Summery lettuce edged tee refashion

Recently I ran across a Lighter Than Air Peasant Top Tutorial by My Gramma Said which uses lettuce edging and I LOVE it.  It’s a great tutorial and I was able to whip up two maternity shirts from some Men’s XL tees which are my new favorite shirts.  (5 weeks from the end of my pregnancy I’m NOT driving 100 miles to the nearest mall for maternity clothes, but the old ones are not doing a stellar job of covering my baby #4 belly!  And there ain’t NOBODY who wants to see the bottom of a pasty white belly hanging out of a shirt.)

Then, while cleaning out my sewing area to make room for baby #4, I discovered a pink onesie I’d bought ages ago at Dollar Tree.  It was the right size for my girly, but she just turned two and I’m liking her more in t-shirts than onesies.   So I thought, “Lettuce edged tee!  Perfect!” 

I just cut off the sleeves and bottom...

...ruffled the edges...

...and  viola!

She seems to like it.  

And with a total price of $1 for the onesie and 20 minutes of work time, I like it too.
