Girl Dog Couture

So (don't laugh) I'm making the new frock for Girl Dog.......... going to be impossibly cute and she does love her puppy couture! I'd love to tell you what the fabric is, but I took it out of the happy little Fat Quarter-y sleeve and don't remember.

There is an added degree of difficulty as the directions are written in Japanese. This happens to be a language that I am not particularly savvy with--------- past ordering sushi or a Kirin that is. It's a good thing I never look at the directions anyway. The patterns are compiled on two sides of a sheet of paper, juxtaposed on themselves willy and nilly. If I knew the Japanese phrase for willy or nilly I would have used them to such good advantage there!!!

Anyway, cutting out the pattern pieces was slightly complicated and I had to readjust twice. I think I'm on the right track now.

Work always intervenes in the good stuff.

I cannot wait to see it finished...and I'm cracking up because I just spent yesterday making a dog dress and got LOTS of grief for it!

There's a pet parade on Morganford on Sunday. She would look so cute!
