So, this year I was little red riding hood for Halloween.
I figured it was one of the classics, and I have never done it before.


The whole shebang.

The cape is made of red cotton, the pattern is See&Sew 4266.
The skirt is black cotton, with a red net petticoat, Simplicity 3847.
And the bloomers are Christmas cotton and were adapted from Butterick 6884.
The tank top I bought at target. I stenciled the "no wolf" design on in acrylic paint.
The fishnets I bought.

More pics:

Spooky.


Happy Red!
I may have had a beverage or two by this point.


Whee!


Ha... Wha?

I had a great Halloween.
Everybody knew who I was meant to be... Although a couple didn't figure it out until they saw the shirt.

Sorry, I didn't think to take any progress shots.
But here is what's left of the fabric.

I had a lot of extra net...
I might make another skirt.
The one I made sits really high, what with the pattern actually being for a poodle skirt.
I would like another one that sits on the hips, not way up at the natural waist.

I love this. It's great to see a grown woman not wearing a ridiculously short "sexy" Red Riding Hood. (does anyone remember that she was a child? heh, sorry.)

Don't get me wrong, you look amazing, just saying is all...haha.

I love the shirt and the bloomers. And the cape is nicely done. Great job!

I was going for cute, and not slutty.

To be fair, the Grimms edited out much of the sex from their tales, particularly in later editions. Read Perrault's much earlier version ("Le Petit Chaperon Rouge") to see what a wicked little lady she was --she gets undressed and hops right into bed with the wolf!

That said, I like the bloomers and lack of butt-baring. Ooh, those stripes are so cute. :3

In the ground where I want to live, I see these brand new faces I want to wear.
