Hey there!
Some time ago a colleague told me, that she had problems to find a raincoat for her dog. She wears a harness and standard raincoat holes didn't fit with it. So I thought of making her a new one.
The design I chose was rather simple (I looked some pictures in Internet) but the most difficult part was making it without the model (the dog was at her home and I only had her measurements) and trying to imagine how she would fill it.
And that's the result!!



Both, my colleague and her dog, were quite satisfied with the green raincoat. So do I!  Smiley

Here some more pics:

That chair helped me when I tried to imagine the raincoat on the dog.



If you want to make a raincoat, this picture can be helpful:



I made the raincoat without the harness hole and my colleague draw me where she wanted it. And I made it:



Finally a close look of the hole and the fastener.






One tip: if you want to sew Velcro, put the Velcro facing the lower side of your sewingmachine. Otherwise you will have problems with the thread tension.

Thanks for reading!

Wow that looks great, especially considering you didn't have the dog there with you.

Awesome job! I need one of these for my doggy :-)

Nice job. I like the way you did the closure at the front - it gives good coverage but allows for full movement of the dogs shoulders and legs.
