I had this really pretty floral print fabric that I used back in high school for pajama pants. I've only had scraps left, and I decided that was time to dress my dog. The answer? A breezy, spring-appropriate peasant top. For my dog.
I'm pretty sure my boyfriend thinks I'm certifiably insane. The thing I'm most excited about is the fact that I didn't use a pattern, and I've never seen another top like this. Hooray!

The zipper is what is causing the ripple on the back. I don't mind so much, but next time I'm going to use a separating zipper. My friend says this is her "I'm going to do something disgusting to your carpet while you sleep" look, but she wagged her tail when I picked it up to put it on her, then sat and waited for me to do it. I figured if she hated it, she would have tucked tail and run.
Standing. A bit awkward here, but it fits pretty loosely and the fabric drapes well.

Tell me what you think! I know it was kind of rigged, but now that I have the basic idea of how to do it, I might make her another one.
You are also welcome to tell me that I'm out of my mind for making a peasant blouse for my dog. LOL
