Disclaimer: I am by no means an expert seamstress, I am self taught so my methods might not be considered "ideal". I just do what works for me through trial-and-error.
One: Find a Onesie that still fits in the shoulders
|My 8 month old daughter typically wears a 12 month Onesie. This is a 6 monther!|
|I like the t-shirts to be as long as possible, but cut it shorter if you prefer.|
|I typically use a 1/2 inch seam allowance.|
Four: Set up your machine. I use the double overlock stitch (two lines with zigzag in between) because I'm lazy like that. Most people will tell you to finish your raw edges first, but I find the overlock stitch does the job just fine without unraveling.
Five: Sew that hem! Be sure to backstitch at the beginning and end of your seam.
|Start at the side seam and work close to the raw edge. This material is a stretchy knit, but the overlock stitch can handle the stretchiness so I don't like to stretch it very much as I go.|
|You can see that I stitched as close to the raw edge as possible.|
|Lookin good Olive!|
