Description

A raincoat for my dog, Fuwawa, so she can still enjoy walking when it’s raining.

The raincoat has hood that can be hidden in the wide collar and a cute little cape. It has velcro closures on the front (under) side, you can also use snap buttons if you want. The hem is finished with bias binding to mimic the cape.

The sleeves also have velcro closure, I suppose it is useful for rather heavy rain so the splashes won’t enter the sleeves. But Fuwawa doesn’t like walking in heavy rain so I don’t think I won’t be using this feature. Anyway, sewing tiny set-in sleeves was such a challenge! I’m glad that it worked fine.

    This little raincoat is just awesome! Fuwawa is absolutely adorable! I watched the little video on your blog of Fuwawa running around and just love it! I want a furry baby just like Fuwawa.

    Very cleaver. You have inspired me my pet needs one of these! Yes the dogs don’t like to walk in rain, but with a good coat it sure helps. Really good stuff.
