DIY Romper From Button Up Shirt

I made Henry some onesies from men's button up shirts when he was a baby, and they were so cute (shirt one, shirt two)! I remembered that they were on the small side so I started earlier to make one for Claire. I changed it into a cute little romper though! It's perfect for a summer baby girl.
See the pattern, fabric, time, and cost breakdown after the jump!

Pattern: shirt onesie free pattern and tutorial. I altered the bottom pieces to have lots of gathering.
Fabric: women's button up shirt, hand-me-down
Time: 2 hours, I had to alter the pattern and then figure out the construction as I went.
Cost: $.25 for snaps and thread
