So a good friend of mine asked for some help making a dog tutu and I, of course, accepted.  The thing is, I've never made a tutu for anyone, let alone a dog.  So, of course I had to practice and who better to pratice on than my Beastie Grrlz, Betty and Delia?  Making the tutus was more time consuming and yet much easier than taking photos of my horrible beasts wearing them.

Delia: What is this thing, mama?  I must bite it.


She got used to it... or at least distracted.  Smiley

Betty: Look how good I am.  I'm sitting!



Delia: No, mama!  I'm the good one.  I'm sitting!



I used the same netting and tulle for each of their tutus, but in different configurations and I assembled each tutu differently to attempt to figure out which is easier/faster and/or better.  Betty's has each double folded layer individually gathered and then sewn to an elastic that fastens with Velcro around her waist.



Delia's has all the layers folded in half, then a channel sewn for the elastic w/ Velcro.  Faster, easier, but doesn't hold it's fluffiness as well.



Finally a question: Is it a catwalk when it's a dog fashion show?



Regardless, I think Tyra and Miss J would approve.

Thanks!  I found the colors on pinterest as inspiration for Delia's upcoming birthday party.  I figured I may was well make them for that party while I'm making them.

Your dogs look so sweet vying for your attention in their adorable tutus! Great job! It makes me think of making one for my dog (even though he is a boy!).

Betty and Delia look beautiful! Smiley You picked great colors for their brindle coats. Maybe next you can make matching frillies for around their ankles? It would be more cuteness than a person could stand. Tongue

Thank you!  I picked colors that look good on them in Collar Cozies and colors that their papa could approve of.  Wink  I think the ankle frillies would end up in little plastic bags about a day after I put them on, if you know what I mean.   Shocked

EEEEPPPPP! So stinking cute! I'm in LOVE!

Thanks!  Look out, Pete; you're next!

Maybe a classy and dapper cummerbund for the small gentleman, instead.  Or to keep with the ballet theme, tights.
