No guesses needed. First choice was Winnie the Pooh. I drew a blank on the costume front and asked her to pick again. She chose Little Red riding hood and i thought, phew, easy, cant go wrong there!
I drew a cape shape freehand and then mirrored it. (I prefer to cut a whole piece, rather than cut on the fold as I find its never accurate enough otherwise).
I gathered the neck with elastic just to keep it nice a soft and comfortable. Also in an attempt to avoid strangulation!
The dress was a school summer dress with a apron that I made from an old linen table cloth. Much easier than last years. And hopefully she will wear it again too.
