Sewing a fleece dog coat with a bias tape
How to sew a simple fleece dog coat and use the bias tape to finish the raw edge
Below is a video tutorial on how I sew a fleece dog coat with bias tape for a finished edge. I modified the pattern from an old dog coat that is a little too small. It is very simple and straightforward. You can adjust the size to fit your dog easily by making a muslin mock-up and try on your dog.
You will need:
- Fleece fabric
- Bias tape (I use 4 yards of double-fold 1/4" wide bias tape)
- Velcro enclosure
- Sewing machine and basic supplies
- Brown Kraft paper or any paper for drafting your pattern
