Leg Ruffle Onesie Tutorial

First, get a plain onesie and two strips of 5"x20" of your favorite fabric.
Next, sew (right side to right side)
both strips of fabric,
leaving one opening to flip over... like so.
Use a chop stick to get the right sides showing outward.

Then, begin to pin and pleat the fabric,
like an accordian style.
The best part of this method is that the pleats are clean,
the edges are good,
and the pleating looks more professional than a raw edge.
After pinning,
begin to sew along the leg/thigh portion of the onesie.
Use white thread on the bobbin,
so that the thread is not seen one the onesie.
Make a Yo-Yo...
trace a circle (of a bowl or coffee cup).
Take a piece of thread and needle...
and stitch through the entire edge of the circle...
then pull tight.
This will create a Yo-Yo...
the last step is to bind the center of the yo-yo together
by stitching through the center and tying a knot.
Add a button that matches...
and stitch to onesie!

All done!
This simple,
and makes a plain 'ol onesie look
