Bloomingtails Dog Duds

Shortly after becoming the proud owner of the little fuzzball who became my first fashion model, I started making clothes for her by hand, since I didn't have a sewing lmachine. By 2003 I'd acquired a sewing machine, so I started selling handcrafted small dogs' apparel, which I designed, on eBay. Within a month I sold 22 garments (it was the holiday season). But I had to stop due to a schedule conflict. My dream of becoming a successful designer and seller of dog clothes didn't end then, and on December 25, 2011 I opened my Etsy Shop.

Prior ro marketing dog clothes for the first time, I conducted extensive research on canine body structure and overall fit of their clothing to enable myself to provide my buyers with well-fitting, attractive garments. , and have been rewarded in the positive feedback I've received from happy customers. I specialize in custom orders for pint-sized pooches with back length of up to 18 inches, and each time I receive a custom order I take adequate time to translate the dog's measurements into a viable pattern.

I've enjoyed every minute of Etsy shop ownership - especially the clothing design aspect as well as the wonderful opportunity to meet people from all over the world! Shopping is also enjoyable (who doesn't like to shop?), especially when I find out a seller from whom I've purchased something lives near me. I belong to twenty Etsy Teams and have become a close friend of a satisfied buyer who started purchasing Bloomingtails Dog Duds clothes for her two Chihuahuas in November 2012.

Whenever I can be of assistance, please feel free to Convo me. I love dealing with people and I do everything within my power to make my buyers happy with their purchases.

Have a wonderful day, and thanks for checking Bloomingtails Dog Duds out.

Welcome to my Shop, Bloomingtails Dog Duds! I'll be more than happy to take your custom order. Have a look around, and if you have any questions or wish to place an order, please feel free to Convo me using the Contact link on my Shop page (or click on the Request Custom Order link on the lefthand side of the screen).

I make every effort to produce quality garments for your dog and to communicate effectively with my buyers, as my mission in life is to make people (and their pets) happy. My home is smoke-free, and whenever I handle fabrics my hands are free of scent.

I'm unable to ship any of my items to Italy due to Italian customs' prohibition of importation of sewn items. Sorry!

When you order, please provide your little dog's measurements: back length from shoulder blades to base of tail, chest circumference just behind the front legs, and neck circumference where a collar would go.

If you're unable to place your custom order within a week after I post the Reserved Listing for your order, I will remove the Reserved Listing. Once you inform me that you're all ready to place the order I will post the Reserved Listing again.

Prior to shipping custom orders, I send photos of the completed garment to the buyer for approval, which means I'm more than happy to go to great lengths to make you satisfied with your purchases.

Once you've ordered something, I'd love to have you back, as I often add new styles to my inventory. If you have a question or if you wish to place an order, please feel free to Convo me.

Have a wonderful day, and do come back!
