Onesie Dress: A tutorial review

I have wanted to try this tutorial for a while now. Some friends of ours just welcomed home a baby girl and finally I had the perfect opportunity to test it out.
All-in-all, this was a super straight forward tutorial. I highly recommend it. You could definitely whip out a bunch of these in a very short amount of time.
The only note I would add is that in step 8, you need to pull the elastic as tight as it will go. The first time I tried this, I was just gently pulling the elastic and it was not reaching far enough. The second go round, I pulled it as tight as possible and it fit perfectly.
Other than that, the only change I made to mine was by adding a couple inches to the length. I intend this dress to be used in the fall so I wanted the skirt to be a little longer in lengh.
To add a little more pizzaz to mine, I am going to have either the name or monogram embroidered onto the top of the onesie. I love over-the-top stuff and personalization- that is just how I roll:)
So, if you need a quick gift or new outfit for a baby girl, this tutorial definitely fits the bill. Enjoy it here.
