Thrifty Sleep Shirt

Quite awhile ago at a thrift store, I bought a man’s shirt, and when I got it home, it was bigger than I normally wear, so I left it in the closet. Not long ago, I found another one, and when I brought it home, it was extra big too. I was thinking I would just sleep in them, but they were kind of short for that, so tonight I turned both of them into one long sleep shirt.

I cut 6” off the bottom of the first one….

…and sewed it onto the bottom of the second one, lining up the seams. They lined up perfectly. I also sewed the shirt front closed by sewing the left and right sides together at the buttons.

(I’m actually shocked that I’m showing you this and my fat drumsticks legs, but you will notice that I cut off my FAT ankles and wide feet.) Ta da! Comfy sleep shirt!

I guess I can say I did ONE thing constructive today! (Or two. I did get ONE load of laundry in the washing machine!)

I love it! What a great idea. And it's so cute, that I wouldn't be embarrassed to answer the door wearing it on my next unproductive day. :) (Why do packages arrive on the days I am still in my jammies in the mid afternoon?)

You are so funny -- finding matching shirts at thrifts shops! Smart redo on your part. I should consider this idea... but really could pull some of the closet next to mine, non-matching, and maybe I'm just tired of seeing them anyway? LOL!
