So here is my Tutorial. I have not been feeling myself the last week or so and have not felt up to sitting at the computer and writing up this tutorial.
It all started with this find at the local thrift store. It was soooo cute and I bought it saying - I CAN MAKE THIS. At the time I had not seen a tutorial for it but since then I have done a little research and have found similar ones. Most put the skirt up really high and don't have the cute applique.
TO BEGIN: (I made this using a 0-3 month onesie, so you may want to lengthen the skirt for a bigger size)
Onesie - size 0-3 month
Skirt material - 5 1/2 inches by WOF (width of fabric = 44-45 inches)
Ruffle Material -Three pieces 1 1/2 - 2 inches by WOF (total about 120 inches)
Applique - Left over material
Wonder under or Heat n Bond
First off you have to choose what you want to applique on the front. I went to my photoshop files and some of the fonts I have that have images rather then letters and looked through them. I choose a handful since I couldn't choose just one at the time. Plus I have my cute daughter that likes to think I let her make all the choices. So here are some of the things I found.
On to the construction of the skirt.
Pick up your 3 pieces of the ruffle and sew together the short edges. I used my serger because I like the finished edge on my seams.
