In this project I'll cover
*copying a pre-made onesie to make your pattern
*creating a unique design with fabric paint
*making your own bias tape
*putting it all together
*1/2 - 1 yard fabric for garment depending on your babies size
*1/2 yard fabric for bias tape, preferably 100% cotton
*small bit of tulle netting
*1 piece of printer paper
* fabric paint
Step 1: Creating the Onesie
My example onesie has pointed overlapping flaps at the shoulders instead of a straight seam, I chose to just cut straight across because my purple fabric was not long enough, but if you want to copy this feature: measure how far the wing extends past where the garment naturally folds (the shoulder seam). continue your side seam that distance and simply curve your line back to meet the neck curve, just like you would do when copying the crotch of pants. This your way you do not have to awkwardly move the garment to trace the design feature.
Trace the sleeves on the fold, twice, just as you did for the front and back pieces
Unfold you two large cut fabric pieces and pick the front piece. Lay your cut fabric under your onesie front side down. Trace the deeper neckline and the shorter bottom flap of the front. Now, as you are going to put bias tape on the bottom and neck edges, cut right along the edge of your pattern onesie at these spots, but for the side and shoulder seams leave at least 1/3" of seam allowance.
