What I Made
Little Red Riding Hood cape
How I Made it
Wanted to make my own costume, so I found the tutorial on your Web site and decided to go for it! Seemed easy..and it was! Bought my fabric, a nice velvet red, for only $15! Then I just followed all the steps! I don't have a sewing machine so I sewed the cape by hand using threat, a needle, scissors and measuring tape. The pictures were really helpful. It only took me 2-3 hours. Fun project!
Tips and Tricks
- Pick quality fabric, worth the price and the result is great.
Rain Blanken, DIY Fashion Guide, says:Gen, this looks fantastic! I hope you had a good time partying in your new cape, you totally fit the part of Red Riding Hood.
Also, I have to agree... the quality of the material can make or break any costume. So many of those store-bought costumes are made of such flimsy fabric. You made a great choice with the velvet. Thanks for sharing!
