Making of a St Paddy's day dog vest

Due to popular demand, of one person, here are some pics for the making of a dog vest.
Materials needed - tape measure, thread, bobbin, pattern pieces - most made of paper towels, D-Ring, white buttons, shamrock buttons, scissors, pen, customer info sheet, pins, dress makers label, vest fabric, white shirt fabric.
I covered the dining table with a flannel back table cloth to protect the table.


Cut out all the pieces:



Here are all the pieces cut out and ironed, and fabric label has been stitched into the back of the shirt:




Sew the vest pieces first:




Pin the center piece and the vest pieces to the shirt front and stitch in place:
