Dog Coat

I finally finished Becky's doggy coat and just in the nick of time!   I was starting to think winter was winding down only to wake up to a beautiful blanket of white snow outside.

Because I had no pattern for this coat I used Willow's old jacket as a template.  Becky is much thinner so I needed to sew it smaller around her chest and length.

The fabric I used is waterproof and I used a jogging fleece for the lining.  The grey and black ribbon on the sides are actually reflectors for night time and I used velcro on all the panels to make it easier to put the coat on and off.

Becky is the best model - look how fabulous she looks in her new digs!
