Upcycling Project: Onesie & Pants to Ruffle Outfit

Ruffles look cute on pants. True statement. Ruffles look cute on shirts? Yes, ma’am! I love how this ruffle outfit turned out. I started with a nine month onesie, toddler stretch capri pants, and a thrifted man’s button up.

I’m happy with the end result, and I’m also proud that I’m getting faster and my sewing looks cleaner. My mom is still helping me out with each step, but I’m also able to do more on my own.

Also I’m debating whether the outfit is truly done. I may or may not add a brown ribbon bow around the onesie’s ruffle seam. Ruffles ruffles everywhere!
