I was really impressed with the patterns, and video tutorials, especially as I hadn't sewn in a very long time (amazing what you forget). Your information was easy to follow, and my raincoat was very professional looking.



This pattern was definitely the best-fitted dog coat I have made. I was able to customise the pattern pieces (with the help of Jill’s advice/tutorial) to my dog's measurements while also considering the length of my dog's body.

The step-by-step instructions are well presented and understandable via video and everything necessary is explained. On top of that great tips are provided on materials, supplies, tools etc. Jill's patience and assistance in times of uncertainty were very helpful. Through

Jill’s warmth, patience and passion my interest in custom-designed dog apparel sewing has grown even more. I am proud to be a member of this exclusive group.



Today, I am proud of my confident transformation. I still have a lot to learn and will face new future challenges. But Jill is a special person and wonderful teacher and an inspiration to me.

If you have any unanswered questions Jill is always willing to help through her experience and patience. Sewing dog wear has become my NEW passion. A dream of mine has been fulfilled and Jill has made the learning curve easier and enjoyable.


Meet Jill

I am the pattern designer, educator and founder of Scouter Wear, a small boutique company that has been hand-making a full line of water-resistant dog coats, hand-knit dog sweaters and dog accessories since 2015. My innovative dog-wear was borne out of numerous experiments with various techniques, materials, styles, and features, and I would love the opportunity to share that knowledge with you.

Before I started Scouter Wear, I owned an eLearning company for over 15 years, developing online courseware. I draw on these roots to create interactive learning that is fun and inviting for avid home stitchers who want to work with their hands and build new skills.

My mission is to inspire joy in creating sustainable, functional dog wear!
