My last one is in elementary school for her final year. I have desperately tried to bribe her to wear a tutu of some sort. Seems only natural since she has been dressed in one every year since birth. Nevertheless, she has decided upon Little Red Riding Hood. Today I attempted the cape.
Christmas Red Velvet and a fun Japanese Red Riding Hood Storybook print.
I have a soft spot for these cute prints and love to get them from Superbuzzy.
Let it be known I proceeded without a pattern...I had one in my head but I couldn't find the one that was worth paying for? So off I went...cutting with my scissors!
Claire wanted it to be more of a caplet than a cape. (This is on my full sized mannequin.) I am happy with the details. Putting the lining on the outside of the hood back trimmed in velvet showed off the fabric more. The combination of the fabrics and their weight help to give this shape. Whether it is cold or hot I think this will suit all Hallows Eve. I am off to find Red Boots!
