OMG that is so cute. I thought pillow case clothing only existed in Harry Potter. This is actually a great idea!


Thank you! I made one so that my daughter could be Wendy from Peter Pan. It fit her perfectly! Here are pictures: http://mamagab.blogspot.com/2012/10/my-darling-children-that-gap-between.html


Thank you so much for posting this pattern. I made a couple for my baby girl. Check out the post here. http://mustardseeds.typepad.com/my_weblog/2012/07/summer-nightgowns.html

Thanks for this! I made one and posted it here -http://jamesandleighann.blogspot.com/2011/03/pillowcase-nightgown.html


So sweet! I am a bit bummed that I can't seem to make the sleeves work but maybe tomorrow I will give it another whirl.

Thank you for this pattern. I made one as a dress for my daughter and a matching skirt for myself for Christmas.


Thanks! I made a few variations of this, but changed a few details. So far I've made two slips and a party dress. http://www.flickr.com/photos/mouse_song/6423564233/

Hello from Scotland and thanks for sharing this tutorial and making it easy.
I used a vintage cotton linen pillowcase as my daughter can't have polyester against her skin unfortunatley and used a cat button she chose and she really loves it...and your sizing template was spot of for my extra tall 3yo.

I love it! I googled 'nightie pattern' and you popped up. I've got quite a little stash of vintage pillowcases and a girl who prefers nighties to pjs, so I'm going to give this a go. Thanks for sharing.

My grandmother had the same sheet as the first nightgown. I have been saving it for something special- this might be it!

Thought you might want to see the one I made for my 5 year old. I used your pattern and it fits her just fine. I just hemmed the neckline and added a little loop for the button hole to give her a bit more room. Thanks! http://emilyflippinmaruna.wordpress.com/2011/04/15/pillowcase-nightgown/

I'm going to make one of these! I've blogged about it here - http://emilyflippinmaruna.wordpress.com/2011/04/03/make-make-monday-vintage-sheets-upcycled/


These are so cute! Thank you for sharing your idea!


Thank you for the tutorial. My daughter needs a new nightgown, and I love the modest, simple details.


I have those exact sheets (from the last 2 pictures)!!!! They were mine when I was a little girl. My mom gave them to me in case I wanted to use them for something for my 2 girls. I was looking for patterns for pillowcase nightgowns and found your site. How weird!!!


I want to make one for my daughter, I didn't see the dimensions for the skirt part of the nightgown on your instructions and patterns. Please let me know what these would be Thanks!


Would love to ad your tutorial to my blog: http://vintagesheets.blogspot.com. please let me know if that would be ok.


I FINISHED mine... It did not work great with the sleeves so I made my own .... I had to enlarge the pattern a little... You can find it onn my blog with a link to this post!
