Default Chi clothes from baby clothes?

Had a passing thought whilst in tescos... has anyone tried making clothes from baby clothes? If so, what size do you go for?

I was thinking you can take the back in to ge the arm holes in the right place.


I'm asking before I try as last time I had to sew was a part of my skirt in high school some 5 or 6 years ago so I'm a Newbie at best so I thought maybe some of you could give me a yay or nay

If you can make something out of it, why not I often give cute baby clothes fabrics to my friend to make cute harnesses from

I made a t-shirt for Florrie from a baby-gro I got from a charity shop. I unpicked the whole thing, though, and then used the fabric and trim to make up a pattern I found free on the internet. You're thinking more along the lines of modifying an existing garment, aren't you?

I think there used to be a modification pattern on the forum somewhere. I know people do this! And the results are very cute
