Are you ready to start the party and forgot just one little thing – to dress up your pooch, so that he can enjoy and have fun, too?! Here is a quick and easy last-minute dog costume idea!
Please think safety when dressing up your dog in homemade pet costumes. The costume should fit neither too tight, so your dog’s movements are not confined, nor too loose, so he does not trip over the costume. Not all dogs are fine with wearing a costume, so if your dog does not like it, take off the costume immediately.
This is the easiest homemade dog costume possible, because all you need is:
Time required: 15 minutes (excluding time required for choosing the T-shirt).
Instructions on how to make dog costume:
The front of the T-shirt goes on the dog’s back, so choose the shirt and decorations on it accordingly.
The easiest way to tailor the shirt is to have your dog standing up right and to put the shirt on the dog. Front paws go through the sleeves and decorations go on the dog’s back. It is likely that your shirt would be too large on your dog, so note any excessive parts and pin them down. You will cut them off later. Leave some space at the bottom of the shirt so your dog can relieve himself and not dirty the costume.
Take off the shirt (after you’ve pinned excessive parts, the shirt should still come off easily). Adjust safety pins as necessary and cut off excessive fabric. Turn your shirt and hand-sew the two parts together. You can even use sewing machine, if you like. Turn back. Your one of homemade pet costumes is ready and now you can get the party started!
