Spring time doggie dress


Summer is almost here! If we had four seasons in the Philippines, it’ll probably be around spring time now. Of course, Shantee the Dog Fashionista is into it too 🙂

I actually made this spring time doggie dress for Shantee a few years back. She wore it for a short television segment on GMA7’s Zooperstars with child actress Sabrina Man (not sure if the show is still running now though). But hey, it’s spring time! Since I haven’t posted this dress on Dog Fashionista anyway, I thought this would be the best time to bring it out once again…

I got the textile and buttons from my mom’s old stocks. Shantee’s small, so she doesn’t really need much cloth for a dress. The upper part is made of satin, while the skirt a ribbed, stretchy print. Not sure what that is called, but I’ve seem this cloth in some skirts for humans.

The cut of the upper body is pretty simple. A darker pink satin is attached with a Velcro around Shantee’s tummy, a V-cut lighter pink satin around her neck clasped with a button. I thought Velcro is best to use for the part on her tummy, that way she can get fat and still fit it her dress! 😀

Although I sometimes buy dresses for Shantee (there are affordable ones but still of high quality), every once in a while I prefer to make one for her. I’m no couture, but it’s good therapy after a week of deadlines at work. Kind of like arts and crafts! So no, before anybody asks, I do not sell dog clothes. I just like making my spotlight-happy Shih Tzu princess pretty and even more spotlight-happy! 😛
