Here are patterns for coats - (toward the bottom) http://www.squidoo.com/retired-racing-greyhounds
I made my dogs' coats out of fleece. To know how much, measure from just behind your dog's ears to as long as you'd like the coat to be - one of my dogs is usually hot, so her's goes just to the top of her tail. The other dog is cold, so hers goes about 4 inches past that. You don't want it too long, or they accidentally pee on it!! (The width is standard, and will be enough for the width of a normal grey.)
The great thing about fleece is that it doesn't fray, so the edges don't *need* to be sewn.
Here are some images of the coat that came with Gorgeous -
|Don't forget to leave extra fabric for the belly flap (bottom middle).|
|Inside view of the neck - elastic inside.|
|I'd actually make the slit for the collar a little bit higher up.|
|I used two fabrics, but it can easily be done with one.|
|Inside view of the 2nd fabric attachment. No elastic on the jammies for comfort.|
I also used snaps instead of velcro on the belly flap, because velcro gets fuzz stuck in it and eventually stops working.
I hope this helps a bit! Without having taken photos as I went, it's hard to put together a tutorial. Hopefully between these, the patterns, and the ordering sites, you'll be able to make some cute doggie wear of your own!!
