Refashion: Dog outfit with finished edges

You’ve seen one pink outfit with hearts applique. This is the matching piece made with the other sweatpants leg :p

We recently signed some adoption papers and have been promoted from foster parents to Coco’s forever home people. 🙂 I wanted to commemorate the event with an outfit so i cut out some felt/fleece and pinned it on her pink outfit, then hand sewed around with red thread.

I cut out strips of some knit (you’ve seen it as this asymmetrical skirt) that became the edges of the outfit. I put the right side of the knit facing the wrong side of the outfit. Remember to stretch the knit a little as you sew.

Sewed along the edge with a small zigzag stitch. I let the ends overlap each other.

Flipped the knit material open, folded it over (kinda like bias tape) and made small zig zag stitches to hold it down. On hindsight, i could have done this before attaching it to the outfit.

Pin this down on to the right side of the outfit and sew. I used a zigzag stitch to allow some stretch.

I did this for the bottom, arm holes, and as much of the top as i could.

There is a piece of fabric that is in the way that acts as the “belt” loop. Note to self to plan on finishing the edges before attaching the loop.
