DIY Tutorial:- The Dior Rose

 Embellishing any garment or special occasion dress can be easy using this fantastic rose.

The Dior Rose:

  1. Template- cut three oval/football shapes that have points at the end.  They should be one smaller than the other.  My first one is 7.5" x 5.5" then each other is smaller than that.  (click here for the patterns.)
  2. Make sure to put the templates on the true bias.
  3. Cut out three of each size.
  4. Fold in half and sew two rows of gathering stitches along the raw edges.  (about 1/4" and 1/8")
  5. Begin gathering the pieces, smallest first as you roll it into a bud, and move to the next two, medium, than large.
  6. Using a needle and thread, sew the center of the small bud and pull up other sizes around the bud as you stitch in place and whipstitch.
  7. Three petals make one rose.
  8. Finish off with a circle along the bottom.
