Bib Dress!!

If you have babies, had babies, know someone with babies...you will want to start collecting bibs after you read up on this tutorial!!  That's right, baby bibs!!


The top of this dress is a baby bib.  Oh, and the yellow ruffled part is actually the end of a pillow case!  


If you know how to sew, you will know how to make this by looking at the pieces in the above picture.  Pretty simple, right??  

Unfortunately, this idea is only for the small dogs.  But seriously, the possibilities are endless with all the adorable bibs out there!  You don't even need an embroidery machine because the bib already has it for you!  

If you make this:
 Make sure you measure your dog for the belt (the green portion) where the bib will end.  Add 3 inches when cutting the belt for the overlapping velcro (or a tie or button or...).  


Measure the length you want the skirt to be on your dog's back starting from where the belt will end.  I was lucky enough to have this yellow pillow case laying around.  I made it 8 inches long.  Ruffle the top edge, and hem the sides in.


Sew the belt on top of the yellow piece and bib piece.


And you're done!!  Seriously!


She looks lovely.


Some of you may have seen the one I did for DollarStoreCrafts.com last week.  After I made one using all items from The Dollar Tree, I knew I had to make an upscale/upcycled one for you guys!

This one (100% from The Dollar Tree) is made of a baby bib and a green tote bag.  And unfortunately, Foxy wasn't around for the photo so Sebastian had to model the dress.  I know...not cool!


You can check out this "Hug Me" dress here.

Hope you enjoyed!!  And as always, if you try this, post it on the Sew DoggyStyle Facebook page for us all to see!

XOXOXOXO,
Erika and Sebastian

Foxy is such a great model! Those are absolutely adorable, and what a great way to put the bibs to use after the babies outgrow them :)
