Got a baby shower coming up? How about whipping up a couple of onesie dresses. They take less than half an hour each and they are as cheap as you can buy a onesie. The skirt is scrap from other projects and the ribbon is from my I'm-really-going-to-use-it-someday ribbon collection.
I started with an inexpensive 6-9 month sized onesie. This one is pink and white stripes but the horrible photos mean you can't really see the stripes. It really is a cute little outfit, I promise.
I laid the onesie down flat and measured across the center. It's about 18 inches around.
These little dresses are great summer wear for babies. They can go out in a lightweight onesie but still be dressed up and cute. If you've got a good pattern for them, you could make a pair of fabric booties to match as well. Babies always have the cutest outfits. Lucky babies. I haven't gotten to wear a onesie since I was 19. (If you remember we called them "body suits" and they were cool. I also had the body to get away with shirts that tight at the time. Lucky 19 year olds.)
