Chris explains the difficulties of working with dogs.

Here was my chance to create the ultimate fit and flare dress for a dream housewife, complete with blonde bubble-flip hairdo and ruffled apron. Oh, and don't forget the pearls! 

We went for it, leaving out no detail, including Christine sewing 100 yards of blue trim on to the edge of a pink petticoat for sheer perfection. We dressed Ralphie as a super cute loaf of bread ("Wonder Dog"), and  Maria was thrilled with the result, which was a Mad Men/Mad Fashion collision of vintage meets fabulous! With the wig, she hesitated a little until we redid it to be slightly smaller and more perky...head to toe she looked like a perfectly frosted cake. You could just hear that perky ‘50s music playing in the background.
