I also thought it was high time baby #3 got a little attention. When Sawyer was a newborn and had jaundice he had to wear gowns to accommodate his bili blanket. They were so convenient and comfy, but not so cute.
When Nora came along I knew I wanted a few cute gowns so I made a few using girly, soft fabric on the bottom and a repurposed onesie on top. Here's a picture to refresh your memory (how cute and tiny…can't believe there will soon be another one that small)
This time around I knew I wanted a more masculine gown. When I saw this Rockin' Baby Gown on Pinterest from This Mama Makes Stuff I knew it was the perfect solution.
The first gown took awhile as I had to put together the pattern and get a feel for the tutorial. But once I made the 1st one (it probably took 3 hours) the other 2 were simple and were completed within an hour. Here's my interpretation of the repurposed t-shirt baby gown.
Baby Gowns made from re-purposed t-shirts
I purchased all 3 shirts at Goodwill, but this would be a terrific project to use old shirts from your favorite sports team or your alma mater (must indoctrinate them early). But one bit of advice if you want your gown entirely made from one shirt it needs to be at least a Men's Large.
And here's a sneak peek at my current and probably final craft for baby #3. More details to come when I'm finished...
