How big is your pup? I am happy to trace my own patterns and mail them to you, but that will only be so helpful if they're close in size. Delia is about 65 pounds and I can take measurements later on. She's long legged and deep chested, but not as bulky as a lot of pibbles.

She's very much like my Ginger when she was at her prime (and which is why every time I see a pic of her, I think nose kisses - my Ginger loved nose kisses).  Ginger was about 60-65 lbs then, very muscular, with deep chest, but quite slim waist.

Troy is about 50-55 lbs, quite a small lab, with long legs, and moderate chest, and slim waist - well, a bit less so during the winter.  On problem I had with other coats is that they are too loose around the neck and the coat tends to shift to the side as he trots along.

Hmmm. It sounds like my pattern would be a bit too big, especially in the neck, but if you would like to try it/have it as a base from which to modify, I can trace and send it to you.The one's I've made from it are a bit loose around the neck, but I think that is perhaps due to the original having a knit/fleece collar and mine having woven collars. When I make another hopefully I'll remember to make the collar with the knit and stretch it a bit when sewing it to the bodice.

It's OK - I was thinking on your coat this morning and I realized that Jim bought bright orange hunting jackets a few years ago - one seems to fit Troy well, and they have size adjustment straps at the waist, and a zipper on the back - I may try to make a pattern from that like you did.

Ah ha! Sounds like a good plan! This pattern has no waist straps at all, so that might've worked against you anyway.
