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