Dog shirt patterns
Hello everybody! How are you? I hope you are fine. We are very happy because after many days working we can finally share with you these dog shirt patterns that I wanted to do a long time ago, and many times you have asked me.
It is perfect for male puppies, gives them a very formal and elegant look.
This will be the first of several shirt designs I plan to do. It will be the first and most simple for those who need to make a shirt but the easiest way possible.
Later I will create other shirt designs with more details and complexity, more formal, suitable for ceremonies and special days.
So let’s start!
FIRST OF ALL A LITTLE CLARIFICATION:
Basically there are two types of collars. The simplest, made from only one piece for example the polo’s collars. And also there are those that have two parts: the collar and the stand (a strip of fabric that supports the collar)
In this design, as you can see, the collar is made from one piece, without the part of the stand, the collar is attached directly to the body shirt, that’s because I say it’s a simpler collar.
Here some pictures of Tara with her shirt on an outdoor photo shoot…

Look how well it sees from behind.
SUGGESTIONS AND TIPS:
With these patterns you can make a formal shirt for wedding but you can also make more casual shirts like Hawaiian style or square.
In the case that you need a shirt to wear a tie or bow tie although this design goes without stand you can use it alike.
When sewing the collar it is recommended to place a thick fabric or interfacing between the two pieces of fabric to make it more rigid.
ABOUT THE FABRICS:
For more formal shirts I recommend to use light or neutral plain colors or with very thin stripe, and for more casual shirts flowers or larger squares.
You can add accesories such as pockets, shoulder strap, cuffs, etc…
AND LET’S GO WITH PATTERNS …
Below you can see a preview of the patterns:
There are 5 patterns:
1.Back: cut with the fabric folded in half
2.Collar: cut with the fabric folded in half to make it twice as long. Cut out two identical pieces of fabric and one more piece of interfacing
3.Front: cut 2, one of each side of pattern piece so you have 2 opposite or mirror pieces.
4.Placket: cut 2 identical pieces .
5.Sleeve: cut 2, one of each side of pattern piece so you have 2 opposite pieces, the right sleeve and left sleeve.
And a picture of all the pieces already cut out:
HOW TO SEW THE SHIRT STEP BY STEP:
1.Attaching the placket to the front: Place the PLACKET over the FRONT with right sides facing together and sew the raw edge. Finish this seam with zig zag stitch to prevent fraying.
Do not forget to finish with zig zag stitch the loose raw edge of the placket to prevent fraying.
2.Preparing the placket. Now make a small cut (1/2 inches) on the middle top of the placket. See image below:
Now sew where is indicated (in white) in the image below (with right sides of PLACKET and FRONT facing together) to make a corner. Zig zag stitch to secure.
Then turn right side out. It will look like this:
Topstitch the inner seam of the placket to secure:
Repeat steps 1 to 2 with the other side.
3.Sewing the shoulder’s seams. Place the FRONT and BACK pieces with right sides facing together. Sew and zig zag to secure. It will look like this.
Turn right side out. It will look like this:
4.Sew two collar pieces with the interfacing with right sides facing and overlock.Cut corners of seam allowances and turn the collar right side out.
Iron and edgestitch along the outer edge of the collar.
5.Attach the collar to the bodice. Match the center-back of the raw edge of the collar to the center-back of the bodice neck’s edge and pin to hold. Check to make sure that the collar ends in the middle of the plackets. Sew one fabric layer of the collar with the interfacing to the bodice. Let the other fabric layer loose.
Now sew the other collar layer. Tuck the seam allowances under the folded edge of the collar, just covering the seam line as shown in the animated picture below and edge-stitch:
So the collar looks perfect inside and out!
6.Overlock the raw end edge of the sleeve.Fold outward and edge stitch to make the cuff. Below you have an explanatory image to know how to sew the sleeve.
7.Attach the sleeves to the bodice. First pin the sleeves. With right sides of the fabric facing together, sew each sleeve to the armhole curve and overlock this seam.
8.Pin the sleeves and side seams together and sew the sleeves starting from the cuff all the way down, around the armpit, and down the entire side of the shirt and zig zag.
9.Make the bottom hem and overlock.
10.Make buttonholes and sew the buttons.
And you’re done!
