Make a Blouse for Bitty Baby


Usually I try to make my doll clothes designs as simple and easy to make as possible, so doll lovers of all skill levels can enjoy making them. But this time I wanted a little more of a challenge and a slightly fancier result. Since this is for a baby doll I wanted it to be cute, as well. The resulting outfit is a lot of fun to make and dress your dolls with.

Since this is a medium baby doll, it still only requires a small amount of fabric. The blouse and skirt in the photo each required less than a fat quarter of fabric. I recommend using small print, cotton calico fabric. The fabrics for the blouse and skirt are not matching, but because they are approximately the same size pattern they coordinate quite nicely. So start looking for two fabrics that you think work well together, in colors that you like seeing with each other, since you will need a small amount of contrasting fabric for the trim at the neck. Buy enough for the skirt, in the contrasting fabric, because I will be writing about the skirt in the near future. A fat quarter of each will suffice.

Materials
1 fat quarter of main color cotton calico fabric
1 fat quarter of contrasting color cotton calico fabric
matching thread
2 small Velcro dots or 2 small snaps for closing
2 fancy buttons for decoration, or you may make button holes and use the buttons to close, eliminating the need for the snaps or Velcro.
