    britches for females? Willow should be coming in season in the next month or so and no store around here carries her size for under $40. I didn't know if anyone here either had a pattern or could make them. She's about 50 pounds now, but I would have to measure her waist. Let me know if you make them, or suggest a site [​IMG]

    What about getting a kids pair of sweat or stretch pants from the goodwill and modifying them for what you need. Probably cost you a nickle.

    This is kind of ghetto looking, but before Maggie was spayed, we used a pair of panties with a pad on the inside. Just cut a hole for her tail.

    I bet Coyote's suggestion would work. you would have to try the pants on Willow and make some judgements.

    I made our chihuahua's No Sexy britches out of one of my daughters old socks. I cut off the foot and seamed the resulting opening closed. In the top of the heel I cut the slit for her tail. Then I cut the slits for her legs. The spandex top kept the little britches in place.

    I am probably going to try the panties thing. Anyone know what size a husky would need lol. We do plan on getting her spayed, but right now I don't have the money, and since all others are fixed, I'm not in a rush.

    I would check out Family Dollar or Dollar General. You can usually find them in bins. Maybe in the dollar store too. I'm thinking little girls size 5?
