Ok, my dog, Tobey, has short hair and gets cold in the winter. He doesn't want the girly clothes in stores. In fall and spring he wears a trenchcoat, but I needed something for winter! I've tried several dog patterns, but they're never quite good enough-the sizes aren't accurate, the legs are too long or short, the neck is huge, etc. THIS is the best pattern I've found. It took me only about 1.5 hours from cutting the pattern out to finishing the first time, which is amazingly fast for me. The second time was even quicker!
Here's the pattern I used-I made the dinosaur one 2 times:

Both are made of fleece, and cost about $10 each for the fabric (not on sale) The only thing I had a problem with is the hood. It doesn't fit. I attempted just making it larger the 2nd time (dino) which didn't work. Next time, I'm going to make a separate turtleneck type piece to put between the hood and neck. It's serged and sewn for ultimate durability!

I made this same pattern for my puppy! I had to make major modifications to it because she has a funny body shape. Good work! Your pup is adorable!

Those are adorable. I have the same problem finding clothes for my chihuahua (who is only 3 lbs). The pet store sells plenty of frilly pink x-tra x-tra smalls but none for the fellas. He looks all snuggly now Smiley

I'm sorry, but I laughed so hard I snorted.   Embarrassed   That has to be the cutest thing I've ever seen.  I didn't even think of SEWING a winter outfit for my babies!  One is 3 lbs and the other is a chunk weighing in at 8 lbs!  They both freeze in the winter.  They have parkas and I thought of knitting or crocheting a sweater.  Where do you get the sewing patterns?  I can't find this stuff at JoAnn or Hobby Lobby (that's all we have here). 

Anyway, you did a great job.  He looks ADORABLE!  Cheesy

Life isn't complete 'til you crochet a uterus for a friend.  Just make sure your fallopian tubes point down and not up! No one needs to lose an eye this way! Wink

I love personal swaps for small stuff (including Hershey Kisses!)! PM me for happy fun rockin' good times!

I actually got this pattern at Wal-Mart, but I'm sure either of your craft stores would have it!
It would be easy to adjust for a tiny dog I think too, as it goes by neck to tail measurement.

OMG!!!  I just got a beagle puppy and we bought him a couple of sweaters, but they don't fit around his chubby belly so well...I was going to look for a pattern to try to make him something that would fit him better...thanks for sharing the pattern that you found.  I'm def going to pick it up and give it a try!!! 

I'm sure that Pete will thank you!!
