Refashion: Onesie To Hoodie

6 Comments

This the second in a three part series showing how I upcycled an old Onesie into three new garments.

The first post showed how to make a pair of tracksuit (jogging) bottoms and this one shows how to make the matching Hoodie.

before  and after

I had previously emancipated the top part of the onesie from its lower body and was left with this: –

P1040781

The centre front zip was cut out next…..

P1040782

….and a new centre front seam was made by sewing right sides together and overlocking the raw edges.

P1040783

Both sleeves were shortened by a couple of inches, overlocked and then hemmed leaving a small gap through which to thread the elastic.

P1040784

The bottom of the hoodie was overlocked and hemmed in the same way, leaving a gap for the elastic.

P1040785

Having measured loosely around wrists and hips, pieces of elastic were threaded through each of the channels and secured together by hand.

P1040786

Finished!

A cute hoodie to match the tracksuit bottoms.

Not the most appreciative smile in the world….

P1040794

That’s better!

So, that’s how to make a great little hoodie from an old onesie.

  1. Another job well done! πŸ™‚ The little suit looks so comfy and equally perfect for lounging or a bit of rough and tumble outdoors!! Looks like son No 3 came round on the modelling front in the end πŸ˜‰

  2. He’s hardly taken it off since I made it! He’s worn it to both tennis and football this week as well as rolling around in the garden – I’ve never washed one outfit so much in a week!
