Cutesy girly dress for a cutesy girly dog

When the family brought Shantee shopping in Tiendesitas two weeks ago, I was feeling a bit disheartened that I won’t be able to buy Shantee as many dog clothes as I wanted—each piece was just expensive. The Disco Dog shirt I got didn’t really come cheap, you know.

But look here, Shantee has a new purple girly dog dress!

Would you believe I made that? Really, I did. I honestly couldn’t believe I could come up with a dog dress like that myself. But yes, this dog dress was made by hand and with love! (Unfortunately, my mom’s sewing machine needed to undergo major repairs) 😛

I was actually planning to make a Santa-type of dress for Shantee using some red velvet cloth I had lying around. But I wasn’t feeling too confident about my measuring and sewing skills, so I made use of some cheap purple clothe to practice on first. Turns out, it wasn’t too hard—except for the sewing part, it would have been way easier and less time-consuming if I had a sewing machine.

I made use of the pattern I saw in the HGTV website which featured step-by-step instructions on how to make a dog dress, but modified it a bit. Give it a try—it definitely beats having to buy expensive dog clothes any day!
