Dalhart, Texas, ...
Okay, this is about my 9 month old dachshund and her up coming need for clothes. Taffy loves to be outdoors but in the winter when it is below freezing she needs some extra warmth. I searched for hours the other day to no avail for a dog shirt pattern online. All I came up with was people doing crummy how to’s about putting theirs together but did not give the pattern they were using or cruddy YouTube videos on the patterns they wanted you to buy.
I decided to just draft her her own pattern for a shirt, hay it’s what I do for any thing else, right? This is my first attempt at making Miss Thing her very own dogie shirt, not bad for my first try! I used one of my old shirts that I was not going to ever wear again to practice on since I did not want to mess up any nice fabric.
Since she is a dachshund her shirt is longer in the torso than most shirts found in stores and it has a tiny waist too. She loved the extra attention I gave her and did not want me to take her shirt off.
My next attempt at a pattern it will be one with higher arms holes, I guess they are called “muscle shirts”, I don’t know.
