Testimonials

REALLY IMPRESSED WITH THE PATTERNS

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.

THE BEST-FITTing DOG COAT I HAVE EVER MADE

This pattern was definitely the best-fitting dog coat I have made. I was able to customise the pattern pieces (with the help of Jill’s advice and tutorials) to my dog's measurements while also considering the shape 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.

Meet Jill

I am the pattern designer and 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 high-quality waterproof dog coats were borne out of numerous experiments with various techniques, materials, styles, and features, and I want the opportunity to share that knowledge with you.

Before I started Scouter Wear, I owned an eLearning company for over 12 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!
