Dog Coat

As my dog as gotten older, the winters are harder on her. I decided to make her a coat to help with the shivering. I found this great website with lots of tutorials and patterns. Even though I didn't use any specific tutorial on there I did use them for inspiration.
I basically just draped the fleece (that I used as the lining) and cut it into the shape I wanted. I used the fleece to make an identical piece for the outer fabric. I sewed on the velcro that goes around her neck and then bias taped the whole thing together. I used rectangle pieces with velcro and sewed those onto the underside of the coat so it velcros under her belly.
It took an afternoon to make and surprisingly enough she likes to wear it!
