You guys!!!! We have laughed about this for days and I am DYING to share with you the costumes that we made for our 2 Boston’s Wallace and Gertie. (If you are unfamiliar with Tight Pants, you will most definitely want to watch this video.)
You might remember that we are planning having a tight pants Halloween themed parade during our trick or treating adventures.
…so of course the dogs needed a Tight Pants costume too.
To make this costume we used:
A thrifted T shirt (striped of course)
A hair scrunchie. Made out of hair.
Liquid Stitch (or a sewing machine)
Start by cutting the front piece off of your T shirt and fold it in 1/2 hot dog style.
I eyeballed a dog shirt pattern and cut out this shape, making sure to preserve that awesome mock turtleneckiness of the collar.
Then I Liquid Stitched the front piece of the shirt together.
The elastic was tied onto the scrunchie in 2 spots to make a little hat.
And the feet were cut off of the tights.
Then we laughed and bribed the pups to sit still long enough that I could get a picture.
FYI, Mayor Grimble just declared these pups the hippest in the land!
