Chihuahua Outfit - Made from Leggings

This is Dory... :)
She is a Chihuahua/Rat Terrier mix and she loves to wear clothes!
I decided to recycle an old pair of leggings I don't wear anymore into a cute shirt for her.



Cut the leg off of a pair of leggings about the
 size of the dog's body

Next cut two slits on the sides for the arms

Cut off two more pieces from the legging for the sleeves
and cut the sides to make a long piece of fabric

Zig-zag sew the arm piece making a clean hem on both arms

Sew the arm piece to the slit on the body-
 right sides together

Fold over the edge of the arm pieces

Sew the seam underneath

How the seam looks finished

Zig-Zag sew the bottom. 
I liked how the spandex made it curly.

All Done and ready for modeling!


I love that dog....

Love it!! So she really doesn't mind being "shirted" huh? Oscar goes bananas when I put a shirt or even a harness on him.
So cute!!

Aww so cute! My dog doesn't enjoy having clothes on her as much as yours. But I dress her up anyway sometimes, lol! Just to mess with her a little bit. :p

And I love how you recycle and come up with ideas like this. Nicely done!
