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.
I had previously emancipated the top part of the onesie from its lower body and was left with this: –
The centre front zip was cut out next…..
….and a new centre front seam was made by sewing right sides together and overlocking the raw edges.
Both sleeves were shortened by a couple of inches, overlocked and then hemmed leaving a small gap through which to thread the elastic.
The bottom of the hoodie was overlocked and hemmed in the same way, leaving a gap for the elastic.
Having measured loosely around wrists and hips, pieces of elastic were threaded through each of the channels and secured together by hand.
A cute hoodie to match the tracksuit bottoms.
Not the most appreciative smile in the world….
So, that’s how to make a great little hoodie from an old onesie.
