I know we usually post about human clothing etc - but I am on a mission to create fabulous creations for our best friends - I have purchased all of Simplicity, McCalls, Butterick and Vogue patterns for animals, so now I am wondering if any of you majorly creative people have designed a tshirt pattern or any other style you would be willing to share/sell to me.

Thanks so much
Lyn

I cant believe no one has posted! You could try thrift stores and use an old one for a pattern. I have never tried T shirts, just rain and winter gear. I have a bassets though so not a breed that is easy to slip on and off. Mine all tie or velcro underneath the belly.

Hi Mislyn,

I have been sewing coats/ t-shirts/ sweaters for the shelter dogs for almost a year. My favorite patters are Simplicity 9520 and 2303. I also use the pattern (multi-sized S - XXS - though not stated, on Simplicity 2318.)

I recycle used clothing, sheets, towels, blankets, etc. to make the garments. I carefully remove the ribbed collars and cuffs and re-attach them to the garments I create. I also embellish by putting pockets and other design elements on the garments.

Since the garments are for dogs in high stress situations, I avoid things such as buttons, which would easily be removed and swallowed. I do use velcro, attached with a satin stitch.

Other patterns I use have come from tracing dog coats my sister has purchased for her chihuahua and then resizing them for the larger dogs.

By adding sleeves, changing sleeve lengths, changing the openings (or creating one), changing the recommended fabric or adding seams, and resizing the patterns, you can make endless variations.

And if you are not sewing for dogs in high stress situations, the embellishments you add can truly make your designs "one of a kind."

I hope you enjoy sewing for our furry friends as much as they will enjoy receiving a nice warm, comfortable garment.
