Remember the Trace & Stitch Dress I refashioned for my trip to Asheville a few months ago? Here…let me jog your memory.
I dug the dress, but just couldn’t come up with a good way to save the jacket part…until a surprisingly chilly day when my little Douglas didn’t want to go outside, that is!
First, I cut off one of the sleeves!
Then, I cut a hole through both sides of the sleeve that was big enough for Dougie’s legs to fit through.
THEN, I trimmed off the part of the sleeve that was too long for my pup. :)
Just look at my comfy cozy pooch now! :)
This sleeve trick is great for Dachshunds, as they’re usually too long for normal dog sweaters. Normal dog clothes tend to make them look like little puppy strippers wearing midriff-bearing crop tops :/
Luckily, Dougie gets to stay classy AND warm during this cold snap! ;)
