I am new to sewing and found the patterns and directions in this book to be very easy, but you do need basic sewing skills to understand. The patterns are not life size so you do have to do the math to get the right size but if I can do it anyone can. All of the projects are to cute for words and I would highly recommend this book.

This book is a wonderful book. Patterns include knitting patterns for sweaters, even a cute outfit that includes leg warmers. Of the sewing patterns are sporty designs, a velvet smoking jacket, a safari jacket. Patterns for stuffed bone toy and ball. Patterns for various beds and blankets. Also a pattern for a collar and leash. There are several that I intend to make.

I was disappointed in this book. You have to enlarge pattern and figure out what and how. I feel this is a complicated book for a person who sews a little. I am able to follow a pattern but, this was not what I expected.

This book is filled with adorable pet projects. Even if you can't sew, it would be a cute coffee table book.
My only complaint is that it is not exactly for beginner sewers as advertised. You WILL need a sewing machine to complete pretty much every project.
Other than that, it has tons of cute ideas and tons of options for male dogs. My favorite? The velvet smoking jacket!

A few good ideas, but no actual patterns. Unless you have time to attempt the math and draw your own patterns I don't recommend this book. A better purchase is "Canine Couture Dog Coats" (Leisure Arts #4308) by Kooler Design Studio and it has actual pattern templates that can be traced onto tissue paper.

Nice book - lovely pictures - only thing is that you have to 'blow' up the patterns, haven't felt like doing that yet - so I haven't made anything yet - have had the book for a while

I was rather disappointed with this book. I was looking for a book with patterns and directions for making dog coats and dresses. This book has six coats that come from one pattern, a bath robe and a t-shirt. The rest of the book is acessories such as toys, bandanas, etc. The biggest disappointment was that the patterns are at the back of the book and are on five pages. They have to be greatly enlarged to be useful. With a computer printer, this can be done, but will take some time to get them to fit your dog. For the price of the book, I was quite disappointed. It has some cute ideas, but would not be my first choice for "fashion" patterns and instructions.
