Well last week I finally completed a bespoke order I was asked to do by Alison, a family friend. She and her partner recently adopted an adorable St Bernard puppy called George.
Now, the issue with George is that he is growing at a phenomenal rate and has already outgrown the largest shop-bought collar Alison could find, so I was tasked to make a 30″ collar (yes I really did say 30 inches) with brass metalwork.
At first I had to ask Alison again and double check that the size of the collar she wanted was correct because my inside leg is 30″ and it just seemed too big!
Alison reassured me that George was HUGE and although he’s still a baby they have estimated his neck to grow to around 30″ by the time he’s fully grown.
I normally make made to measure belts in 30″ so this was definitely a first for me but I certainly hope not the last.
Hope you will enjoy looking at the pictures below showing parts of the process of making the collar:
What do you think to both George and the collar? Feel free to leave your comments below. 🙂
