Thank you everybody! Also, I made wolf hoodie for my little boy. They looked cute together!

I can't tell you how many time we read little red riding hood book. My daughter know words by her heart. I decided to make her a red riding hood costume. No pattern for dress, just eyeballing. I used pattern (making a hood was kinda rough for me...) for red cape from internet. Adjusted the straps, hem the skirt. Added the fake white apron. Lucky she still have white turtleneck shirt and a pair of black shoes to go with it. Only costed me $13.67 for the fabrics. Super happy that it did not break my bank!

That's pretty neat, I like it.  How's the fit on the arms?  I always have trouble with armholes and sleeves binding my big shoulders.

I was worried at first too, cuz I have a big bust  Wink As you see the first picture of lady, there's no armholes. It is for tie. I hem the edges. Cut hole and V for the head. Added the straps. Added the cord stings for tie back. It fits my bust nicely. I was able to move my arms and shoulders freely, but when I reach up it shows the belly. It's not a long length. I feel this top is not for lot of movements. This will be perfect for dinner out. I have couple of high waist pants that looks good with this top. However, I finally found the tutorial if you are still curious...

While surfing the internet, I came upon to this awesome picture. I can't find pattern for this one. It is easy to make. By looking at it, you really don't need the tutorial for this one. I made my own pattern similar to this.


I used one yard fabric for the top, plus 1/2 half yard for the straps.

Took me a hour to complete it. I have black circle skirt that will look good with this top. Voila!

I am a long time lurker, it's time for me to come out the shell  Grin

I'm a HUGE fan of Mad Men. I have been drooling over the fashions. I found the fabric from Hobby Lobby on sale. Butterflies and color black are my favorite.....perfect combine! I attracted the petticoat to make it look puffy. It is my second attempt, I'm pleased with this!
