I'm the owner of a male Crn Terrier cross, he's 5 years old, and I wanted to add a pet tuxedo jacket and matching bow tie to his wardrobe. However, this is a frly expensive option, and I'm wondering if anyone here has any advice or tips to making this type of costume a more affordable option.

Alfie's current wardrobe is very basic:

a couple of basic vests

black shorts

a black and white striped sweater

black slacks

black sneakers (not pictured)

Alfie has his own small bed and crate. He's frly good at his obedience trning, which includes going through the "sit" "stay" commands, as well as learning the leash. He's very well behaved around kids, and does well around dogs and other animals.

Alfie is a little bit on the large side, and I think the costume would make him look a little bit silly. But he loves wearing them, and he's been pretty good about keeping his fur neat (though he's getting older, I think he'd keep it pretty clean until he's older).

Any thoughts on how to make this a more affordable option?

I'd like to be able to make the costume myself, and use as few online resources as possible, but of course I'd like to be able to get this done in a reasonable time frame.

My thoughts are to get him to wear the coat to the dog park. Since it's winter right now, it's usually very cold at the park. I can try and find a smaller dog park in the warmer months to work at. I'm hoping to get the cost down to $60, but I know that's pretty low for something like this.

I had an alfie a few years back and he's a great dog. My mom used to sew all my clothes, too. I did everything from a size 6T to a size 2X, so she had many years of experience.

If you sew, you can cut down on fabric by using a stretchy knit fabric for the bow tie. I found a black and white striped pullover at Joann's and used it to make his bow tie. You can get away with smaller pockets on the chest because you won't be wearing the costume. I made a vest for Alfie, too. His only costume, actually.

Good idea on the fabric for the bow tie, but I'm hoping to get this done for a really good deal so I don't have to do that, especially since the costume will be the focal point of his costume for the year.

What would be really cool is if Alfie's costume was custom made, so he could wear it all the time with his own shirt and bow tie. That's probably the ultimate goal, but I know that's going to be way too expensive.

I do have a sewing machine, but I've never really gotten to the point where I can sew something for myself or Alfie. I have a friend who is really good with her sewing machine though, and she's always helping me, so I thought maybe I'd be able to do this by myself. I can probably learn enough to do the vest and bow tie, but the coat is going to be tough.

Alfie is a very large Crn Terrier, so I'm not sure he'll even look normal in the costume. And he already looks like a tuxedo dog, so I'm afrd that even if he looks good, the whole costume will just look silly.

I think the easiest way would probably be to just buy him a costume. This way I know it's going to be nice, and it will give me something to work with to make something for myself or Alfie. If I make something for myself, that's when I'll know the quality is there.

As for the fabric, you could get something cheap and get it hemmed and have a tlor cut it down to size for a little less. I would look for something like this, only in a different color.

If you do sew it yourself, you can have the fabric tlored, so you wouldn't have to buy it all cut out at once.

You could probably do it, but as much as I like to sew, I think it would be a lot more work than buying it all together. If you sew for yourself, you can get a pattern and buy all the fabric at once. That way you'll have something already cut out. I'm sure you could find something in the clearance section at a fabric store. I think that's what I would have to do.
