    Default I made a pug coat!

    A real coat, with a woven outer material, a fleecy lining and a collar :D Pug couture, très chic!

    My model did not like posing indoors ... so we braved the drizzle and went outside:






    She does not like the drizzle either, but she looks fabulous!

    snazzy and great color! OTOH, I hope your winter, when it gets there, is milder than ours has been!

    Very nice job on the coat! The belt is a very nice touch! Like the white "collar", too! Nice work!

    Thanks everyone! It's a bit long over her back, and the belly band could be a bit longer, but since I drew the pattern, I can just amend the pattern!

    I got my idea from, and vaguely followed the instructions, here:
    How-To: Country Gent Tweed Coat | MAKE: Craft

    I didn't print their pattern, I just drew the shape on to some useless baking paper (useless because it is not actually non stick - now it is reborn as pattern paper :) ) based on the length of Talos's back and her girth. I guestimated the front bit, and got lucky with it working the first time - making a paper mock up pattern is a good idea. It took about two and a half hours to do, including making the pattern and doing a paper fitting. Next one will be done in about ninety minutes to two hours - the bias tape edges take a long time, and will always take a long time. They look nice, though, and hemming is a pain in the butt, so it's worth it!

    I am pleased as can be with how nicely it turned out. :)

    Now for a red one, with a waterproof inner layer! (why on earth do I need a rain coat for my pup? This is South Africa! Where's my sunshine? Enough with the flooding and the rain, thank you very much)

    My husband captioned the one picture:

    What a lovely coat you made for Talos. You are multi-talented. I just love Talos' little face.........something about the way she holds her head up and juts her chin out screams Puggie attitude.
