Here is a punk rock tutu and a wee shirtdress i made for my baby! she's a two year old english bulldog, Princess, who is the light of my life!  let's start with the wee shirtdress! i bought a 10/12 girl's shirt, elasticized the waist (she is sooo trim Cheesy) and added some gathered lace before embroidering...enjoy!
best action shot i could get:

embroidery closeup:
it's my new kurt halsey pattern from sublime stitching's artist series! <3

and now for the punk rock tutu! i just measured her waist, cut some elastic that length, and cut 2 strips of pink netty fabric and 2 strips of black tulle.  they are 6, 7, 8, and 9 inches long....to give a layered effect.  i actually think she likes it!! she looks beyond adorable!
laid out:

i hope you like them as much as i liked making them! comments and criticisms welcome!!!

Aw, your bulldog is so cute. And I love her little outfits, especially the little ruffles on the end.

That outfit kicks arse!  Princess looks adorable in it.  I looooove Engrish bullies.  I'd make my dog clothes if he weren't as big as a pony Cheesy
