Easy dog dress pattern. Cut a few rectangles, sew them together and make a dress for your dog.
I like to dress up my dog for special occasions, but the cost of the clothes can get really expensive. I prefer to sew my own things, it's cheaper and I have way more fun.
I can choose pretty fabrics and get crazy with the design. I mostly make my dog's stuff from scraps. This way, I don't even have to spend money on the fabric.
There are many different dresses you can make. I'll start by showing you how to make a very easy one sewing only rectangles. It's really fast and it'll make your dog look adorable.
You can use the same idea for sewing other dresses, get creative with it and pretty soon you'll have more dresses that you know what to do with.
Your dog dress patterns will be only rectangles. Here are the measurements for each one.
|Piece Name||How many to cut||Width||Length|
|Body||2||half of your dog's chest width||half of the body's length|
|Ties||4||4"||divide chest width measurement by 4 and add 3"|
|Skirt||1||chest width||half of the body's length|
Fold your body rectangles in half along the width. Draw a small curve on the top edge and cut it off.
Fold your tie rectangles lengthwise in half. Sew one long side and one short side.
Sew a piece of Velcro on the closed edge of each rectangle.
Pin it to the bottom edge of one body piece. Leave 3/8" to each side. The skirt's right side should be facing the body's right side.
Pin the ties and ribbons to the right side of the body piece that doesn't have the skirt. Two of the ties should be 3/8" above the bottom edge. The two other ones go a few inches above. Make sure that the velcros match.
The ribbons go on the top edge.
Sew them together along the edge with a 3/8" seam allowance. Leave a small hole on one of the sides for turning.
Ta da! You can use the same dog dress pattern for making other styles.
