    Default Clothing Patterns

    I'm sure this has been posted before, forgive me, but I really don't want to go through all the old threads if I don't have to!

    I've been looking all over the place for a good bulldog clothing pattern. All I can find is pre-made, very expensive clothing. Does anyone have a pattern they like? It doesn't have to be free, although that would be nice I have tried making my own but our Bear isn't very cooperative. I end up with shredded scraps of fabric! I'm teaching myself to crochet and I know the basics of knitting, so ANY pattern would be nice. Though, I'm sooo much better at sewing.

    Thanks Guys!

    I have NO idea if anyone on here has made clothes for their bullies?!! I'm going to tag some members to see if they can help...

    I haven't seen any ready-made patterns for English bulldog coats, but have seen many tutorials on how to construct a pattern. As bulldogs come in all sizes, I would guess you might need to adjust the pattern anyway? I've seen several websites where they suggest you use an old jacket, which seems like a great idea as winter coat fabrics tend to be expensive. Here are some patterns where I think you would just need to take measures of your dog and then you can make the pattern based on the info provided.

    I wish I knew of a pattern that existed. I know a couple of people that make bulldog sweaters but that's it. I checked out Etsy and I didn't see anything there either. There's bulldog sweaters/jackets there, just do a search on Etsy using "english bulldog clothes".

    I have discovered that @JeannieCO is quite talented at making aluminum foil items. Perhaps she can design something for you.................?

    Great ideas from @cefe13 for patterns.
