Ozlin and Rusty’s friend Piggy has the CUTEST doggie jammies. Seriously the cutest things in the world. So of course I decided that Oz needs PJs because the last effort to clothe her Royal Chubness went so very well. /sarcasm
At Wal-Mart I found a pattern for a doggie dinosaur costume for less than $1.00 so of course I had to buy it. Jinx helped me pick out the pink fleece for her and off to work I went! Yes, Jinx was my accomplice in this.
So I got about the business of cutting everything out to find I’d gotten about twice as much fleece as I needed. “I could make a whole second one of these if I wanted to!” I exclaimed without irony. This later would come back to haunt me.
I was pleasantly surprised that it worked up rather quickly and BAM! I was ready to torture the dog. And torture it was.
It was WAY too small. The length from collar to tail was spot on, the width around her deep little chest was so very, very not. I managed to get 3 of her legs in it for this picture, but there was a moment when I was concerned that I might not then be able to get it back off of her. Don’t judge, we’ve all been there.
Miraculously, I had enough fabric to make it all over again.
So I did.
Because I’m a crazy person.
Surely, nearly four extra inches of ease across her back would do the job right. Surely.
They were STILL too tight for her to wear comfortably, but wear them she did. You can’t really appreciate just how much of her butt-fluff was sticking out the back of this thing. It was ridiculous. I’m starting to think that the animals would appreciate it if I stopped trying to make stuff for them. Apparently, I’m really bad at it. But its fun, so they will just have to deal with it.
