Back in March my daughter turned 1. It happened much quicker than I would have liked, but it happened nonetheless. I decided to make her an outfit for her party. I'd seen those birthday shirts and onesies around on the internet - you know, the ones with their age on the front. I decided why not. Her party was a luau theme so I chose a bright hibiscus print. I used this circle skirt tutorial to make the skirt. I used my wonderful serger to do a rolled hem around the bottom with contrasting thread rather than a traditional hem. I also dabbled with this dying elastic tutorial, but I couldn't get the color just right, so I went with white. For the top I simply printed a "1" from the computer (from word), cut it out, traced it on my fabric, and sewed it to the onesie. I knew I should have used 'heat n bond' but I was lazy and didn't. USE IT! The "1" started fraying right away! In addition to her age, I cut out a couple of the hibiscus' from the left over fabric and I sewed them on to the shoulders of the onesie, just for some added detail. Being March there was still a chill in the air so I threw some tights on her legs and she was good to go! It was a great party!!! 5 months later and she still wears the skirt.
