It came to our attention that Nikki's clothes were getting rather ragged and well worn. Dressing her up is not a vanity thing for her, she has very short hair, and a bald belly, so she really needs to wear clothes in the winter, especially at night when she is in her kennel. A couple years ago when we made her some outfits we had a really nice pattern, but of course it is no where to be found now. When we were in town we stopped and got a new pattern for her, Simplicity 2755. This pattern doesn't sew up quite as neatly as it could. Dancer and I sewed the two outfits out of fleece and we had to make a few adjustments to the way it went together. When we sew it again we will make a few alterations on fitting. I think part of the problem is that dog breeds come in so many different shapes - long legs, short legs, thin bodies, husky bodies, and so on that it is hard to have one pattern fit all those different shapes.
