Off the Cuff for Pets

My girls look good, but this isn't easy. I am doing a series on grooming but if you also like to have your furry babies dress the part. There are several designers I recommend. Off the Cuff for Pets is one of the best, out there. Julie has work endless hours to make the perfect outfit for my girls. She has made Bozy the talk of the town. I also couldn't live without one of her fabulous slings to carry them around it.

Julie Lancaster has been a professional seamstress for nearly 40 years. Her field of expertise was designed wedding dresses to Mardi gra costumes though the 1980's until life took a different turn and she moved to the Virgin islands to raise her children.

In 1993 she moved back to the United States to Richmond VA and worked as an executive secretary until 1998. Art has always been a major part of her life such as oils and watercolors and in early 1999 she started her own business as a muralist, company name: Decofx. She has taken numberous classes and syminars in art to make this a very successful career. No job was too big for her because she has always felt the challenge is the key to success and growth.

In 2011 with the passing of her only sister, Julie decided to change her path in life and launched a new business by going back to her roots of clothing design but this time, instead of the two legged creatures she would focus on the four legged one.. after all she had 8 wonderful fur babies as she refers to them.

Her adventure in doggie couture has been very successful. She had over 3000 followers on face book who keep her very busy with custom fit orders, along with partisapating in upscale dog fashion shows in New York City, Del Ray Florida and more where in 2014 won top designer in Delray and this year 2016 won top designer in the New York Pet Fashion show that kicks off Wesmester. She has been the feature designer in Floriday Pet Show and in Virginia along with her accomplishments such as being featured at Dillards for PYGS.. Pugs You Gotta Save.

Julie not only is a top pet couture designer she is very active in helping out pet rescue. For the past few years she has had two auctions each year to help raise funds for private rescue groups and feels very strongly about doing her part. As she says, she would not have her job without the fur babies. Its important to her to help support rescue. This subject is very close to her heart.

Though she has no formal training she invites you to visit her website at or feel free to FRIEND her on Face book where you can follow her adventures into the Doggie Coutoure world and see her many wonderfully listed outfit.
