This winter is colder than usual. Not really cold compared to most places, but still. The puppers are cold and need clothes. With twelve dogs in house we cannot afford to buy them cute dresses. We got a japanese book on dog clothes, but they are terribly fiddly, with lots of details and small parts, nothing that can be done in a pinch.
The smaller dogs all get 'onesies' from the sleaves of old pullowers. The hand opening is the neck opening, two holes for the legs and ric rac to finish.
Toffee is a lot bigger, so he needs the body of a pullower. Neck through the opening and cut to fit!
It is a boy, so the front has to be shorter to keep it dry :)
He is a very patient boy.
What about a hood?
And no ric rac, being a man and all, but nice tresses to finish it off. We afterwards discovered that he doesn't like red, and was looking very sad. He is now wearing a grey one, Ideefix did like the red one though :) It is not easy to keep all kids happy.
