A "Doggies" Outfit For Preschool

Something special for sweet Kayla!

I made this little outfit for my friend's little girl last September (2015) when she started preschool at 3 years old. 

I used some fabrics from my stash and a purchased knit collared shirt.  I hand embroidered a little dog in simple stem stitch, satin stitch, and little granitos. I outlined the collar in a red running stitch and changed out the buttons (stitched with red floss).

Doggy hand embroidery:  a Pinterest find.
No pattern was used for the skirt but I hemmed the bottom with ribbon on the right side of the fabric.

The little dog button is from a collection that must be over 70 years old that was given to me by a friend. 
The buttons were her mother's.

I really loved seeing this on Kayla when I would see her with her classmates on the playground.  It has gotten too small for her now.  I guess I will just have to get busy and make another outfit! 

Blessings to all who read this blog! 


  1. What fun! Kayla is getting used to bespoke clothing very early!

  2. Oh, that embroidery is so cute! I have some kitten fabric that all of my daughters are crazy for... a matched set with that fabric would be perfect!
