This is a very easy dog vest.
What you will need:
1 pair of denim jeans
CAUTION, denim jeans must be strait wide leg or boot cut and measured to be have a circumference slightly bigger than the chest of your dog.
Today my husband bought a pair of Levi's from the thrift store and cut off the bottom half to make shorts. This is what I did with the remnant.
Step 1: Cut 1
Measure the length of your dog, from the base of their neck to half way down their back. Cut a tube of denim from the bottom of the jeans in this length.
Note: for a more distressed look make a small cute and then tear the rest of the denim. This will give the fabric a curled and frayed look at the end.
Step 2: Cut 2
Now cut the fabric down the middle from the widest portion towards the skinniest leaving at least 2 inches of fabric at the end. This two inches will create the neck of the vest and keep it on your buddy while they run and play.
Note: if you want a rolled collar then leave more than 2 inches at the neck.
Step 3: Cut 3 and 4
Now embellish if you so chose and slip it on your furry friend.
