Create a Harness
For the ladybug body, create a simple harness out of black fleece. Measure your dog around the chest, halfway down the back, and also around the waist. Cut the black fleece into a modified H shape, with the arms of the H matching your dog's chest and waist measurements plus 2" (the arms should be about 2-1/2" wide). The center of the H should be about 8" wide and the length of half your dog's back. For example, on a medium dog, this harness has straps that measure 23" end to end and a center panel measuring 8" wide by 9" long.
