If you're like us, and you find it unfair that bridesmaid, flower girl, and coordinating fancy dresses only seem to be offered for humans, this is your listing!
How it works:
-Send us the dress and your dog's measurements
-Choose your fasteners: Sash, velcro, or buttons
-We alter the dress from a human dress to a dog dress made to fit your dog
-We send the dress back to you ready for your dog to wear!
After extensive experimentation, we have developed our garment alteration techniques to restructure dresses made for the human form into dresses anatomically fitted for dogs. We were inspired to do this after reading a story in the news about a family who were attacked by their own dog while trying to put him into a Christmas sweater. Human clothes are not made to be worn by dogs!
Dog clothes, on the other hand, allow your dog freedom of movement, comfortable wear, and a dressing process the dog can understand.
Our alterations work well for most wedding party dresses as well as dresses simply made for not-so-furry children that are too cute to pass up even for those of us who only have furry kids in the appropriate size.
What is the appropriate size? We're glad you asked! In addition to our usual measurements (see photos), we recommend that you measure your dog from the top of one shoulder to the top of the other shoulder, across the highest part of the dog's back. The bodice width of the dress you would like altered for your dog should ideally be within two inches of your dog's shoulder-to-shoulder measurement.
If you're not sure whether the dress you have in mind will work, please contact us. We're happy to evaluate the style's suitability for free from pictures of the dress and dog. Higher pricing for strapless, sleeved, and stretchy knit garments reflect the additional time and materials necessary to complete the process.
For dogs not accustomed to wearing harnesses and clothes, we strongly recommend against choosing a style with sleeves or buttons.
