You will need measurements of the length of the back, neck, chest and waist circumference, as well as the length of the limbs behind and in front. 2. Create a pattern on a paper basis. 3. Cut the pattern from the paper backing. 4. Transfer the pattern to the fabric base. In this case, remember the stock on the seams (one - two centimeters). 5. Carry out the mesh of the product along the lines of the schwas. 6. Try it on a dog. 7. Finish the tailoring of the product. 8. Treate the seams finally. 9.

Useful tips for tailoring clothes for the Chihuahua with their own hands For beginner needlewomen, the first item for their favorite pet can be a coverall. It is best to use the simplest pattern. A ready-made pattern, which can be found in magazines and the Internet, should be transferred to the fabric, taking into account the allowances for seams. If you are planning to transfer the drawing to a product, then it must be done on the underside of the overalls. To ensure that the consumption of the fabric is not too large, the elements of the pattern should be decomposed, starting from the largest and ending with the smallest. Pair elements are best connected with pinsduring cutting, so that they do not move, and the fabric does not slip at the same time. Sewing overalls is best accompanied by creating a lining so that the product can hold a certain shape, and the pet could appreciate all the softness of the lining fabric. Heat insulation from the synthepone or the lining should be cut by analogy with the main product. Before I do the fitting of the product on mypet, make sure once again that from it you took out all the pins and needles. When you try the fitting, pay attention to such moments: the product should sit on the chihuahua rather spaciously, comfortably, without hitting the sleeves in the armpits and groin, but the collar should not be excessively loose. Remember that you need to do another fitting after all the errors found after the first fitting have been removed. If for the product you have chosen a fabric that is prone to shrinkage, then we advise you to wash and dry it before you start the sewing. Now, in more detail, we will dwell on how to sew a chihuahua jumpsuit with our own hands. 1. Taking as a basis the proposed pattern, you need to "fit" it to the size of your pet. 2. Next, you should lay out the pattern on the fabric base, circling it with a shallow one, remembering the allowances for seams and a hem. If you plan to attach a zip to the back of the product for the animal, then leave there about one centimeter to the allowance for the seams. It is also possible to use buttons and stickers. It is necessary to leave such volume of a fabric that it lain down overlapping a strip two - five centimeters on width. Here everything will depend on the size of your dog. 3. Puncture the paired elements with pins, thus ensuring the static nature of the fabric. We make a pattern of lining. 4. If the product for your pet is too loose, then you can use the strap in the waist area. 5. Finally, all defects must be corrected. Remember that the overalls must necessarily have warming in the area of the back and chest, but sleeves may not be warmed to ensure freedom of movements of the Chihuahua. In the end, all the seams that are swollen must be treated with a machine stitch.
