Onesie skirt

Remember the dress that I made of the onesie here. Well I had the bottom part of the onesie that I did not want to waste. I cut off what I needed and then went to town. 

The bottom of the onesie.  I measured a piece of fabric about 1.5 to 2 times the width of the onesie and put right sides together and sewed down the side.  Then I gathered the top and pinned it to the onesie.  I sewed around the top to secure it in place.

Here is the bottom of the onesie with the skirt attached.


This is the elastic. Have you noticed that wide elastic on top of skirts is apparently all the rage these days?  This is 1 1/2 inch wide elastic.  I cut off a piece and then sewed it on top of the skirt.


And there you have it.  A finished skirt with built in bloomers.  Convenient. 

Well, I couldn't stop there because now I had the middle part of the onesie that I shouldn't waste either.  So I made a headband.


Here is the middle part.


I shortened it a little by serging one side of it.  Then I put that seam so it would be covered and folded the piece into thirds towards the middle.  I pinned it and then zig zag around the middle.  I did the stitching in white but you could use a contrasting color if you wanted to.



Then I made three rosettes using torn fabric and hot glued them on.  That is the finished product.


All done.


Here they are together.  Just for you I am putting them in my etsy shop.  That way you don't have to make them.  It is really easy though.  And wasteless.  Happy Friday.  Don't forget to head over here for the giveaway that I am sponsoring tomorrow and all week next week
