Hi! I am making some vests for my cats to wear at my sister's wedding, but I am having a little trouble with sizing. Does anyone have any idea how to make something like this? I have a pattern for a cabbage patch jacket, but the armholes need to be modified and I think the pattern is too small in general. Any help/ideas would be appreciated.

Yeah, I also dont know about sizing for cats.  Perhaps look at sizing sweaters for teacup dogs?  There are millions of patterns for sweaters for dogs.  I know there is a book out there about knitting for dogs, perhaps look at sizing from there.  Sorry I cant help more but

DEFINATELY post pictures.

This site has a pattern for a cat sweater that you might be able to modify:


Note: The website is set up in frames and I can't find a way to link directly to the pattern, so once you are at the site:

Click on the CAT CRAFTS link in the left, blue column

Click on the CAT SWEATER link

They also have a post-op garment and other patterns as well.

If you can modify the pattern they posted, please show us pictures and share your instructions with us!

WHOA holy Swedish site...

OK...I would say what kind of cats?  if they are siamese you need industrial size stretch and legnth in material

A smaller more docile breed (ragdoll, persian) you could be more ornate.

I'd just use a small dog vest pattern and modify it for your animals circumference (i'd leave hole for a harness too!)

Did you try dogfancy and looking up small breed member pages?

Lemme do some research...

Did you check out this site: http://www.sewing.circleofcrafters.com/freepetvestpattern.html

It has a small jacket and dress for a chihuahua. The looks like you can turn it into a vest somehow.

I did make the vests and they turned out pretty good. I will post a picture tonight on the completed projects site Smiley
