My friend, Kym, gave me an old but beloved "Absolute Peace" t-shirt of hers over a year ago to do something with, but I finally made something with it! Her daughter, Odessa, is just a few months older than Charlotte (when I met Kym, we were both pregnant with our girls, actually) and she likes girly and ruffly things as much as Charlotte. Despite the shirt's thinly-veiled reference to the old Absolut Vodka ads, we thought it would make a great Abbey Nightie for sweet Odie.
Each time I make this self-drafted pattern, I improve it a little. I think I finally have it in final draft form and want to write down formal instructions to keep for posterity. Here are some shots of it on a hanger. It's hard to tell properly, but the ruffle is dark green (from an old Michigan State t-shirt) and the binding is purple (from an old Northwestern University t-shirt). The picture on the shirt has green and purple accents, so it looks cute in person.
Here is a shot Kym sent me of Odie modeling the nightie. Such a sweetie!!!
