-Onesie, I used a long sleeve white onesie from Wal-Mart. I looked for a thrifted one, but couldn't find the right size with long sleeves at my local thrift store.
-Lace, I used a 2.5" wide lace trim. You can use different kinds of lace for this. However, I gathered my lace down the center so I used a symmetrical lace.
-Gathering foot (not required)
One of my favorite sewing things is my gathering foot. If you don't have a gathering foot, you can do this the "manual" way. I set my machine to it's longest stitch and tightest setting.
After gathering, I had around 7" of gathered lace.
Pin to the neckline of your onesie
I pinned the lace so that it start and ends right under the shoulder overlaps.

Some more tips on picking out lace: because it's going to be around your baby's neck, don't pick a really stiff lace. You don't want it to be very scratchy, it might annoy your baby :)
Thanks to Megan over at MeganMakesCute for the pictures of her baby, Abbey, in the lace onesie! The tutu Abbey is wearing is a one layer variation of my petticoat tutu, you can find the full tutorial for the two layer tutu here. For the baby version, I simple skipped the bottom layer of tulle!
