Hey guys! Well, I had to share this! I am learning to make dog dresses for my Yorkie, Katie Scarlett. Now, I am not a seamstress by any means. I took a beginners sewing class a couple of weeks ago and bought a few supplies. I have sewn many times on paper with my scrapbooking projects, but not much with fabric. It kind of makes me nervous, but I am determined to learn!
I attempted my first dress last week, but lets just say it was pitiful! LOL! It wasn't even wearable! So with lots of help, I gave it a second try. Now, this one I am sharing now is not perfect. I made a few boo boo's, but I am learning. And at least this one is wearable! Tee hee!
I used this McCalls pattern. I chose to use the pattern to make a dress like the pink one shown here on the front...
I purchased this yellow fabric at JoAnn. I love yellow on Katie Scarlett. It looks so good with her darker fur. You'll have to excuse her messy hair. She was such a good girl and played all day long while Mommy sat at her sewing desk.
The back has a d-ring so I can attach a leash on this dress. It also has a fabric bow. I didn't even get to the fabric bow part on the first dress. LOL! So at least I made a little progress with this one. I need to work on keeping my stitches a little straighter, but I'm getting there.
Here is another view of the back...
Here is a view from the side. I wish the dress were a bit longer. I may work on that next time.
She loves her new dressy!
So, what do you guys think? Is it ok? I sure did try! I have to admit...this sewing stuff is addictive!
Have a great night!
