Well, you're in luck! I got an e-mail from Simplicity showing their new Steampunk offerings (which are actually pretty amazing), and I became interested in the designers who create these patterns. I stumbled across this old pattern from Arkivestry, a team of historical clothing designers. I think it's pretty adorable at first glance, and I'm seriously considering making my Henry a little cat-sized poet blouse. (Not really.) But look at the illustration:
On the right there? People, that is a DOG CORSET. Now I'm sure it isn't intended that you actually tightlace your doggy into a corset. And yes, it's fastened with Velcro in the front. And you know I support the right of humans to do all sorts of weird things to their own bodies. But a corset? On a poor defenseless pupster? It just seems wrong.
Further proof of dog corsetry (helpful green highlighting is mine):
Dog doublets, dog bonnets, lacy dog blouses. I can get behind all of these things. But I draw the line at the corset. Perhaps because it's a garment that's so fetishized. It's like putting your dog into a girdle costume. Wrong, wrong, wrong.
Do you agree? Or do you think it's harmless fun? Let's hear it!
