Gear Thursday: awesome custom onesies

This is hands down one of my favorite pieces of clothing that Miloh has...in fact he wore it for over 24 hours the first time we put it on him (that's when the picture is from...so it's a couple weeks old.)

It was made by Emily from Baby Dickey. She takes your old tees and makes them into great gown style onesies.

I sent her an Iron Maiden shirt that no longer fit...washed it 3 times and it became a tube top...but don't worry I still wore it with a thermal underneath. Then a bit later I got this in the mail.
Here's a short list of why these rock:
  • They are one of a kind because they come from your shirt
  • Emily's sewing skills rock...the quality is fantastic
  • You know how the onesie will feel a bunch of washes in because you've washed the shirt many times
  • It doesn't shrink because you've washed the shirt many times
  • It just freaking rocks and I shouldn't have to say anything else.

Really the only thing I don't like about these are that I donated a bunch of awesome old shirts before I found out that she did this...they would have made awesome onesies.

What you're gonna want to do is head to the custom onesie page of her site and order one now. All the details are the but here are some basics.

The first onesie is $20 but if you send her a bunch of shirts the price goes down for the additional ones.

An adult medium is needed to guarantee a long-sleeve gown, size 0-6 months. She can work with a smaller shirt, but it may need to be short-sleeve or not fit as long (as it will most likely be shorter in length).

I don't know what else I need to say about these because they just really rock.

  2. ...and now I now what to do with all of Scott's old BSA shirts that he won't throw away but make him look like a west hollywood streetwalker.
