SIMPLY DELIGHTFUL Shirt Dress pattern for your little dog! Have fun sewing this Shirt Dress for your little best friend. Put your signature on the shirt by choosing an adorable combination of pink & black fabric or a soft & petite floral. The possibilities are endless!
Pattern includes two Shirt Dress styles with easy to read instructions and photos for both. Also included are cutting layouts, a notions list & necessary fabric yardage. Shirt A has two contrasting fabrics with buttons, ribbon and a bottom ruffle. Shirt B has two contrasting fabrics with bottom ruffle. Both Shirt Dresses are interfaced for added stability and use Velcro closures on the chest/belly area. The Shirt Dresses are top stitched giving a quality feel and structure to the garment and have an optional D-Ring.
Selecting the proper size pattern is important so please read the following carefully. When selecting a pattern choose the one that will give your dog the best overall fit. Girth is most important then the Neck and then Length.

I began my lifelong journey into creating and designing when I was six years old. I would take squares of fabric and sew them onto my dolls to create doll clothes. At age 14 my Mother taught me how to make and sew my own clothes. I have always loved sewing and being creative! As an adult I have worked in the Interior Design field for 20+ years and kept sewing as a hobby. After my kids grew and left home the house seemed empty and that's when Sofi came into my life. She is a little 5 1/2 pound Yorkie and the sewing hobby expanded into making clothes for her. It's been so much fun creating and designing clothing for her and her friends (family pets)! From the insistence of my family I have opened shop and am now selling the patterns I've created. I hope the patterns inspire you as much as Sofi has inspired me! Happy Sewing!
