A coat I made for my boyfriend's dog. Vet's orders ... this pup has super short fur, and we live in Minnesota. 'Nuff said.

It's green 'cuz his name is Connor and he's therefore supposedly Irish. The lining is dark green faux fur; the outside is green wool ... yes, actual wool. It'll be a care nightmare, but at least it's warm. Pattern = Butterick 4885, view C, minus the pockets (http://www.butterick.com/item/B4885.htm).

Am I the only one who finds the fake fur slightly unsettling?  Roll Eyes

Awww, what a cutie! And the jacket's nice, too. Wink

I actually can hardly see the fake fur. In the photo, it almost looks like the wool is cut-out and you're seeing his own fur.

Very snazzy jacket. Nice work!

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

Ooo!  Normally I'm not so into clothes for pets, but I really like that jacket! And if one's going to dress one's bet, why not in a stylish faux fur collar?  Real fur would be unsettling (and perhaps chewed).
