The onesie became a fashion craze a few years back in the UK. Everyone was wearing them, and I mean everyone. Men, women and children of all ages and social backgrounds. Some were intended as loungewear or sleepwear but the Norwegian company OnePiece created the modern onesie which was pretty cool and people started wearing them on the streets.
It wasn’t long before our shops were filled with cheap imitations and all hell broke loose.
Unfortunately, some people were unable to distinguish between the outdoor and the indoor onesie and a crazy thing happened. People were wearing their pyjamas in the streets, to Sainsburys, to the swimming pool and to my annoyance anywhere they so pleased. And to make matters worse, guess what? Some people even wore them with Ugg boots. Call the police!
I understand about bringing the outside in, but taking the inside out, what’s with that?
As it happens, I love the onesie on kids. Modern, stylish ones anyway. So I made one for Scout, using The Ziggy top pattern. I just added legs.
It was pure coincidence that the snaps matched Scouts trainers. She certainly turned a few heads the day she wore her onesie out. I just hope that no one thought she was in her PJs. Kids tend to love wearing onesies. My girls are no exception. I’m hoping this one can replace her favourite one which is pink and has a monkey head on the hood. No, I didn’t buy it, or make it (you knew that right?) It was given on to her.
I had planned to stencil something on the back, but I couldn’t decide what. Any suggestions?
