I made these last night-now I know that it is September and not too cold right now but soon...it will be in the middle of winter.  And well, Stealth is an Italian Greyhound and does not have too much fur, or fat to keep him warm.  Hence, the fleece jammies for Stealth to wear anytime he wants.  He doesn't like it when you first put it on him, but he quickly warms up to the idea when he is, well warm.

This is a Simplicity pattern, #3939 view B

And a cute little butt shot!  lol

awww, he is soooo cute in his pjs!:) i normally don't like when people dress up their dogs but i totally get why greyhounds need winter clothing. They always look so cold when you see them out there, naked:) Your dog looks really happy and warm:)

Very cute! I am going to check out this pattern. I have a chihuahua/min-pin, who is cold all the time.

This turned out great! I have a pug and I make her clothing for winter as well, she is a bald lil thing! I have used old sweaters with great success. She is still the only dog I know with a angora turtle neck doggie sweater! haha, great job!

Lets all go to Jack Taylor's to celebrate!

Absolutely adorable! Both the PJs and Stealth! I also have a minpin who would love to be in these warm jammies!!

Can I ask, how easy are these to put on the dog and do they stay put? I volunteer at a dog rescue that uses kennels and unfortunately donations only stretch to the most basic package at one of the boarding kennels they use. This means concrete kennels, minimal bedding (too much time and money washing large amounts of bedding) and no/minimal heating, which can be a bit hard on the dogs.
Fortunately the rescue have had quite a few coats donated and most dogs have coats to wear but they're odd sizes and some fit better than others. I was hoping to be able to sew the dogs custom sized coats but I've spotted a few photos of greyhound PJs and was contemplating PJs instead. These are fidgetting, overexcited kennel dogs though, who are pleased with any scrap of attention they get, and it's hard enough to get a harness on some of them to walk them, let alone clothing. Are these fussy to put on, do they involve lots of leg lifting and standing still on the dog's behalf?
