Sewing Your Perfect Size Toddler Onesie Sewing Pattern
There is nothing more rewarding than creating an item that is uniquely yours. With a little sewing skill, you can create the perfect onesie in no time! Besides getting exactly what you want, you will also be able to express your creativity.
Getting started will require:
- Your Matei baby bodysuit pattern
- Preferred fabric
- Color matching thread
- 1 normal zipper (length depends on the size)
- elastic 1 cm wide
- fusible interlining tape
- Sewing machine
- 0.7 cm seams
- 1.5 cm zipper seam allowance
If you're looking for a fabric that is both comfortable and stylish, you can't go wrong with a light or medium weight woven fabric. Knit fabric, cotton, French terry, jersey knit, and bamboo stretch are all great options that will feel soft and gentle on your skin, even stretch fabric might be an option. For something a little more luxurious, try plush fur or stretch towelling. And if you're looking for a fabric that will keep you warm and cozy, fleece is always a good choice. Whichever fabric you choose, you're sure to be happy with the results.
How much fabric do you need for your diy onesie?
Material width determines the amount of fabric needed. The following table outlines the size and amount of fabric needed for each size based on a useful fabric width of 140-150cm. The pieces need to be adjusted to fit your available width if you are using patterns or fabrics of varying widths or design (think stripes, plaids, etc.).
Check your contraction!
A must-do! There are a few things that are worth taking the extra time to do. One of those things is measuring the contraction of your fabric before cutting. Steaming the raw material at its maximum heat recommendation will help you achieve accurate measurements. And, you'll be confident that your finished garment will hold its sewn size after washing - unlike if you had skipped this step and ended up with a garment that shrank after the first wash.
How to sew it

As soon as everything is set up, we can begin sewing. We have included instructions with our pattern that are easy to follow.
Simply follow along!
- Apply a 1 cm (max) fusible interlining tape on the right side of both center front seam allowances to match the zipper placement. fig 1

- Push the right center front fabric towards the center of the zipper (0.5 cm), place the facing strip below and sew a topstitch at 0.5 cm. fig 2

- On the wrong side of the back piece, apply an elastic on the heel area, between the 2 notches. Cut a piece of elastic to the required length.
- Secure the elastic at one end with a pin. Stretch the elastic across the fabric, pinning at regular intervals. The fabric will be loose under the elastic.
