Nancy Zieman's 30-Minute Doll Clothes

I am so excited to be part of Nancy Zieman's 30-Minute Doll Clothes blog tour. 
I decided to make the Birthday Party Trio on page 2.

The first thing you will want to do is choose your fabrics and trims. I love the contrast of color. I chose pink and green. Riley Blake Designs has these wonderful chevrons, ombre solids and ombre dots. They also have beautiful bright colors in ribbons to match all their basics.
Instead of the bow on the side of the skirt I made a rose out of a 2 1/2" strip of the ombre solid. I cut the strip 2 1/2" x 22". Press wrong sides together along the long edge of the strip. Round the corners by trimming off the square edge. This will take away the excess bulk on the corners. Using a double threaded needle, do a running stitch about 1/4" from the raw edges.  

Once you have finished your running stitch, start to roll the strip inwards to create your rose. 

Sew some stitches back and forth across the back to keep the rose in the desired shape.…
