Custom Dog Coats
« on: December 07, 2006, 04:03:08 AM »
Hey, so Ive been making these coats for people from the dog park, and decided to offer them here :) Presently I have 2 orders that I'm working on, but I can make them relatively fast as long as I have the time. They are nylon outer, fleece inner. I make them to the measurements of your dog, and can make any modifications you want because I sketch out the pattern when I get your measurements. The ones Ive made so far had chest pieces, and were attached with a nylon strap and buckle. The sight hound ones have a snood neck piece, while any other dog just has a short fleece piece. Heres some photos of examples, I'll upload more as I branch out and do them for different breeds (most of my orders have been IG coats, so they are all essentially identical). (ignore the funky dates on some pictures, lol. My camera batteries had died and the date wasnt set)

It would be 27 for that size. There is a LOT of work involved, the same coats retail for 60 at all the places Ive seen, and I've sold them for 30 on ebay.. I havent made a coat for bigger then a 30 lb dog yet, but It wouldnt be any different. I would just have to alter my price for the larger coats accordingly for the extra fabric. So far Ive made them for from a 8 lb dog to a 30 lb dog.

I *may* be interested but it would be for a dog that measures 29 inches from neck to base of tail....I don't know if it would be worth it for the amount of work you'd have to do!

Its not too much more work for a bigger size, because they are all the same amount of pieces and I have to sketch the pattern out for each anyway. But It would cost more, because of the extra fabric...
