Dog Formal Wear

Shantee’s Julia Cocktail Dress


It’s been weeks since the Bow & Wow Benefit Dinner for CARA, but I still can’t get over how pretty Shantee’s dress was!

She was actually supposed to wear her signature Dog Fashionista princess gown, but Shantee’s bulging tummy didn’t quite agree 😛 The little doggie model unfortunately gained a lot of weight… The velcro in the tummy part just wouldn’t close! I was about to resort to drastic measures (such as making emergency adjustments to the tummy area just so it would fit), but luckily, Doodles Paw Couture came through! 🙂 Read more

Shantee’s Dog Fashionista princess gown


Ever since I put up this blog in June 2007, I’ve been getting email messages asking me for price lists. Apparently, a lot think that I’m selling dog clothes 😛 I’m not, and I just like dressing up my pooch. And yep, I do make most of my dogs’ clothes, but nothing really extravagant.

I’ve always wanted to make a really nice gown for Shantee, but I honestly don’t have enough patience for the details. The most detailed dress I’ve probably ever done for Shantee was her dog wedding gown, but after that, the most I made for her are dresses that don’t really have much details. I don’t really know much about sewing techniques. After all, I’m just doing this for fun.

Luckily, our generous friends from Doodles Paw Couture (DPC) made Shantee’s “dream” of having a real doggie gown a reality!

I’m no fashion designer, but this gown fits The Dog Fashionista’s personality perfectly, wouldn’t you say? 😀 Read more

Dog wedding gown


Last Thursday, Shantee “got married” to Peter, our old hamster, for the Sunday television episode of Rated K on ABS-CBN. Shantee and Peter’s unique friendship was one of their main stories, and my pets took part in the pet blessing ceremony they had for their Valentines’ Day special.

Of course, I made Shantee a gown. I couldn’t let her “walk down the aisle” an under-dressed bride! Read more
