Project Description

What are you most proud of? It's just cute. From the 'Lady Bug' decorative button on the back to the 'Lady Bug' decorataive detail button on the hat. It is simply a cute outfit. The cute canine "hat model" in the photo is my trusty pomeranian "Constanzia". She loves to model all of mommies outfits made for other doggies. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have fun!! Be creative.

What you will need

  • Cotton prints (1 for main garment
  • 1 for lining)

Q&A with dottyeb

molleesews asked:
Constanzia is a precious model for your canine creations! Do you have patterns for something simple for a little girl dog about 15 lbs.? I have a black Chiweenie that resembles her Dauschund half.. A little long and low to the ground with a little apple head. I have looked at commercial patterns such as Simplicity but don't care for them. Can you help?
dottyeb answered:
I tend to make my own patterns to fit my own dogs. Then when I get something I like, I take it to the copier store and have it enlarged or reduced to fit other sizes. I also sew by measurements. So I alter patterns to fit the dogs I sew for. I buy commercial patterns and use parts of one to sew to another. Many of the commercial patterns look much different when one uses different fabrics and lots of creativity (i.e. double skirts, lace, bows, etc.) If you will let me know what you are looking for (dress, jogging suit, pants, shirt, night shirt, etc.) I will try to come up with something that is easy to sew and looks Fantastic!! Thanks for your interest.
