Not all dog clothing is created equal. Many use dated patterns, make the dogs look frumpy with the cut, and others that just don’t fit the dogs. There are certain breeds that have a greater need for clothing like the hairless Chinese crested. They need to protect their skin from scratches as well as from the UV outside when they are in the sun. There are others that have a harder time finding a good fit for dog clothing like the Italian Greyhound with their large chest cavities. With these two breeds in mind I designed a handful of clothing items that are not only stylish but well fitting and have a modern vibe.
Because the Chinese Crested as delicate skin that needs protecting, all pieces have a turtleneck. The edging is done on the sleeves, turtleneck, and around the body. The patterns used are made from organic cotton, are soft yet durable – an excellent pick for sensitive dog skin. I like the look of black when framing most of the body pieces, it gives the patterns a pop without being too overwhelming which tends to be true when used allover.
