Little Red Riding Hood
So my sister asked me to make my niece her Halloween costume. Everything shooting some ideas her way she finally decided on Red Riding Hood Bat….now for those of you who are clueless to such request so was I. I didn’t know what she wanted and finally settled Red Riding Hood only. Which I was pleased with. So now it was a matter of trying to find what pattern would work for this little project. Mind you my sister lives in another state. So based on my niece’s clothing size it gave me an idea as to her size. My little trooper, Robert who is amazing and patient little 2 year old kid served as my model….poor little guy but I love him.lick here to edit.
So I decided on the Simplicity 4024 pattern as the basis for my Red Riding Hood Costume. I’m blessed to live in a city that still has Swamp Meets every Tue, Wed, Fri, Sat, and Sun. So I can usually find good fabric for a reasonable price. I couldn’t image going to Joanns and spending $5 - 7 bucks a yard when I can find it at $2 at this place. They also have a notions section that you can find pretty much everything. So the fabric and the notions cost little over $10 which I was very pleased. Anytime I can save money I’m super happy. So I got to work.
I found this really nice bright pink almost red gingham fabric that worked perfectly. I had the inside lined with white satin, and drafted the pattern for her little apron. I need to find picture of her little bloomers since a lady must always be covered in case any little accidents occurred. I also drafted the pattern for her cloak.
My little Bella looked so adorable in this she didn’t want to take it off. I’m glad it worked out for her much cuter than Little Red Riding Hood Bat or whatever that crazy idea was….
