This weekend I went to a thrift store and found lots of adorable baby clothes for really cheap. I'm thinking I can try to reconstruct them into dog outfits. The ones I bought are all dresses and are sleeveless.

Does anyone have any experience with this? Any tips? I did a search but couldn't find much.

I'm thinking I'll try the dress on her, measure and sew to fit.

Wow, I cant believe no one has responded.  Well anyways in my opinion its very easy to convert baby clothes to dog outfits.  Ive done it before for my pekingese when I first adopted him.  I bascially put the clothes on him, eye balled it to see where the adjustments needed to be made, then took the clothes off him and cut/adjusted & sewed the clothes to fit him.  I did manage to find a tutorial on line just now to show you, maybe it can help you more then my short explaination.  Heres the link:

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.
