I always been a fan of dressing Melanie in T-shirts and pants instead of onesies. Call me a lazy bitch but it just seems easier to deal with pants over snaps AND pants.

Step One:

Gather your supplies and lay out the onesie on a flat surface.

Step Two:

Using the old T-shirt as a pattern (lay it on top of the onesie and match up the shoulder seams), cut the bottom off the onesie.

Don't forget to add about a 1/2 an inch for a seam allowance.

Step Three:

Turn the tee inside out and lay it on your ironing surface.

Step Four:

Turn the bottom up to make a 1/2 inch seam and press (don't stretch!) with the iron.

Step Five:

Use a straight stitch on your sewing machine and sew one seam closer to the cut edge. If you have a Serger, skip this step and just run a seam around the cut edge.

Be sure to gently pull the fabric as you sew so the knit can stretch properly.

Step Six:

Next, sew another seam closer to the folded edge. This will create a nice double seam that matches those generally found on onesies.

Step Seven:

Turn the T-shirt right side out and enjoy!

Melanie looks adorable in her semi-DIY T-shirt (especially with a tutu!), This project was so easy that I'm planning on making LOTS more of these.
