Okay, I know I promised and finally got around to taking the pictures in the new pink dress that I made to match the stroller. I made the bow too but I think I need some pointers on bows. I think I need stiffener, but it does have Swarovski crystals. Here ya go.......

Wow, Sassy is the cutest little thing! Simply, adorable! I love her dress and matching barette. Have you made her clothes before? You did a great job.
Where did you find a pattern? I've tried making *Tink* bows and barettets but they don't hold up very long

This is really odd but I can't see a thing. There is nothing showing up on my computer. I feel like your Sassy is invisible to only me. *sob*

Oh!! I see her now. What a beautiful dog! She doesn't even look real, she's classic. How old is she? How did you get her hair so long?
The photos were definately worth the wait, thanks!!

Oh, she is breathtaking. I cannot imagine a top show dog being any more gorgeous that she is. I particularly love the first picture.

No, actually I have never made Sassy a dress before, although I have sewn for years. This is the very first dress I have ever made for her and the pattern is compliments of Jodi of chloeandj THANKS JODI!!
This is also the first hair bow I have ever made and it was not as easy as they look
I actually sewed an elastic to the back so I could put it over her topknot. I felt like I had 10 thumbs
But it turned out pretty good, and the dress is completely finished (lined) and machine sewed except for the little two inch section that I left open to turn the dress through. I had to hand sew that little portion (underneath.) Also, I did not stitch the skirt onto the top after it was made. I actually made it like a human dress....no after thoughts


Thanks for the compliments!

Hi Linda,
Thank you for the lovely compliment. Sassy will be 3 years old on Dec. 2nd. She has a wonderful coat and it grows very fast. It was touching the floor by her first birthday or shortly after. I do not do anything special for her coat except the fact that I use good products (just switched to CC.) She is gorgeous but her coat is definitely a lot of work. It takes 1 1/2--2 hours to blow dry
after the 1/2 hour it takes me to shampoo, condition, and then after bath (product name.)

Yes, tell little Miss Phoebe that little pink fuzzy thing is a purse, and it has "Princess" embroidered on it. (Target for $4.99 I think.) I'll bet Phoebe has the same one.
A girl can't go out without her accessories
And we wonder how they get so spoiled

Too cute!! Have you taken the stroller out in public? I am too chicken to buy one (although I think it would be very convenient) because I am sure everyone will think I am nuts! Maybe its because we haven't had real kids yet so we have never been out with a stroller.

Do the dresses matt her hair? We are planning to grow out Rosie's hair but we still want her to wear the cute outfits!!!

I actually made the dress a couple of weeks ago, but she had not worn it yet. Yesterday when I got it out and told her she was going to wear it she was so cute. I did not undo the neck I was just going to slip it over her head. She was like a little kid trying to help me put it on her. Then I was trying to velcro the underneath and her hair was getting in the way. So I said to her that I needed to see what I was doing and she would have to turn over. I turned her onto her back and she laid soooo very still while I got the hair out of the way and hooked her little dress. She wore it all day long and way so prissy, she loves pretty things.

AJ...Sassy gets a few tangles where the dress rubs her but not bad. I always make sure I brush her out after I take clothes off of her. That way the tangles do not get too set.

Olga, I took Sassy to my sister-in-laws ranch and brought the stroller, but no we have not been in the stores yet, although I can't wait. The weather has been sooooo hot here that I myself have been a hermit. It is beginning to cool down a little so Sassy and I will be able to venture out. This same stroller comes in blue and is a little cheaper than the pink. If you get serious about purchasing a stroller PM me and I will give you some info on strollers. This particular stroller is very well made and I am very happy with it.

Thanks to everyone who has given us such nice thoughtful compliments. You are all the best and all of the Malts are gorgous.

Pat, you did an exceptional job on the dress. Sassy looks absolutely beautiful. Of course she looks beautiful with or without dress/stroller. She is a gorgeous girl.

I'm not sure how I missed this picture. It shows her more face forward.
