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!

Posing for the camera

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

You're giving me all kinds of ideas for little things for our Lhasa Poo.  She's good about wearing clothes.  The hard part is trying to measure her while she bounces around.  Grin

How cute! I love how your dog is so big. She's beautiful in her new pretty top!

Did you have the make the arm area a little wider at the top? I tried making my mom's little puppy a long-sleeved shirt and she couldn't move her legs, the poor thing! I'm still trying to figure it out.
