Ten Minute Onesie Dress

Ten Minute Onesie Dress This took a little bit longer than 10 minutes, but it was still super quick and easy. This could also be categorized under a refashion, because the fabric is from an old GAP halter dress that doesn’t fit my mommy boobs anymore. I cut a piece from the bottom of the dress and didn’t even have to hem it.
Ten Minute Onesie Dress

I got inspired to sew this dress from this tutorial. Instead of using a onesie I used a tank top that I bought at Old Navy for $5. I also made her dress have an empire waist for added cuteness. Here is the tutorial I used to make the headbands. For mine, I used the straps of the halter dress instead of elastic.

I am LOVING headbands right now because I never have time to blow dry my hair anymore. AND it covers up all the stupid, wispy hairs that are growing back in from when I lost fistfuls of hair everyday during my early post partum days. Those same stupid, wispy hairs are also growing back in white. Can thank my mother for those. She was completely white by her mid thirties. Awesome. Can’t wait.

  1. […] made this skirt for myself. I had hopes of making a dress, similar to the last dress I made Penelope, and I envisioned it to come out kinda of like this dress, but with a wide elastic […]
