Once upon a time, there was a little girl who lived in a village near the forest.  Whenever, she went out, the little girl wore a red riding cloak, so everyone in the village called her Little Red Riding Hood.

One morning, Little Red Riding Hood asked her mother if she could go to visit her grandmother as it had been awhile since they'd seen each other.

"That's a good idea," her mother said.  So they packed a nice basket for Little Red Riding Hood to take to her grandmother.



When the basket was ready, the little girl put on her red cloak and kissed her mother goodbye.

"Remember, go straight to Grandma's house," her mother cautioned.  "Don't dawdle along the way and please don't talk to strangers!  The woods are dangerous."

"Don't worry, mommy," said Little Red Riding Hood, "I'll be careful."



But when Little Red Riding Hood noticed some lovely flowers in the woods, she forgot her promise to her mother.  She picked a few, watched the butterflies flit about for awhile, listened to the frogs croaking and then picked a few more. 



Little Red Riding Hood was enjoying the warm summer day so much, that she didn't notice a dark shadow approaching out of the forest behind her...



Suddenly, the wolf appeared beside her.

"What are you doing out here, little girl?" the wolf asked in a voice as friendly as he could muster.

"I'm on my way to see my Grandma who lives through the forest, near the brook,"...

I used Simplicity pattern 3618. Also, I forgot that I moved to a dorm room with no hammer, so I couldn't do the grommets on the vest. And of course, I waited until Oct. 30th to figure that out.  Undecided




The cape was the only part that really told what I was. It's also the part I love the most. I used velvet, which was really expensive, but whatever.

Next year, my friends and I want to do theme costumes and go as a group. Any suggestions for a group of 8-10 people?

Comments? Questions?

The velvet cape was a good investment. You can wear it to winter parties, or any formal-ly occasion. Plus it would look great with jeans and a sweater. That red is fabulous on you!

Cute costume, as well.
