Update:  I modified the panties so that they sit a bit lower on the hips.  The previous version was way too high and I was afraid that it looked like an oversized diaper cover, lol

Thanks everyone!  The next step is to shorten the sleeves Smiley

 I've been wanting to try to my hand at re-constructing clothes into something fun and out of the ordinary.

I had this perfectly respectable flannel backed satin nightgown that I hardly ever wear and thought it would be cute as a babydoll nightie.  I cut just enough length to get the fabric I needed for the bloomers, added lace and here it is.  


Still think I might take the sleeves off, but given that it's flannel backed I might just leave it as it is Smiley

That looks so pretty!  Honestly, I can't see any unevenness due to the the way it folds.  I thought it might look too full without the petticoat but I think it hangs beautifully.  Thanks for posting it Smiley

That would be great!  I'd love to see another pic.  I like the idea of a circle skirt but never attempted making one for the same reason - that it needed a petticoat.

Here's a photo as promised  Smiley
I am wearing a relatively narrow slip to keep the skirt from being see-though but no petticoat.



I think circle skirts look great without petticoats too, I just like wearing petticoats Tongue
If you look at the hem of it like this, you can see how some parts hang lower than others - that's because it stretched on the bias, so watch out for that if you make one (it's best if you can let the skirt hang for a day then mark the hem while it's on a person or form so it hangs stretched). I think you should totally try making one if you like the idea!

Thanks again everyone  Smiley

The whole outfit is just adorable!  I'd be curious to see how the skirt hangs without the petticoat. 
Great job Smiley

I think the unevenness of the hem becomes very obvious without the lift from the petticoat. Other than that though, it just falls into large waves. Would you like me to take a picture later? I don't mind.

That is beautiful.  I had no idea you could buy an apron pre-cut.  Love the buttons and lace.  Great job!

I took some better pictures with better lighting to replace the previous ones.  Thanks again for looking Smiley
