Re: Upcycled newborn gowns! More coming soon!

I'm back in town after a short vacation and hoping to get some sewing done this weekend.

Re: Upcycled newborn gowns! More coming soon!

I am back! I have done a TON of sewing in the past few weeks and will be posting pictures as soon as the weather cooperates. All four of the "yet to come" gowns are done, though, as well as probably another 4-5 (although I think I'm keeping the "All the world smiles in the same language" one for myself). I really have a great assortment. I'll try to get some pics up tomorrow if the weather is good.

Glad to see you back!

How quick could your turn around be for a custom?

My niece just arrived this week and I would love to use a couple of my little Bros old high school sports Ts. Or could you make one size up maybe 6-9 mo ish?

Turnaround would be within a couple of days to a week, depending on what I have going on "in real life" (i.e., weekends are busy for me, so if the shirts arrive on Friday then I might not get started on it until Monday) or if I have to get some matching thread (although I'm building quite a stash of that, lol). As for sizing, I could possibly make it bigger, but that would be a longer turnaround time as I play with pattern adjustments.

I have 2 Large mens short sleeved Polo shirts with an emblem near the shoulder. Do you think you could use one/both of those with the emblem on the front of the nightgown?

The way the gown pieces are cut out, it's not likely that I could put the emblem onto the front of the gown (the button-up part of the shirt will get in the way of where I'd need to cut), but I could possibly put it on the hat.

I'd definitely like a couple mama! Maybe even 4-5 if you're up for trading/partial trading for store credit in my Etsy shop.
I'd like more vintage-y shirts, something GN since we're on Team Green, and I'm not crazy about any of the ones you have left. Do you have an album of available shirts?

I don't have an album, but instead just take pics of a group of completed gowns as I complete them. I have three more that I need to take pics of right now, then a big batch of ones that I need to cut and sew. I don't really have any "vintagy" ones, though. (I do have a blue short-sleeve one w/o a cap that says "Easily Distrated" though, lol. That one is yet to be sewn.)
