I figured I would post some pictures of my pups in some of their coats and sweaters from Chantal. Cassie is the only one who really likes clothes, so she has a lot. Dugan gets depressed and Brady is not a huge fan, so they don't wear them too often.

LOL! Never pass up a chance to post pics of our cute dogs huh Karen???

Adding a half inch is probably what mine comes out to be, by measuring loosely. If you think about it, adding a half inch or even an inch to the girth really isn't that much.

For the coats, I always add 1/2 inch to the neck and chest.

Now, I realize that I need to play dress up and get pictures of Cassie in some other of her coats and sweaters. She is at grandmom's for the week, so it will have to wait until she comes home.

Oh my...they are ADORABLE...every last one of them!

My girls need sweaters....going to measure and order them...thanks to the precise instructions.

One last question Linda, the first red cable knit and the last (pictures) yellow cable knit are the same right? I really like the looks of that one, but which sweater is your favorite?

Opps...one more question! My daughter has a min pin with a cropped tail, would I get him the tail loop too or just a straight one. Not sure a loop would stay on.

Thanks so much to all for the info and the great pictures.

OMG! I didn't realize how many items you bought! You are almost as nutty as I am I didn't know Dugan got the DANNY sweater. Scudder models that sweater on her website

I love all your choices, just not for my Tom Boy!! LOL

Linda, you know I have plenty more, just not in my pictures at the moment . Actually, the Danny sweater belonged to Bacca. When the power was out and we moved into Mom, Dugan wore it home one day so he could be warm in our house. Bacca HATES clothes, so I think Dugan has inherited it now .

One other thing about measuring the length. If you over measure, the sweater will just bunch a little around the body. If you under measure, it is too short. So I guess I am a little generous when measuring.

I missed your post! You must have posted at the same time I did.

I wouldn't get the tail strap for a cropped tail. If you notice her sweaters have a semi circle cut out for the tail. Look at the brown sweater I posted laying flat. You can see the cut out there. The brown sweater is the same as the yellow green one. Here it is: Mine is more this color. the picture I took made it look yellow.

http://www.royalfifi.net/index.php?m...roducts_id=876

This sweater is more expensive because it is a complicated one to make. It comes in a lighter weight wool and a bulkier wool. I prefer the bulkier wool as it holds it shape longer. I still like the thinner wool for something not too warm for the pups. Makes a great house sweater. The yellow/green sweater I posted is the lighter wool. The choc brown one is the bulkier wool.

This is the red one: I had her do it in Alpaca wool instead of Angora. Alpaca is so thick and soft. I just love it, but not as many colors to choose from.

http://www.royalfifi.net/index.php?m...roducts_id=725

Here is what the sweater comes out looking like in the Alpaca wool. Much more bulky http://www.royalfifi.net/index.php?m...roducts_id=728

So which one is my favorite? Gosh, I love them all! I'm so torn. On different days I like different ones better. I hated the stripped one on Scudder at first, but now I love it and ordered 3 more. I love the DANNY. I also love the BRUNO, and TICO. I guess this is my favorite in the bulky wool. I love the cables and design. This is the same style as the brown and yellow/green one.

My daughter thinks I'm the meanest fur mom if I take Timmy outside wearing this. I just laugh when I look at him and doesn't everyone need a good laugh? Come to think of it he wouldn't look at me in any of the pictures I took. I took these with my iPhone so the quality kind of stinks. So I need opinions.
1- Do I add sleeves to the front?
2- Should I cut the loops and make it just strings?
