Hi everybody. Does any of you have any patterns for dog wear? Anything, really? Outfit, accessories? I would like to experiment a little, for instance something when it's really, really cold.
I am not a skilled or talented designer, I just want to try.

Dog coats are fairly easy and fun, especially if you leave off the collars and extras. You should be able to find Burda patterns easily, since we have them everywhere here in the U.S. I found this group online:

More pet patterns, if you are able to purchase them in Europe:

McCall's has a lot of pet accessories patterns for dogs, be sure to scroll through the different pages.

More here at Butterick: http://www.butterick.com/list/crafts/page-1
They're owned by the same parent company (Vogue Patterns)

Ooohhh... a quick Google and I found this:

Thanks, Karlin and waldor, I knew there were some hard core dog fashion experts out there :)
I will look at it, and MAYBE if my results are good show it here ;)

Oh yes, please do! I love Show & Tell. I am often inspired by others' ideas.

Well, I haven't quite got into dog wear, yet, but I did make myself a small handbag. It's got plastic pockets for pictures inside. I made them, so you can change pictures at will. Of course I chose Molly and Éowyn.
It isn't the greatest handicraft made, lots of flaws and unskilled sewing, but it's a start :)
