I had some leftover fabric from the butter yellow chemise and the grass green Irish dress, so I decided to make a yellow sleeveless pullover and a pair of green pajama pants so I could wear the colors together away from faire.
Used the same basic pattern as the terry cloth robe, just put a square neck on it and sewed the seam up the side. Sewed up the arm holes without any sleeve. The pants are just sewn up the side seam, sew a channel for the waistband, then cut up the middle (I used a pair of pants that I love for the rise measurement) and sewed it up. Hemmed them and put in a pocket. I absolutely love pockets.
Easy...and a great way to use up the leftover fabric and get new cloths.
