Very good instructions. Easy to put together, and of course my dog knows he looks handsome in his new vest. Thank you!

I'd like to give a glowing review but my experience wasn't as good as others. The pattern really didn't fit either my chihuahua or mini poodle, but as the designer says, the pattern is really only a starting point. Overall I found the neck straps to be way too long, and both neck and chest straps were narrow. The instructions say to pull the vest through the straps, but how can you pull all that fabric through a one-inch strap? Still managed to make some cute vests, but they took a bit of re-engineering.

I had never sewn one of these before, but this pattern could not have made it any easier. The end result was a perfect little vest for my daughter's dog!

My daughter entered her two little ones in a contest which supported the humane society and then asked me to make the "costume". I used this pattern and it was so easy. The instructions were very clear, even a non sewer could make this. I made the tutu versions and Zoey and Bella just performed as a lady bug and bumble bee. The fit was perfect and I didn't have to make any adjustm,ents. Everytime you looked at them it would make you smile! I would highly recommend this pattern. Now, I'm off to start making the dog collars.
