"My water-resistant doggy coats are well fitted, adjustable, and comfortable," Martha says. "Francesca and Sharkey enjoy dressing up, but they also want to stay dry and warm on cold winter days. Coats should never be bulky or drag on the ground. That is why custom-made is best."
Coated linen lends a sheen to these coats and also makes them water-resistant. A fleece fabric lining makes them warm. The coats are sized for small dogs, about 13 inches in length from neck to tail. The coats shown here are blue with gray trim and orange with brown trim. They're both lined in brown fleece. Use the following templates to cut out linen and fleece: top, underside, and strap. See below for instructions on quilting. Once this step is completed, you should have a quilted body piece, belly strap, and collar. All will have raw edges.
