At the time I made these we didn’t have a dog, and the one’s I made re-shooting the pics for this tutorial was too small for the dog we have now. I suppose I should have measured before deciding which size to make, huh? So, the old pic will have to do. Anyway, on with the tutorial. It’s super simple and really quick. I made this one in about twenty minutes, and that was while watching football. Here goes:
The patterns can be downloaded here:
Large / Small
The large pattern was too big to scan the whole thing, so I made small black circles on the pattern pieces so that once you cut everything out, you can simply match up the circles and tape the pattern pieces together.
1) Cut out all the pattern pieces. Be sure to cut the holes for the front legs.
2) With right sides together and using a 1/4″ seam allowance, stitch together the chest, each of the back legs, front legs, and the short sides of the collar.
3) With the WRONG side of the collar facing the RIGHT side of the of the neckline and matching the seams, stitch the collar to the pjs. (I accidentally did it backwards here, so just ignore that)
4) With RIGHT sides together and the front leg seams toward the center of the chest, stitch the front legs to the pjs.
Tiip: The leg holes are very small so it will be easier to stitch them from the inside.
