Little Red Riding Hood Cape: Ta-dah!

Little Red Riding Hood Cape: Ta-dah!

Posted in Sewing

Whilst it may seem that it has taken me an age to make the Little Red Riding Hood Cape from Little Things to Sew, I in fact finished is a really long time ago, I just hadn’t found the time to take some pictures.

The cape had been hanging patiently waiting for the following conditions for a photography session:

  • a three and a half (the half is suddenly very important) year old
  • the three and a half year old to be wearing something suitable (i.e. clean and vaguely matching)
  • the weather to be half decent
  • a one year old to be asleep or at the very least in a non clingy type mood
The other day was that day – hurrah!!

So here it is, Charlotte’s new (ish) Little Red Riding Hood Cape, perfect for the dressing up box or even every day use as she loves it so much.

I am so pleased I chose the Oliver+S pattern from the Little Things to Sew book that I have. I like the structure over the shoulders and the little holes for hands. The Hood also has a nice shape and stays on quite well which is always a bonus.

I am also still pleased with the fabrics that I chose for the cape. I must say, in the past I have been known to make some fairly terrible fabric choices and have ended up with garments that really don’t drape or sit as well as they should ! These fabrics however were made for the job. I am so in love with the little ditsy print. Luckily (or slightly annoyingly depending on your view point) there is loads of it left so I will try to incorporate it into something else in the future.

Charlotte loves it but patience for a photo shoot is limited….
