Dressing Up Onsies Tutorlal

Haha, this post cracks me up. Because I started it in May. Yep, months ago. Which means that the pictures are of Emily when she’s two months old!


I had quite a collection of onesies, so I decided to add a little flair to some of them!


Option 1
The light pink one became a cute little ruffle-butt onesie. It was really pretty simple.

DSCN0638I started by cutting some 1 1/2″ strips out of knit fabric (so I didn’t have to finish the edges). Sew a basting stitch down the center of the strips–don’t backstitch! Pull the threads to create the ruffles.

Then just attach the ruffles to the back of the onesie. I did three rows. Make sure that you overlap the ruffles a little so they create a nice full look.

Option 2
Two of the onesies became little dresses. I cut them like an empire waist style.


Then it was like creating an elastic waist skirt, except you use the top of the onesie instead of elastic. I recommend using this tutorial from Freshly Picked as a guide.

Look how little she is!

And… I’ve since cut the bottom of the onesie off to make a little shirt for her! And… she’s outgrown that too!

(It’s been so long that I don’t remember what I did with the fourth onesie!)
