Outside of the Box: A Simple Yoke and PJ Eater

I was in Goodwill the other day. (Lots of great craft stories start out this way don't you think) And I found this shirt.
Uh Yikes. 

When I saw it there was no way I was going to wear it but I saw a lot of potential for it becoming a PJ Eater. You can find the pattern for them here.
 I think she turned out pretty well.

I still had some leftover fabric from the shirt. So I made this shirt for my daughter.
I took her measurements, and cut out two rectangles to match those measurements, I sewed them together and hemmed it on both sides. For the yoke I made a simple lace strip to go around the bodice and two more strips for the straps.

The repeating pattern for the lace strip is:
Row 1: Ch the amount of ch you want in multiples of 2, dc in third ch from hook, and in each ch
Row 2: Ch 4,* sk 1 dc, (dc and ch 1) in next dc* repeat to end
Row 3: Ch 4,* 3dctog in next dc, ch 1* repeat to second to last dc, dc in last dc.
Row 4: Ch 4, 1 dc and 1 ch in each 3dctog, dc in last dc
Row 5: Ch 3, dc in each ch space and dc across
Continue repeating rows 2-5 till you have the length desired.
