OK so my little one (4 months) has a plethora of onesies. I am just not "into" the onesie and pants look for my babies (the other which is 15...years. lol). So when I found a blogger talking about making a onesie into a dress or adding a skirt, etc. I had a lightbulb moment.

Here is the first completed project. I went out Saturday with a bag of onesies determined to get a few pieces of fabric to convert them into dresses. For less than $8 I was able to get fabric to convert 4 onesies, plus make headbands and have some coordinating fabric to use to do on bloomers or some such. I have a stash that I can use to supplement and pop in contracting fabric and trims, etc. which is what I did with the raspberry fabric here.




So here is Ms.Q struttin her new outfit. She was watching Ne Hao Kai Lan and super tired ...thus the silly expression and quick snapshot. Nicer pic to come later. The skirt has two tiers and a raspberry bias cut border on the bottom . That same raspberry fabric was used to make the bloomer. Headband from coordinating fabric to skirt and flowers made from once again, the raspberry fabric which was in my stash.
Hopefully tonight I can knock at at least two of the others if not all three, if the teething will let the poor peanut sleep!

There are several tutorials out there on how to make a onesie into a dress, and there are a couple of ways to do it.

You can look at the different tutorials and decide how you want to make yours depending on what you have and what you want the final look to be.
Thanks for all your nice comments. Wink I have four more pieces waiting to redo.

Your matching fabric is dead on perfect! I think the headband adds that extra pizazz too! Great work!
