To date, there are a lot ofsmall dogs that are absolutely not adapted to our so often changing weather and harsh climate. That's why it should be noted that clothing for our little dogs is not a whim, but an important necessity. Many people think why you need a coveralls or other warm clothes for a breed like Yorkie, if nature has already endowed them with such a rich wool cover that should save the dog in bad weather. But to a great regret it is not so. In fact, it turns out that dogs, as well as people, are freezing, feeling enormous discomfort. Even a long and fluffy coat can not protect the Yorkshire terrier from wind and low temperatures. Walking a pet in bad weather, you risk chilling your little friend. And hypothermia can lead to many sad consequences. To treat your pet is a painstaking task, requiring a lot of effort, attention and resources. Therefore, not every landlord will want to treat a york. Because of these reasons, overalls are the ideal and the most relevant solution for Yorkshire terriers. Even without taking into account the fashion trends, it is worth agreeing that clothing for Yorkes is really a must. And if your four-legged friend has become a member of the family by right and you really need his health, you probably already thought about getting a couple of warm things for your pet. But how to be if you do not have the opportunity to buy a jersey suit or you are looking for a friend for something unique and unusual, then the best solution is to sew a jumpsuit for yourself with your own hands. While making jumpsuits for Yorkshire terrier, you should consider a number of features:
- It is necessary to treat with utmost careselection of material for the manufacture of overalls. Know that for yorkshirts, due to their long fur, knitted things are absolutely not suitable. For them, you need to choose a material with other characteristics;
- also it is worth paying attention to the type of fastener of the product. Again, due to the long wool yorkshirts, zippers and Velcro will not fit. Such a dog is better to choose clothes on buttons;
- choose clothes for dogs, as well as for people, taking into account gender. Girls are better suited clothes with a closed tummy.
Measurements necessary to work on a coverall for a dog, it is necessary to remove necessarily. You will need several values:
- the length of the back is york. Measure from the withers to the tail;
- the size of the neck of your little friend;
- the volume of the trunk, which is measured under the front legs of the animal.
And so, to make a pattern of overalls on your puppy, you need to take the scheme presented below, for the basis. Now we need to calculate the length of the sidessquares on the diagram. To do this, you need to measure the length of the york from the location of the collar to its tail. And after that it is necessary to divide the obtained number by 8. This value will be equal to the sides of the squares on the diagram. Next, we need to draw a grid of squares with the obtained length of the sides and accurately transfer our pattern to it. Cut out the resulting pattern, attach to yourdog and correct if anything does not match. Suppose that the pattern was slightly short, then it can be cut in half in the middle and extended to the desired length. Next, you need to cut the inner pants separately on the paws. To do this, take the second sheet of paper and transfer to it our working pattern and draw the trousers. In order not to get confused, immediately mark, where will be before, and where back. Cut out the resulting pattern. Now we need to start building the patternstraps (the middle, covering the pusiko). Transfer the working pattern once again to the paper, measure the distance from the neck to the bottom along the leg. The width of the bar will correspond to the distance between the front and rear legs. To the resulting values, add 3 cm to the free fit and seams. Now all the details are ready. But here it is recommended (especially if you sew the first time), try the pattern obtained first on any old fabric, and only then start sewing.
