Last year, after the death of my parents long time neighbour, I was given several full length wool skirts. Though beautiful, and at one time very expensive, no one was interested in them as skirts, therefore they became dog coats for Luna (Bouvier), Brinkley (Doxie-??), and Odie (Min-Pin X Chihuahua).
I used a McCall pattern, modified slightly for the various versions. I made Luna one jacket, Brinkley three, and Odie two.
