“Ghost of Christmas Past” Yuletide dog dress

When my dad told me that we’ll be going to two family parties on Christmas Eve and another one on Christmas Day, and that Marc and I could bring Shantee along in these family reunions, we figured that she should be dressed up for the occasion.

I made Shantee a red velvet dress with gold trimmings, which strongly reminded me of the Ghost of Christmas Past from the movie, “A Christmas Carol,” whenever she wears it. But my husband Marc calls it “Shantee’s Harry Potter Dress.”

The pattern I used for this dress is the exact same one as the dog dress pattern I used on Shantee’s purple checkered dog dress. The accents were a bit complicated—I made two holly leaves out of green velvet, and the red fruits were made out of five red Swarovski crystals bundled up together to form a “flower.” I also put simple gold bead work on the back area.

I’m proud of this dog dress! See? Even Shantee’s happy! She really likes wearing this dress. I suppose it makes her feel pretty 🙂
