Grab an old T-shirt you’re not quite ready to part with and turn it into an adorable summer sunsuit for a little boy or girl. This tutorial is incredibly simple (like under an hour simple) and the only materials you need are a T-shirt, thread, scissors, and a sewing machine. I wanted to give my sunsuit a 1920s feel so I made it using a striped T-shirt, but you could really use any kind you want.

DIY Summer Sunsuit from a T-shirt
I had so much fun whipping this up that I made two of them. The first one is below. Start by picking out your T-shirt.
Fold the T-shirt in half. Lay out a tank top and pair of shorts over the fold.
Cut out the outline of the tank top.
Cut out a small section along the fold to create the shorts.
It should look something like this.
Pin around the top and sides of the outfit.
Serge or zig-zag stitch the sides, legs, and shoulder seams together.
Flip right-side-out and stitch along the arm holes and neckline.
