Some breads have strange proportions! Dachshunds have small tummies and v-e-r-y long backs – the staff group are the opposite- big chests and short middles. I can make just about any size or shape jumper or coat (Dog Christmas outfit) – all I need is a few measurements – and an idea of your colour choice.
Whether you have in mind what you would like – or you would just like to explore what is possible and find out some costs – I am always happy to answer your questions. When we have finalized the design you would like – and worked out the size you need – I will email you some colour choices. I will need payment before I start the work – and I will keep you up to date with progress photos. Most commissions are completed in about 10 days – it depends on what else I have in work – but I will let you know before I start. I don’t charge extra for commission work as such – the prices depend on the finished size of the garment and the fabric used (Dog Christmas outfit).
For a jumper or coat
– I will need the length down the dog’s back – from the back of the neck to wherever you want the garment to finish
– the measurement around the chest – just behind the legs
– and it always helps to have the tummy measurement too
For a collar
I will need an neck measurement
– and if it’s for a Martingale – I will need a head measurement. Remember to include any ‘big ears’ – spaniels have a particular issue with this
If you are looking for a belly band or season pants
I will need a measurement just in front of their hip bones.
Disabled wear like drag bags and full-body vest and pants will need special attention to make sure everything is as comfortable as possible for the dog so I will need extra measurements – we need to be touch all through the process.
