With St. Patrick’s Day just around the corner, I thought I’d see if I could whip up an appropriate outfit for each of my Cavaliers. The first outfit tackled was for our puppy, Ginger. I purchased a baby’s bib at the 99 cents store. The bib says, “This is me being patient.”
I then rummaged through my remnant stash for a swatch that matched to add as a ruffle to the bottom of the bib. Matching double fold bias tape was used to make the ties.
Now, it was Bekah’s turn. Since Bekah is older, I thought I’d like to make an outfit without a ruffle. I was not quite sure where to begin. So, I borrowed the idea for the pattern from the bib and sketched it out using Bekah’s measurements for her neck and abdomen. To give it some body, I decided to make it reversible which simply means cutting two pieces and sewing them together. Ties were made using matching double-fold bias tape strips to secure the dress at her tummy. I did not want to use snaps or buttons so I used Velcro squares as fasteners.
I am so happy that this creation turned out so well. Now, my fur babies are ready for St. Patrick’s Day.
