Quick & Dapper Shirt Collar Dog Collar

Easter is just around the corner, and I think even dogs should look dapper for the occasion.  I wanted to dress my dog up, without putting him in a full on Easter Bunny costume (although I did consider it.)  The Shirt Collar Dog Collar is an easy way to make your dog look fancy without too much to do.


  • Collared Shirt
  • Thread
  • ¾ Dog Collar
  1. Pick a shirt that has a neck opening just slightly larger than you dog’s collar. I just brought the collar to the thrift store and made sure it would work.
  2. Cut the collar off the shirt. Get as close to where it is sewn in as possible without cutting into the stitching.  This will minimize unraveling.


  1. Run a seam as close to the edge of the collar without going over as possible. Leave approximately 1” open on either end.  Be careful of collar stays; they will destroy your needle!


  1. Thread your dog collar through the tube you just created. Make sure your dog collar is long enough to have both sides out before your start.




  1. Button the top button shut, clasp the buckle, and enjoy what a handsome gentleman your dog is.
