We received this photo and letter from Irene in New Jersey, about a pattern she made for her grand-dog, Zevi. She is a serious Yankees fan who buys Yankees clothes for everyone on her gift lists but there was nothing available for this Boston Terrier, so she modified a pattern designed for Martha Stewart’s dogs, which are French Bulldogs. The colors in Vanna’s Choice are Sapphire and White.
“It took 2 days working several hours each to make this sweater. I used Vanna’s Choice instead of the yarn in the pattern. I had to make a small back and a large bottom. The back was made in two parts, white and navy, and then sewn together. I also eliminated the second button because he did not have enough room for his front legs. I tried the sweater on many times to get the fit right but he was so good about it. He is a terrific dog. We just adore him. Amazingly he really likes wearing it. He actually grabbed it back after I took it off.”
