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.
