What is it about a dressed-up dog that’s so irresistible? Fortunately, most pups patiently put up with this foolishness—and that just heightens the hilarity. Never has doggie-wear come wilder, wackier, and wittier than these 33 designs from Emmy(R)-nominated TV craft hostess, Cathie Filian. Cathy’s own furry friend, Max, has tested them all out and enthusiastically barked his approval of this funny, irreverent collection.
Best of all, dog-crazy but sewing-challenged humans will appreciate how easy these colorful clothes are to stitch. (Some simply involve embellishing a store-bought costume.) All the projects are based on two easily adjustable basic patterns: one consists of a top and a skirt; the other, a cape. Among the delightfully stylish extras: a fluffy collar, top hat, leg wraps, and more.
The cool canine attire includes such Halloween favorites as a witch, cowgirl, fire patrol dog, and skeleton, plus more unusual designs, like a sea dragon and candy striper. Many reflect the popularity of certain people costumes, such as Elvis, surfer dude, biker babe, and Red Hat Ladies. Some come in pairs, like the bride and groom. Each project is charmingly photographed on an adorable dog, accompanied by laugh-out-loud captions that enhance this one-of-a-kind book’s appeal.
