Baby Vintage Reconstruction

I have been dabbling in designing baby clothes since I now have the opportunity to outfit a little one. I made this baby onsie using a vintage tee from the store and made a pattern from an outfit that I already had. It took the most time designing the pattern, but once that was done I did a mock up and then started working on this cute little thing. It turned out perfect! The tee was originally a XL long sleeve mens shirt with the mermaid on the front pocket area, and the waves on the back. Now I'm going to start looking through our old tees at home that we never wear anymore do to stains, or ill fitting size and turn them into baby clothes! I'll also make a pattern for a long sleeve, t-shirt style, and make them in a few different sizes. Once I get a few made up I may even advertise to make custom ones for sale. FUN!
