Upcycled newborn gown/hat sets! More added 6/26, many from brand new shirts as well!
 
Gowns on a newborn come in quite handy, I think, for those 37 diaper changes a day in their first weeks of life. :giggle: Just lift up the bottom, change the diaper (or go visit the potty for you ECers ;)), pull it back down and you're good to go with little interruption to sleep for either one of you. :) The gowns are "newborn" gowns, but they will fit up to about six months.

Here is a picture of my sweet 2-week-old niece modeling one of the gowns. (I don't have a newborn of my own handy right now, lol.) She is a little peanut and was about 6 lbs 5 oz in this picture. Her sleeves are about 9.75" long and the overall gown length is 19". My niece is about nine months old now, and my sister still occasionally puts the gown onto my niece. :)

I made these gowns from t-shirts that I found at various thrift stores, and also random new shirts that I scored on clearance. As I hunt for more cute ones, I will be adding more! (Check post #2 to see what shirts are next in line to be sewn.) Some have a hat and some have slightly shorter sleeves or overall length, depending on how big the shirt was that I started with. If I know the fiber content, I'll post it, but I cut most of these out last year, before the life and death of my baby, and I've forgotten for sure which ones are 100% cotton and which ones are blends. I will also note wich ones are from a new shirt and which ones are from an upcycled shirt. Prices do NOT include shipping but each ensemble weighs between 3-6 oz, so one or two of them can easily go First Class.

Okay, enough of the fine print. Show me the gowns!

Cool beans. :) Most of the assortment I have are GN b/c when I first started collecting shirts, I was going to do so for a baby of unknown gender of my own (who is now almost 2 and way too big for these gowns, lol). Plus, I usually get men's shirts since it's easier to get the gowns cut out of those than out of a ladies' shirt.

BUT.... if you end up having a girl, I can ruffle the edges of the sleeves to make it more girly. :wub: Can do the same thing to the hat, too. :wub: :wub:
