My daughter likes for me to make her costumes, but I was short on time this year because our local German festival was coming up, and this year is her first year to dance in it, which required me to make her a dirndl.  I made this deal that I would make her Halloween costume, but I would use the same pattern as the dirndl pattern, and that is how we settled on Little Red Riding Hood.  
I made the Halloween dirndl first, which worked out smart because I knew what adjustments I needed to make for her dance costume.  On to pics:

I thought I was soooooo clever because I found this wolf fabric to line the cape:

Here is Little Red's dirndl:

There are more pictures from our Halloween photoshoot in my flickr set:

I finished the Halloween costume the night before Halloween, and within the week, I finished her dance dirndl!

I can't wait till we go to the festival!

Love it! Especially that clever wolf riding hood lining Wink. I don't know that my daughter will ever go for this costume but I could always make one in my size, right? Cheesy.

The bad news: There is no key to happiness.
The good news: It isn't locked.

both dresses are adorable.  I love that she wants you to make her costumes, my kids are always proud of their original costumes!

Inspiration without application is moot.

I love the cape. The second picture looks like the wolf beside her face and she are in cahoots, sharing some wonderful secret.
