Measure your Pet!

Choosing the right size for your pet's clothing is very important. Not only do you want them to look their fashionable best, but most importantly, you want them to feel comfortable. If your pet is not used to wearing clothing, comfort is crucial so your fur baby will learn to enjoy dressing up. Please take the following safety precautions while your pet is wearing clothes.

In summer or warm climates, your dog could become overheated. Make sure clothing is not tight, and fabric is breathable and cool. Only leave clothes on for short periods. Do not allow your dog to wear clothes when they're unsupervised for long periods. Halter garments are only intended for small pets that do not pull or lunge on a leash. Never use a halter unless your pet is well trained on a leash.
With a few precautions, you and your pet will love dressing up!

FD Size Chart Revised 2020

 Size Chart Old:   Many patterns  will be sized to this chart.  Patterns using New Sizing will be identified. Currently size charts relative to each pattern has a chart on each page.   

Size Chart

Patterns are available in single sizes or, if you have multi-pets of various sizes, the Pro Packages will be a good choice.    The ProC package when available contains 12 sizes and are good price and package for retail pet clothing designers.

  • Puppy Pak, Newborns and Teenies:  4XS, 3XS, 2XS, XS;
  • Pro Package A: S, M, XL, L
  • Pro Package B: 2XL, 3XL, 4XL, 5XL
  • Pro Package C: (1 each all 12 sizes; 4XS, 3XS;  2XS, XS, S, M;  L, XL, 2XL, 3XL, 4XL, 5XL. 
  • Eventually all old and new patterns will be available in all 12 sizes.  All patterns are going through this update. 

As requested, Puppy/Tiny 1-2 lb pet pattern sizes are now being released as patterns are revised and new patterns created.  Puppy Pak  is the 3rd Pro Package to be released which includes the smallest sizes 4XS, 3XS, 2XS, and XS.  These small sizes create a challenge to be created as the tiny sizes require more patience to work with the itty bitty pieces, turning, etc.  However, many of these can be made from all those remnants we all hoard, including scraps of  interfacings. 

How to Measure: 

When choosing the perfect fit for Fantaisie Designs/Miss Daisy Designs Patterns, use the following to guide you: 

Each pet is different and may need to wear the next larger pattern size, especially if your pet has a long, thick coat; is larger boned, or has a deeper fuller chest.  

When measuring try to have your pet stand relaxed.  Use a fabric or soft tape-measure.  Keep the measuring tape a bit loose and measure completely around the neck, chest girth and back length.  

      Neck:  Measure  all the way around the nape of the neck where the collar sits at the top of the shoulders..

      Chest Girth:  Measure  girth all the way around the largest circumference of their rib cage, just behind the front legs.

      Back Length: Measure from the base of the neck where the collar sits to the base of the tail.

Measurement Diagram

Patterns will fit multiple measurements within each size range. There is no standardized sizing for pet clothing or sewing patterns. Some companies sell a different size for each increment of an inch or two, but, Miss Daisy Designs/Fantaisie Designs patterns will fit all measurements shown within the size range.
