting standards was this one (a lined vest with bound pockets) http://sewing.patternreview.com/review/pattern/92628

Such wonderful sewing, you must wear it!

It's very pretty. I hope you wear it.

This looks so well done - everything finished so very nicely - I do hope you will wear this often - it deserves to be shown off a lot!

Thanks, ladies! Quilting cotton is very soft and lovely to sew. I forgot to mention in the review that I added plackets again. I love sleeve plackets and the extra work involved. (But you probably noticed that from the photographs ;-) )

Very nicely done!

I don't think it looks like a pj top at all. I second Sheeney.

Your fabric looks so soft. The buttons are perfect! Nice job.

I would wear it with an orange pullover and faded jeans or Khakis -- fun retro look.
