Red Riding Hood - Cape

Added Feb 26, 2009

by luzie

Munich, Germany






I needed a new costume for carnival and I love little red riding hood… When I found this super-cheap red fleece blanket that perfectly goes with my dirndl I made a cape of it. The lining is black (great for a next years devil costume ;-)).
I love the cape and would love to wear it apart from carnival, but it is a little stiff and a little too red…

Material Notes

fleece, cotton





my first self-drafted pattern

    I’ve been looking for a pattern for a cape just like this! Any chance you could share how you did it?

    Also, when you say “The lining is black (great for a next years devil costume”, does that mean it’s reversable too?

    I would truly love you forever if you could give me the pattern, I’d be willing to compensate for it of course :)

    This is great. I really love the style of the cape. The button closure at the neck is my favorite part, it’s so different than what I usually see on capes.

    Da ich meine Kleine letztes Jahr eine solche genäht habe, kann ich wohl nichts schlechtes üder deine sagen :) Nä, im Ernst, ich finde das ganke Kostüm super hübsch. Darin hast du sicher viel Spaß gehabt. Und ich finde sie überhaupt nicht zu rot und definitiv alltagtauglich!
