It seems that you are interested in wearing your dog some clothes. If you consider buying or making clothes for your puppy using human clothes, read this article to find everything you need.
Step 1: Measure Your Dog
Using the measuring tape, measure your dog from his neck to the beginning of his tail. Take note of his measurement as this will be an important part of creating the t-shirt (obviously).
If you don’t have a measuring tape, you can instead lay the shirt over your dog’s back. Fold the bottom of the shirt where you want the shirt to end. For example, if you want it longer, you can fold it on the spot right before his tail begins. If you want it cropped shorter, you can fold it mid-belly. The choice is yours. Mark where you folded the shirt using a fabric marker or pencil.
Step 4: Cut the Sleeves
Next, cut the sleeves of your dog, keeping the height of your dog in mind. For example, if your dog has short legs, then cut the sleeves shorter. If he has longer legs, you don’t have to cut as much.
Make a collar.
You should consider the dog’s size when making dog clothes. The pattern should be cut slightly larger than your dog’s. To make a collar, cut the sleeves of an old sweater or t-shirt. The cuff should be at least 2 inches wider than the waist. Before you start making DIY dog clothes, measure your dog.
