Babies spend a onesie dress tutoriallot of time in sleepsuit/onesies, they’re easy to get on and off a wriggly squirming baby! The thing is, when you have a new baby girl you want to dress her in girly things so I’ve found a solution, this onesie dress tutorial from Emma’s blog

Now I’ve done my own take on this, I live in Scotland and we’re coming into the cold weather so I used a sleepsuit (see right). I also upcycled an old shirt so had to fiddle around a bit to get enough fabric.

 

 

 

I took the back of the shirt and Materialscut 2 strips, overlocked around the edges the joined the 2 sides.

From there I followed the Gathered tuble to make skirtinstructions on the blog, doing the gathers was fiddly but keep measuring against the sleepsuit till it fits.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I had some trim in my stash so edged the hem with it to pretty it up, then I made a wee bow for the kneck and VOILA, a pretty but cosy dress for your baby girl!

  1. You did a great job!  I love twist using a sleepsuit.

  2. Wendy Dooner says:

    You could do the mini bow for a boy perhaps and make it a dapper bow tie jumpsuit. This is an easy to follow pattern with infinite options on colours and trims.

  3. What a great idea!  You could vary that infinitely too.  Well done.
