Pattern dog overalls universal. It fits dogs, whose proportions are close to "square." These are Yorkshire terriers, schnauzers, poodles, toy terriers, etc. For such rocks, the pattern is simply download. For rocks with a more stretched body shape, the pattern will need to be adjusted a bit (the instructions describe in detail how to do this).
You need only one measure – body length. This is the distance from the edge of the base of the tail to the edge of the collar (in the particular case 47 cm.).
The product consists of four parts:
- side piece – 2 pcs .;
- lower insert for chest and abdomen – 1 pc .;
- gate – 1 pc.
Preparation of materials and tools
At this stage it is necessary to stock up with everything necessary for work:
- the main fabric (with these measurements need a cut of 120 cm * 150 cm (L * W));
- fabric for warm lining (can be made removable and used as a poddeva);
- chalk or pencil for cutting;
- clasp on the collar (button or button);
- lavsan threads;
- an elastic band – 2 m. (it is possible to choose a rubber band, it stretches less in a sock);
- zipper along the length of the back (tractor fastener has wear-resistant qualities);
- cotton batting;
When choosing a fabric, it is better to stop at a light fabric with a water-repellent effect. A good option is a membrane material, the bottom layer of which consists of a loose perforated film glued to the base. To save time on seams, it is advisable to choose a fabric whose edge is not frayed, not mohrit.
As the lining is better to use smooth materials (satin, twill, etc.). You should not use the net, it can mess up and damage the hair, causing discomfort in the dog.
Manufacturing and joining basic parts
Transferring the pattern to the material. To do this, the fabric must be folded in half inside out. Place the sample over the side. In order to avoid distortion of the finished product, it is necessary that the back line runs parallel to the fractional thread of the fabric.
The bottom inset is applied with a dotted line along the fold. Templates are pinned or tied. Outline the pattern outlined with chalk, taking into account small allowances (0.5 cm – 1 cm) on the seams. When the pattern is transferred to the fabric, we estimate it visually and cut it out.
For fidelity, it is desirable to initially sweep the product manually to try it on a pet. Start to sew with the sides. The legs are sewn together first. The darts on the back are laid in the center, strung up and down for strength (dart length is 7 cm). Next, we join the sides by sewing on the bottom insert, which closes the belly and chest.
The prepared parts are ground on a type by a linen seam (used for sewing bed linen, sliders, etc.).
It is most suitable because:
- edges do not need additional processing;
- eliminates tangling of wool.
Independently we take measurements for a pattern of dog overalls:
Insert zip fastener with placket
We sew a zipper along the back line. It is necessary to take into account that it is more convenient if the movement of the lightning slider is carried out from the tail to the neck. Under the zipper, of course, need a strap. Cut it out of the base material, a loose batting is inserted inside the slat. If you need a completely waterproof option, you can make a valve. He will exclude hit of moisture in the middle of overalls in rainy weather.
Planck performs the following functions:
- gives the product rigidity;
- facilitates fastening;
- helps to avoid discomfort and friction on the skin of the back.
Next, cut a rectangular strip. Its size is 10 cm * back length + 2-3 cm margin (to go to the collar and hide the fastener edge). We fold the finished strip along, but not in the middle, but with a shift (it is necessary that the lower part is 2 cm wider than the upper part). I mean, the lower part is 6 cm, the upper part is 4 cm. Such a gap will allow you to wrap a zipper on the wrong side, hiding its edges and batting. This will also solve the problem of "wool-collecting".
Lightning should be shorter than the strip on both sides. The part of the strap that protrudes, put the edge to the edge over the seamy side of the boargum along the back and sew. Then, folded face up, sew the zipper itself and the edge. The seam is turned inward and stitched with an additional anchoring seam at the edge of the zipper. The second part of the lock is sewn in the same way, only without a slat.
If a dog is being walked in a collar, then in a jumpsuit a hole is provided for a leash. If the dog walks with a harness, then it is more acceptable to make a long bar.
Accession to a collar rack stand
Stand-up collar is cut out similar to the plank. This is a rectangle, the width of which is 10 cm, the length is equal to the length of the opening of the neck. In the end, the width of the rack will be 4 cm. Inside the collar is fixed with a special adhesive gasket. Further, the part folds out twice inside out, the shorter edges are stitched together. After the collar turns out and, by indenting 0.5 cm, a line is laid along the seams on the front side. If the pet’s neck volume is much smaller than the neck opening, then it is necessary to make tucks, or to fabric the fabric to the required size.
The edge of the armhole and the edge of the collar are folded on their sides and ground off. The collar is turned out, the seam is fixed with an additional line and is processed by overlock. A button / button is sewn on one edge of the collar, and a loop of elastic or fabric / button is sewn on the other.
The bottom of the leg is twisted inwards twice, an elastic band is inserted into the lapel. If you need to adjust the width of the bottom of the leg according to the situation, you can replace the elastic with a narrow backstage with a cord or a cuff with a clip. You can also process the edges of the elastic oblique bake.
Cut for the tail is trimmed with piping and elastic, so that the jumpsuit is as close as possible to the body of the dog. A dog needs one more obligatory hole – for pipka, so that it can properly meet its needs (it is cut and processed in this way).
Editing pattern to size
If the length of the pet’s back is more or less than 47 cm, it is enough to make a simple calculation:
– the length of the back of your pet;
M is the number in percent that is set in the scaling window in the MSExcel file.
If = 50 cm, then M (according to calculations) = 50 * 100 47 = 106.4
It is advisable to initially sew a "trial" jumpsuit with an old duvet cover or sheets. This will insure you against damage to the base material, help identify errors in the pattern, because each dog is unique, it is impossible to create a universal template.
Possible problems at the cutting stage
If your pet is not quite standard sizes, the following nuances may arise:
- wide, long, short or narrow front leg;
- the bottom inset hangs;
- discrepancy of the step length and the step seam.
For the correction of the pattern, additional individual measurements are taken. The dog must be put in a standing position. A tape measure does not stretch, otherwise, the dog will be uncomfortable and closely in the dress.
Additional individual measurements:
- neck half (g);
- chest half-grip (PDG);
- half hip (POB);
- lateral length (DB) – measured along the side of the abdomen between the thigh and shoulder.
Overalls tight in the abdomen and chest
Calculate the height of the side (WB):
WB = (2 * POG – insert width) *
The result is a value that is added along the entire length of the back. This type of pattern correction is fraught with the expansion of the neck. To reduce it to the required size, it will be necessary to attach the armhole fabric along the width or use the tucks located on the level with the trachea.
Overalls short on each side
We retreat several centimeters from the front and back leg notch and draw two perpendicular lines from the extreme points of the belly line upwards. On them we cut the template, push the sides so that the distance between the notches for the paws is equal to the length of the side line and a couple of centimeters (margin).
Together with the length of the side panels, the back length will increase. This can be corrected by issuing recesses at the site of the incision. In the future, they will allow the pet to feel freer in overalls.
Narrow legging in overalls
You can expand the leg’s leg if you add equal lengths along the seam line B on both sides.
Calculate the increase (P):
P = (2 * PHB – the length of the seam B) *
Next, we shift the pattern of the side piece a width of П back and add centimeters to the front edge of the leg.
Finishing pre-fitting jumpsuit
All corrections and corrections have been made, now we need to re-sew the test specimen from the fabric, which is not a pity. Trying on, we focus on the length of the leg, if necessary, adjust. Still need to finally determine the cutouts for the tail and genitals. They are schematically applied with a marker on a test sample before fitting. All amendments are duplicated on the pattern.
As a result, you can sew a jumpsuit with your own hands, in which your pet will be comfortable to sit, walk, jump, run and play. It will be exclusive, not serial, and it will be beneficial to single out your pet from the crowd.
