who sews?

Ok--- So in my own pathetic way I have come up with a design for the be all and end all of a small dog body suit that will solve the problem of sand, salt and mud on the paws, legs and belly... easy to put on and take off and is very lightweight. But I can barely sew a hem... have no manufacturing experience...but could market the C%^& out of the garment. Anyone who can sew want to collaborate? 50/50 proposition...

Oooohhh, I hope you get some takers! I'm just not the person that could do it! But, if you come up with an actual pattern that could be purchased, I'd buy!!

Maybe you should post this on one of the quilt threads?! Those women are amazing seamstresses! (I sew buttons on with dental floss!)

I know exacrly what you mean. I made several coats for my DD's dog to wear in Wales. Matilda has no hair.

I just can not come up with a good rain wear that is worth the time to put on and take off. I bought 2 from Muttluks but could never get the size right. http://www.muttluks.com/our_products/muttopiacoats.php

Good Luck
