Let’s not forget about the dog! I finished a house coat for daughter #1 (originally intended as a shirt, then a dress, and I managed to sew it to fit as a coat) and I realized our boxer will probably be cold this winter. I made him a double thick fleece coat. The fleece is very thin so it’s just right doubled up. I used a Simplicity pattern for large dogs and ended up having to take about 10 inches off the length of the coat. We were unsure if he would wear it because boxers are notorious for hating things on them (like harness leashes for example), but he likes it! Yay! He looks like a little horse wearing it, it’s so cute and it makes me feel good I made another ‘person’ something they like.
