Cape challenge completed!
Finished my cape challenge. The Oliver & S red riding hood cape was so much fun to make. I made it slightly more complicated than necessary by making it reversable, and then having to rethread my machine about 6 times as I kept forgetting things! I've already started cutting out my next cape, making it a medium size with a self drafted small hood, as the large cape fitted me rather than the age 6-10 it was designed for! I had to put a red riding hood button on both sides that I bought especially from Stitchbird Fabrics (actually the buttons were the inspiration). So here it is.
All cut out and ready to sew. Its a crushed green cotton from Global Fabrics, and a red Cordroy that a friend gifted me.
The red side with the cute button.
The fully reversable green side.
And to show its size in reality, modelled by Mr F age 3. (and no I could not get it to not rotate!).
