The Doggo Coat
This is my second year in Montréal. What I learned from my last winter here was that woodwork or whittling were not viable options for me. Winters are largely indoors here. The dust and the chips- that doesn't work for me in my living space. So I think its going to be fabrics and leathers for the next little while. This has increasingly dawned on me as Aditi and I worked on The Doggo Coat.
This is a coat for Jasper, my sister in law Pragna's blue heeler. He lives in Calgary and likes the outdoors. So we want something that is warm, waterproof, and doesnt get in the way of his running around.
I used a pattern from Wholefully as a reference, and to help me get measurements from Pragna over in Calgary.
I decided to go with a waxed canvas and leather outer coat and a detachable inner flannel layer, with webbing and metal quick release buckles.
I started with 10 oz duck canvas. Washed so it gets a chance to shrink. Cut it to rough shape. I doubled up the canvas, so the entire top here is a fold.
How it looks like stretched.
