MAKE IT
1.
 
Measure your dog.
You’ll need two measurements to make thedoggy vest:
For the finished length of the vest (A), measure your dog from theback of its head to the beginning of its tail. A = ____"
For the finished width of the vest (B), measure the distance fromyour dog’s backbone to where you want the finished hem to end(pretty much level with the dog’s belly). B = ____"
2.
 
Make the pattern.
To make the pattern, draw directly on the fabric(folded in half) or on a large sheet of paper, as follows:
Along the fold, draw a rectangle with the length equal to A and thedepth equal to B.
To plot the chest strap, extend the length of the rectangle about 6"(for small dogs) to 12" (for larger dogs), then divide this section intoquarters. Don’t worry about getting this part exactly right. Thesefold-over flaps are designed to adjust to the size of your dog.
Draw two smooth curves and one half circle in the rectangles asshown. Also draw a curve at the opposite corner (the back of thevest).
Near the center of the bottom edge, draw a belly strap that is 3"wide by about 6". The position of this second adjustable strap ispurely guesswork, and you won’t know for sure if it’s in the bestplace until you test the pattern on your dog.
3.
 
Do a test run (optional).
You might want to test the pattern by cut-ting it from some scrap material before you cut into your fleecefabric. Try the test vest on your dog and check the following items.Make any necessary changes to the pattern.
Do the length and width fit well?
Do the chest straps need to be longer or shorter?
Are the belly straps a good length and in the right place?
Does the neck curve need to be adjusted?

In that we will begin with these for pups to get used to wearing vests, this pattern is ideal and can be made of simple fabrics to start with ... thank you :)
