Turn a onesie into a dress in minutes!
I cut this onesie in half, then made a skirt out of cotton fabric and attached it to look like a dress, so that Ruby can still wear it. I adore stripes and dots, and this gets more use out of barely worn baby clothes. The onesie is knit, so it's stretchy --and of course still fits Ruby on top.
To make the skirt I did the formula: waist measurement x 3= cut piece of cotton
So for Ruby, it was about 60 inches wide by 12 inches in length. I then hemmed the bottom, stitched up the side, and gathered the top portion to fit the circumference of the onesie. Then I sewed it on right sides together and finished the seam so it won't fray.
Turned out kinda cute, yes? :o)
If you have any questions on how I did this just email me-I'm always happy to share!
What a monkey!
