Any puppy that starts out her fashion career in a sock has mad skills.

Look at that little foldy ear!  Doesn’t it look like she’s wearing a cowl?

America’s sweetheart in her patriotic wear.

This is the fancy dress I made her.  She questioned my choice of the fabric on the skirt trim, but I assured her it looked cute.

If anyone can make a Minion onesie look cute, it is this little shy cutie.

Polka dots are Dorito’s color!  And a coordinating bag to boot.

Every girl needs comfy yet stylish jammies.

Technically not an outfit, but come on!  Jabba the Hutt, or as we call it, Jabba the Mat.

Always the perfect accessory, a well fitted bed is a must.

Straight outta Compton:  Spicy Dorito in an animal print hoodie.  Come hither, mortals!

Using your sewing time wisely

Why, oh why do I feel compelled to dress this puppy?  Is it because of her adorable little face?  Those gigantic ears?  The fact that she’s only six inches tall?

I was trolling around on Etsy and found the mother lode of patterns for tiny little dog clothes.  The pattern company is called Sofi & Friends, this pattern is called the Sweet Pea dress.  I used Moda Scrumptious fabric, the same fabric I used for that cute little baby quilt with the dresses.  Little Dorito is so tiny that I only needed teeny little pieces.

She still has plenty of room to grow in this, and it is the size xx-small.

The dress is fully lined.  Only the best for my little diva.  The patterns are beautifully drafted and accurate. There are lots of great details, like the d-ring so the dress can also work as a harness.  I have no idea where or why she will wear this dress.  But when she does, she will look breathtaking.  Now for some examples of her modeling poses…

She acted like she had been frozen in place when I put it on her.  I didn’t even match up the velcro because I was scrambling to get my camera.  We obviously need to work on her catwalk.
