  3. How to make a dog sweater: first cut off the sleeves then turn the sweater inside out. Slip the bodice on your dog and then, if you have a cooperative pooch, baste or pin the darts and fit the bodice directly to your dog’s size. Take it off the dog and sew the darts and seams then cut out the seam allowances. Try it on your dog as the fitting progresses. Don’t forget to leave space for peeing if it is a male dog. When you’re satisfied with the size, you can add on a collar, buttons and remnants to decorate. I made a few and I find it is much simpler than knitting. Another option is to wash the sweater in hot water to felt it the proceed as explained above. This way, you don’t have to finish the seams as they do not unravel.
