Skills: Cutting fabric from a pattern // sewing with laminate fabric using a walking foot using bias tape for binding // sewing through multiple layers of laminate and felt // attaching a magnetic snap

Step 1 -  Cutting:

  • Download the free pattern
  • Cut out PDF pattern and place on fabric. 
  • Cut two (2) of main fabric and two (2) of lining fabric.
  • Cut a 4” x 2” rectangle from both main and lining fabrics.


Step 2 - Sew and assemble:

  • Pin and sew center seam (rights sides together) for both the main and lining jacket pattern.
  • Top stitch ¼” on each side of seam.
  • Add binding to the edge of the main jacket edge.  Clip the curved seam allowances of the binding tape so to lay flat.

  • Pin the 4” x 2” rectangle on the main jacket pattern. Place at center long ways to the back seam. On the long ends, sew 1” down, across and up to form a box. Add this rectangle piece to the lining to make the jacket reversible.

  • With wrong sides together, lay the main and lining fabric on top of each other.  Spray 505 Spray Adhesive to help the fabrics from moving while sewing.
  • Fold over the binding tape encasing both the main and lining fabric to finish off the edge. 
  • Place and sew on magnetic fasteners on the over-lapping neck flaps of the jacket.


Step 3 - Belting and Strap Buckle:

  • Measure and cut the belting between 25”- 30”.
  • Slide the belting through the sewn tab on jacket.

Follow the instruction to add the buckle to belting. Pre-measure around the dog’s waist to ensure the proper fit.
