My Granddaughter is a big fan of Little Red Ridinghood, well I believe she has more of an obsession with that nasty wolf. So this week I made her an outfit that she was totally smitten with, except for the fact there was no cape. The first thing out of her mouth was, “Hey where is my cape?” Can’t put anything past that little. Isn’t it funny how you put together one outfit and all of a sudden your head is swirling with other ideas on how to make a different dress? Don’t be surprised if I make a couple of more outfits for her in the Little Red motif. I just had gotten a couple of Riley Blake’s Little Red fabric and I have 3 more different fabrics ordered off of Etsy. So heeeeerrrrreeeeee she is in all her crowning glory, my very own sweet Little Red! Gotta love those cheesy smiles. As you can see she is a girl after my own heart, vintage clip on earrings and a necklace.
I made the skirt pattern on my own, the yoke (the top of the Skirt) is cut on the fold at 18 1/4″ which will give you 36 1/2″ width, and a length of 3 1/2″. The bottom of the skirt is also cut on the fold 20″ wide which will give you a measurement of 40″ by 13″ long. The apron is 10 1/2″ long by 16 wide. If you plan on embroidering on your apron, which by the way I have a fetish for, cut out 2 and use a stabilizer on the back of your embroidering.
Be on the lookout for more Little Red outfits that have been swirling around in my head, well at least the ole’ noggin isn’t empty now. If anyone has any ideas they would like to share, leave me a comment. Another outfit is in need of attention. Tata for now, from Little red, her little sister and the Grandmama.
