Those are super fun!

Are they hard to put together?  I have a 7 week old niece who would look quite fetching in one of those!

Cute!  I like the polka dots best.   Grin

My sis sells similar outifts... she uses lace or tulle trims for the skirt though so they look like tutus and she puts iron on transfers on the bodice.

You can do the same thing with t-shirts. My mom did it when i was younger and i loved to wear them.

I'm working on the tutorial now, should have it finished in a little bit. I would have started sooner but i had to get to the library before closing. It won't be open again until Monday.

I measure the circumference of the onesie and double it. So the measurement for your fabric will be double the circumference of the onesie and 10 long.





Iron & sew a hem on one side of the long end of the fabric. (not the 10 side)


Cut a piece of elastic thats as long as the circumference of the onesie. Opposite the hem i fold down a little of the fabric and attach the elastic with a zig zag stitch. This is where the the waistband will shrink up to size to fit around the onesie




Usually I dont measure and cut the elastic. I just sew the elastic on while its in one big strip then when I reach the end of the fabric I cut the threads and elastic at the same time. This way I will always have enough elastic.
Then take the two short ends and sew them together to form the skirt.



Fold the onesie in half (top to bottom) to determine the middle. Then fold it lengthwise to find the center.  I like to mark the middle and the center with air erasable marking pen.  This also helps me keep the skirt straight when I sew it onto the onesieno I did not learn this lesson the hard and very crooked way.  Shocked







Pin the skirt in place using the back center as the starting point. The skirt should be wrong side out and make sure that the skirt bottom is facing the top of the onesie.

After it is all pinned sew with a zig zag stitch. I make sure to go over the edge of the elastic facing the skirt bottom.



Flip the skirt back over and vwhyohlee you are done.  If I left anything out or anything doesnt make sense please let me know.  Im happy to make sense of my constructions.  Grin

Thanks for the tutorial. I will have to make some of these for my little cousin. I do have one question.. When you zigzag the elastic is that what makes it gather  to fit your onesie circumference, or do I have to do something special? I am not really good at gathering yet. Also , what size elastic do you normally use?

yup when you zig zag the elastic pull on it so that it is stretched out while you are sewing then it will gather and bunch up. the size of elastic i use is 3/8", you could probably use smaller or bigger whatever you are comfortable with. try practicing with a scrap first that's what i did. HTH

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

I was looking for something fun to do for Easter for the little one!  I can buy my older nieces anything with glitter on it and they go nutso, but glittering up a little one is just wrong.

If mine look half as good as yours, I will post a picture.  Don't hold your breath, though!

Thanks again!

I have a question.  I am super, incredibly, massively, horribly awful with stretchy fabrics.  I tried t-shirt dresses before and, although I know they should be really easy, mine come out looking awful.  How do you keep the shirt/onesie and the gathers from all stretching out together so that you get one shapeless, "middless" blob?  Mine look like potato sacks.  (In fact, I have one left that I made for my now-8-yo when she was a preschooler.  My now-preschooler wears it, and she will actually point and tell me, "I wanna wear 'e potato sack.  Roll Eyes )  Surely I must be missing something, right?  I'd love to be able to make these, because dresses for babies with built in crotch fasteners like this (so they don't ride up) are only ever available sleeveless in the stores.
