I Made An Adult Christmas Onesie….

And I love it! This is a pattern by Simplicity (#8520)and 95% of this, I sewed on my serger. The other 5% pertained to sewing the zipper which I used my regular machine for. I really love how this turned out. I found this fabric at my local Jo-Ann Fabrics in the Artsy Doodle section…
