sherlock holmes dog jackets!

Added Dec 31, 2011

Little Rock, Ark...






I made these cute little dog jackets for my two westies, Tripp and Skipp! I think they look like something Sherlock Holmes would wear if he were a dog. I used the jacket pattern from the book “Dogwear” by Mette Syrstad Hoydal. (It’s the one on page 18). I made them from a vintage skirt and tweed shorts.

Material Notes

velcro, vintage skirt, tweed shorts, buttons and lining salvaged from both




Fall, Winter
Garment Type
Preppy, Vintage

    These are so cute!! My dog has a similar item that I also call his Sherlock Holmes jacket. It makes his walks even more entertaining thinking of him as a little sleuth.
