DIY Upcycled Dog Cape




Instructions:
You will need TWO shirt collars.  That's right!  One for the Outside and one for the lining.  If cape is left blank (with no lightning), it could be reversible!!!  Also, I found the bigger the shirt was (as in, adult size shirts, not kids), the better the cape looked.  You get the pleating and also a bigger collar with the adult-sized shirt collars.








But Sebastian wanted a tie.  You know, like real superhero capes have.  Just make sure to remove the buttons if you decide to go with the tie. 



Did I mention we made this cape in black too?  We rounded the corners on this one.


And we used a striped black and purple collar shirt we found at the thrift store (Which you can kind of see in this last photo) as the interior.


The only thing missing from this cape is an attachment to a harness or something.  It wants to fall to the side when Sebastian flies through the air (#dogproblems).  You could easily add a buttonhole on top through both layers for leash access to the harness too.  I would imagine the cape would stay on better with that method too.  

XOXOXOXOXO,
Erika and Sebastian
