Doggy Style on a Ruff Budget!

This is Foxy, Sebastian's girlfriend.  She comes over through the neighbor's fence every day to see him.  The dress she is modeling is a project I've been meaning to work on for quite some time.  The best thing about it?  It didn't cost me a dime!


If you're crafty like me, I know you have a lot of materials laying around.  Here's what I used:

Jean pocket from an old pair of jeans for the back, leftover fabric from curtains for the skirt, ribbon for the straps, and old shirt fabric for the "tube" part underneath.  I ended up using teal ribbon instead of the brown.  I think either would have worked.

BIG dogs: You can have this dress too.  Just put the pocket on top of a tank and attach the skirt to the tank.


Here's the curtains I made a few months back.  By the way, I got this chic paisley print fabric in a box of cheap remnants in LA.  What a deal!!!  I made them extra long for a romantic look and hung them extra high to elongate the ceiling.



Ok, so back to the doggy dress.  Gather the skirt part with your sewing machine, stitch it to the bottom of the denim pocket, attach the tube underpart from one side of the pocket to the other, and then sew on the ribbon however you'd like the straps to go!  Easy, right?



Sebastian likes it!


And here's a view of the bottom for ya with the tube part showing.  I used stretchy fabric for the tube so it could be easily slipped on and fitted.


That's all for now!

Thanks for posting this! I made one of these dresses today for my little shih tzu and she looks adorable! Instead of a ribbon, I used the cut out waist band of the jeans for the neck strap and used some of the denim leg fabric to make another ruffle!
