Sooo a friend recently posted this photo on facebook, inspiration for a holiday outfit for her little one.
I decided I would do a tutu and a red onesie. Easy!
Wrong. I could not find a red onesie. I tried white and it just looked stupid. So I made a onesie. Mind you, sewing and I? We aren't what you would call *best* friends. I couldnt find any directions online, but I did find the average measurements for babies of certain ages. So I followed the 12 month meausrements, thinking a little too big would be better than a little too small.
I also added ribbons for straps because baby+strapless= hot mess.
Here's the final product:
It seems SO small. TOO small. I'm going to give it to them sometime this week. If it doesn't fit, I'll have to make a bigger one and I don't know,give this one way?
I had some ish in the sewing department, the bottom got a little funky.
I had never put snaps on anything before either. It was definitely the easiest part!
Here are the two peices seperated:
It was definitely fun to make, but it is NOT perfect. I just need to try and get to know my sewing machine a little better. Maybe take it on a few more dates, then really show it whose boss.
Let me know what you guys think in the comments and if you have any tips, PLEASE share!
