Here are some better shots of the gear:
I had just enough of this material, which I could never find another use for, to make this. It's not really a print I find super appealing, but it's perfect with her hat. The button came from the big button box.
Delia's collar is also made entirely from materials on-hand. WOO!
These are closer to what "real life" looks like.
This was taken about 1/10th of a second before Betty dashed off to chase a bird off of the deck. And then about two minutes later she tried to get the hat off. If her attitude about her Halloween costume taught me anything, it was that she loves wearing outfits in front of friends or at Papa's office where people are cooing at her and fawning over her, but only tolerates them a little for her very own mama at home.
Delia insists that this is how the pups are wearing them these days, but I think she's just letting the weight of the buckle on her regular collar turn her pretty outfit backwards.
