Red Riding Hood Costume

Added Oct 18, 2010

Charleston, West...






I made this little Red Riding Hood Costume using my own pattern, vintage red kettle cloth, cotton/ poly gingham and a vintage flower print. I am SO thrilled with the way this turned out. I had really low expectations haha. I live in a college town where most girls end up wearing postage stamp sized articles of clothing. I’m not really into that, but I wanted to feel sexy as well and I feel like this costume is a happy medium. It’s shorter and lower cut than I usually wear, but Halloween only comes once a year, right?! More at my blog

Material Notes

kettle cloth, cotton/poly gingham, cotton, grommets




Garment Type
Cotton, Blends

    Good thing little red didn’t really dress like that, she would have had more to worry about than the Big Bad Wolf. LOL
