Apple Onesie and Baby Skirt

I made this onesie and skirt for a friend's baby.  I used an iron-on fabric between the apple and the onesie, I ironed, and sewed. 
I looked for a while at different skirt tutorials, because I wanted one where I could use a rectangle of fabric so the stripes would line up.  I finally found a really great skirt tutorial, and it's adaptable to any size!  Here you can see where someone has adapted it for a baby.

I also found this very useful chart for baby and toddler sizes that helped me figure out the dimensions for the skirt.
While making the skirt I felt like I had too much elastic for the waist, so I cut off a couple of inches.  Elastic can be added or taken away without too much trouble, even after the skirt is finished.  It was a really fun project, and I will definitely be making more of these skirts in the future!
