Hi, I'm Sarah and thank you for stopping by my website ! Here's a little bit about me... :)
I make custom made to measure dog clothing from a little cabin in my garden at home in the beautiful historic city of York in the UK.
In my younger years I studied Art & Design at college and then went on to work as a textile pattern designer.
My love of craft & design was put to one side for a time while I raised my lovely daughter. I then purchased my first sewing machine in 2010, having never used one before and no clue on how to even thread it up. I had to spend many an afternoon googling instructions ha ha!
I started out just making simple items such as the odd cushion cover. Then one cold January morning in 2012 whilst out for a walk with my 3 shivering Chihuahuas, I decided that once I got back home I would make my little furbabies a nice warm winter jacket each that they would find comfortable to wear.
Then the strangest thing happened....
Whenever the pooches were out and about in their smart new jackets we would regularly be stopped in the street by complete strangers asking where they could buy the coats! I was completely amazed and flattered by the lovely comments. I started taking orders and then offered my items for sale on Ebay and Facebook and that's when my little business took off.... whos-that-doggie was born!
The rest is history and now I'm sewing everyday & get so much pleasure in making my items. I've made lots of friends (returning customers) along the way and i'm doing something I love. Life doesn't get much better than this.
I hope that you will find a creation that catches your eye or that you will just enjoy browsing the many cute photos of my gorgeous customers in their new items.
You can follow me on Facebook, Instagram & Twitter – I would really love to see you there! xx
