Whether you want to dress up your dog for a Halloween costume or for everyday wear, know that you don’t have to pay full price for these clothes. Dog clothes purchased from the store or a mall’s boutique are often expensive and not worth the amount. Fortunately, you can make clothes to resemble the ones found at puppypartyplace.com or another online retailer. You don’t even have to have amazing sewing skills or invest in a ton of time to accomplish this project. Simply rely on these tips and suggestions to see your project from start to finish.
The beauty of making your own canine clothes is you can customize them to fit your pet. Whip out your measuring tape and draw it across your dog’s shoulder to his rear end before proceeding to measure around his mid-section. Also measure the circumference of his neck and legs. Jot these numbers down and add an inch or a few to each figure if your dog is especially furry. Then you can think about what fabrics to use. Cotton, flannel, spandex, lycra, and burlap are very practical options since they are durable, comfy, and can go in the washing machine and dryer. You don’t have to go to the fabric store to buy these items. Look around your house for leg warmers, old sweaters, Halloween costumes, and other articles of clothing to modify into doggie-wear. You may be tempted to consider embellishments, but first consider the hazards they may pose. Buttons and snaps can be dangerous if your pet bites on them and chokes. Zippers can catch on your doggie’s fur and may be difficult and painful to remove. It’s recommended that you use Velcro if you want to fasten pieces together. Feel free to add pockets if you want make the clothing more decorative.
Next on your agenda is to begin sewing. You can draw up your own design, or you can use a pattern found at fabric stores and in catalogs. Another resource is the Internet, which allows you to download PDFs of clothing patterns. Some of these are even free. For these patterns, you’ll need a sewing machine along with other standard tools and materials. For other ideas for clothing, visit puppypartyplace.com.
