30 Minute Doll Clothes Nancy Zieman Joan Hinds

Raising two boys, sewing doll clothes wasn’t on Nancy’s radar. So when Joan Hinds  approached her on the topic of sewing doll clothes as a Sewing With Nancy topic, Nancy had to stop and think. Wow, she hadn’t thought of that before!

Joan’s take on the topic is to make simple styles in 30 minutes! That’s our kind of sewing! Recording the series was great fun, with Nancy’s adorable granddaughters as the prime reason. Plus, Nancy knew that many of you are in the doll clothes mode too, which was reflected in the interest shown in this series. 

The second episode of 30-Minute Doll Clothes is this week’s online Sewing With Nancy feature. Watch online or on Public TV.

Playtime Top

This show begins with a playtime ensemble. Playtime is imagination time. Your little girl and her doll will go on all sorts of adventures, while you supply the wardrobe.

School Days

A little girl can get her doll dressed for the first day of school in a coordinating red, white, and blue outfit. The vest, top, and skirt each take 30 minutes or less to stitch. The sewing is made simple with flat construction tips.

Blog Bonus: Since the recording of this series, Joan continues to make doll clothes. This update on the School Days outfit has a ribbon accent. Joan stitched ribbon ½″ above the hemline. But before stitching, use paper-backed fusible web to attach the ribbon to the fabric. The top is from the Birthday Party Trio, see last week’s blog post. The overlay is eliminated, the top edge is turned under, and the ribbon is attached to the top edge.

Jiffy Jumper

There were three criteria for doll clothes in Nancy’s book: cute, easy to make, and durable! This Jiffy Jumper fits all the benchmarks with ease. Flat construction, fusing, and serging are components for success.
