When I have free time, and for a while I had nothing but free time, I recreate things. Recycling, I think is the greatest idea ever. So I picked up a baby onesie from Goodwill for a dollar while I was visiting my Mom's, and have just recently gotten around to revamping it for Villainy (my wirehair jack russell) to wear.

After slipping on the onesie onto the pup, I gathered the excess material, being mindful of where her front legs would be comfortable, and baste-marked with dots. I sketched what the finished shirt was going to look like on the inside of the shirt.

This is a shot of the new seam, and where it is in relation to the original onesie.

When flipped right side out, this is how much material I was doing away with.

I reinforced my seam with a simple zigzag stitch, and then I trimmed it.

The new hem!

Finished! Yayyyyy!

I typed up a bit more in-depth tutorial here: http://base-aesthetic.blogspot.com/2008/02/craft-minded.html

This is my first tutorial that is sewing related. So, if there are any questions or something just doesn't make sense, please let me know! Thank you for looking.

I bought some baby shirts from the dollar store for my pup, but I still haven't gotten around to altering them.  Yours looks great.  Makes me wonder what I've been waiting for.

Our girl was a pound puppy, we were told she was chihuahua mix, but I'm 99% positive she has some Jack Russell in her... so the fact that you have named your pup Villainy, I find hilarious and completely appropriate!!  Cheesy

There is no life I know, to compare with pure imagination. Living there, you'll be free if you truly wish to be...
