Shrunken onesie revamp

I bought these onesies for Small Fry when I was in New York at a souvenir shop. Of course when I washed them they shrunk terribly. I didn't want them to just be put away without her getting to wear them so I decided to turn them into dresses. I started a tutorial with the white onesie which says, "somebody in New York Loves me" but as I was making this little outfit it got more and more complicated and I realized that there was no way I could explain in words what in the world I did. So instead you can just see the before....

And the after!!
It ended up being shorter than I wanted so I just put a pair of leggings on her too.

I will make one confession about this project: I have had these for a while and wanted to try this out and today I just decided to get it done but like I say it got more complicated as it went and I don't like to start something and not finish it so poor small fry was left to watch mindless cartoons and entertain herself and I didn't even feed her breakfast until 10am. I know, I know, send the bad mother award right this way please. At one point she was really quite so I went to the living room to see what she was doing and saw her slouched in a ball in her little rocking chair with her play cell phone to her ear. The look on her face said, "I will just have to call grammy since mom is not paying enough attention to me." But she looked really cute in her new outfit today. The other one I made much simpler and will add a picture when I get it on my little model.
