 Smiley Hi guys ,
   
          I finally got a chance to make a Dress for My Lil Girl ( Coffy ....she is not named after the Hot beverage , But the Hot Pam Grier character ) ... any way up till now she has been growing way to fast to try and make her clothes , and Ive been dying to make her a bunch of cute Lil dresses .... so here is the first one .. its not perfect as it was my first attempt at this type of thing .....I think I need to add some shoulder ties to prevent it from slipping when she runs around all crazy ! lol ... any way she helped pick the fabric she wanted something extra girl and pink because she HATES  being mistaken for a boy ... the fabric even says her nick name " Woman " ! lol and it speaks out against breast cancer  Grin......

so on to the picks ..MODS  feel free to move this if there is a better board for it











she is dancing with her Daddy



Thanks again for looking Id love to hear any feedback you might have .. and Coffy would love to hear compliments about how pretty her is  Wink.....

Thanks again for looking and if anyone has any tips on making clothes for "fur children " please let me know .......

Have a great day / night
Jayne

That's so cute!
Theres a free pattern on here: http://www.sewing.circleofcrafters.com/freepetvestpattern.html
I use the vest pattern (it's easier to fasten around the neck and belly), and use the skirt part from the dress Smiley

ETA: the sites been down for a while, but hopefully it should be back up soon, so keep checking.
Also there's a pet category on craftster http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?board=169.0

Your girl is so beautiful! I love the color of her coat.  I think it's great she loves to help you pick out the fabric for her beautiful dress!

Love it. My little girl (who's not little at all) could do with a nice pink dress too I think, I might have to get on to that!

Nice work as usual. Your baby is beautiful. What breed?

 I actually used the Made by Rae Spring Ruffle top tute recently to make a dress for my little one. (EnglishBull) It's hard to find patterns to fit her chest
 I think I should have used some velcro in it's making so it would be easier to put on . I have also used the larger version of the Itty Bitty dress pattern putting the skirt on the back/top of her only. She has since outgrown that pattern.
My suggestion for straps(from experience) would be to have them come to a V in the middle of he chest.

SO Adorable! Coffy looks beautiful in her dress.

I think shoulder straps are a great idea. I look forward to seeing more doggy designs from you! Smiley
