Description

My parents-not-in-law’s dog, Millie, needed a little jacket to keep her dry in the winter on the way to her café outings, of which she has several a week. I was happy to oblige for it is hard to resist giving Miss Millie whatever she wants. She might actually need a new jacket soon; as you can see, this one’s a little small for her. I had measured her before making the jacket but her girth had increased by the time it was completed- NOTHING to do with café snacking, I’m sure!

Material Notes

Glazed chintz cotton toile-de-juoy, red-and-white gingham bias binding, Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.

Difficulty

Novice

    This is super cute! It’s more like a dog-cape or a saddle than a coat—perfect idea for me to make all sorts of Halloween costumes for the cutie! And it seems really simple too, which I love!

    Ooh I have a ruby King Charles Cavalier too! His name is Elliott. I’ll have to make him a coat so I can post a photo of him sometime too.

    Did you get the pattern for this coat from somewhere or did you just make it up yourself?

    My mom has a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel (brown and black) and his name is Gus, he has a Christmas coat that he wears, but he is only a puppy still. I love the little coat you made…. maybe i would whip one up for him, and post it so you can see!
