What materials did you use? Repurposed child's fleece lined quilted vest

What are you most proud of? Having the idea and seeing it through! It was fun figuring out how to do this, especially the finishing. I ended up using a nice fleece binding on the edges. I also figured out how to make the belly strap from the vest collar.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Go for it! It helps to have a patient dog like Chester who tolerated lots of fittings!

My brother-in-law has a saying - dogs are like potato chips, you can't have jusst one! We also have a ShihTzu Lhasa Apso cross named Berni!

The red fleece coat was purchased and I made the blue one as a warm winter one.
