{i craft} onesie dress.

Onesie Dress

nesting is in full force. we're somewhat unsettled in our current place, waiting for possession of our new home in early july. but, i couldn't wait any longer. i dusted off the sewing machine and out came the crafting boxes...

i originally spotted this 10-minute onesie dress project & tutorial on one of my favorite sites, prudent baby. i thought i'd give it a whirl and LOVE the result!

it's a great way to spruce up a plain onesie and make use of those scrap fabrics. i designed my own little birdie applique for the top of the dress. i can't wait to make a few more!

things i learned.

start big. i should have chosen a 12 mos+ sized onesie for my first project. working with the itty bitty 3-6 mos size was a little taxing.

measure twice. cut once. now i know why that should be rule of thumb. ensure you have plenty of fabric to start with for the skirt for enough pleat.

I just made one. It did take more then 10 minutes...but everything does when ones life is full of distractions. Now that I have made one I think it would take less then 10 minutes to make a second. Would also save time if I did not sew the heads of the pins inside next time!
