Who ever Little Red had to make her capes must have been something else! I’ve been working and reworking these dumb capes and the only thing I’m getting is frustrated.
I wanted to make up some cute capes for spring boutiques but they have been fraught with problems. For instance, because they are for such tiny girls when you add the weigh of the hood onto to back it nearly strangles them to wear it!
BUT then if you take off the hood (aside from being not as cute) the little collar I added makes them look like the brides of Count Dracula!
So in an effort to preserve my sanity I’m putting them away for a little while. When I attempt them again I’m thinking maybe, no hood (for safety’s sake) and a rounded (possibly scalloped) collar.
Until then here are my trial attempt photos.
