Lay the inner and outer BACK pieces RIGHT SIDES TOGETHER. Place the COLLAR between the two BACK pieces at the neckline.
Pin in place. Stitch all around as shown in the diagram leaving a 10cm gap unstitched on one side.
Clip and trim the seam allowance as in Step 1 but leave the 10cm seam allowance un-clipped or trimmed.
Turn RIGHT SIDES OUT and press gently using a pressing cloth is necessary. Fold the 10cm opening seam allowance to the inside.
Top-stitch all around the garment.
Complete by adding the velcro to the neck bands and the waistband ends. Sew the softer part of the velcro to the lining pieces to help avoid the coarser part getting tangled in your pets fur.
Sew all around the inside of the velcro pieces to ensure they stay secure.
Finally, add your buttons to the waistband to complete your smart Rascal Jacket!
