a onesie (I used a small so that size is what these measurements reflect)
a strip of 14″ x 44″ eyelet and solid white fabric
1/2″ elastic, approx. 15-20 inches
a random button
about 20″-30″ pink 1 1/2 ribbon
yellow ribbon for base of skirt and waist
needle and thread
This allowed for me to make the bloome.
sewed a 1/2″ seam pocket for the elastic, threaded it through and closed it up. Done.
Then pulled it tight to gather the top.
(I don’t have a fancy machine, so we do things the hard way!).
I centered the back seam of the skirt with the back of the onesie top, and pinned the 1/4’s around to make sure it was even, then just sewed it in place.
Make sure you have good sides to good sides.
I could have stopped there, but why?
Then I went through my trusty button tin, and found this cute extra button from an old outfit’s extra button pack and sewed it onto the center.
I added the yellow ribbon around the bottom and center of the dress just to clean it up. and lastly tacked on the little pink rose. And here are the final results:
(Actually, the cutest detail will be the baby Buddha belly tucked in this little number!)
