It's a dogs life

If you've ever been to Sewtropolis you most likely have met, Skilos the shop dog.  Skilos is so good at her job that she has her own facebook fan page AND people ask where she's at if they are not greeted by her right away! 
Between greeting people she likes to nap on her mat (custom made by a fan of hers).  It's been so cold lately that she has been shivering, so I decided to make her a polar fleece jacket - which turned out super cute - but didn't quite fit her.  She didn't seem to mind that people were giggling at how small her jacket was, but as her mom (and sewist) I decided to try to make another one... this time I took her measurements!  (I'm not sure if I wanted to admit that - but there it is). 
I'll admit, I didn't use a pattern for this jacket, I kind of figured how hard could it be?? Well, it wasn't hard if you just wanted a jacket... but if you are sewing for a Doggy Diva then I say start with a pattern!  
Here is the Doggy Diva herself:
That is not a happy look on her face!

One thing I noticed when putting on this jacket is that she curls her lips (to indicate she's not too happy with wearing it) every time I put it on her.  With the first jacket she didn't once curl her lips. Maybe I should have stuck with that one.   

Is that the evil eye she's giving me?
Okay, okay - stop with the glaring I'll make you another one!
