Tutorial: Onesie to T Shirt with No-Sew Option

Sometimes, a baby can't use a onesie (like if you are doing EC and want easy access and not to have a wet shirt for every "miss").  But if you are like me, everyone gives you onesies. Use them!

Here is an easy solution: make those onesies into t-shirts.

Step 1: Cut the bottom, right above where it tapers in.  You can stop here and call it a day (this is the no-sew option).

Onesies are generally made of stretch cotton and won't fray.
Step 2: If you want to make the edge look more finished, roll it under then roll it under again (hiding the first roll under the second).  Then stitch once, from the front of the garment.

Start on the outermost edge, so you make sure and catch the whole underside rolled part in the seam.

Try not to stretch the fabric as you sew~ the more you stretch, the less flat it will lay.  You can stop here and call it a day.
Step 3: If you want to mimic a professional serged seam, go around again, this time close to the bottom edge.  Adding this second row of stitching makes it look cleaner.

Viola!  You are finished.
