Really, this outfit should be titled “The Big Navy Dye Fail” because that purple/blue t-shirt was originally a regular white shirt, and I wanted to do a nautical themed outfit for the little lady. I dyed the first shirt and it was really light, despite adding the vinegar or salt or whatever it was that it called for. So, I went for another shirt, and left it in longer and added more dye and more additive, and this was the result. Purple-ish. So I scrapped the nautical theme and just went for some girly pajamas. Next time!
I made a raglan shirt (sans collar) using a leftover white shirt and one of the dyed shirts, then added some butterflies in hot pink and glittery silver Cricut® Iron-on Material that I cut using my Cricut® Mini. It was such a fast and easy way to spruce up some simple pajamas! Butterflies are definitely a winner for my little girl. They went on really fast and painlessly, I really like how easily something plain can be taken to something great with the Iron-on.
I also made some leggings with the shirt, and couldn’t leave them plain! I ironed on some HAPPY while, ironically, this child was screaming in her bedroom about not wanting to go to bed. It helps to create an illusion ;) Of course, this morning the pants really did make her happy because they had glitter sparkles on them! I told her they were for bedtime but she has been wearing the whole thing all day.
The ruffles were added to the front of the shirt before I added the sleeves, and they add the final girly touch to the outfit.
