Are your kids excited for Halloween? I know mine are! While my oldest is recycling a witch costume from a few years ago, my littlest told me that she wanted to be Little Red Riding Hood, so how could I resist?!
This was a super simple costume to put together, and only took about a yard and a half of fabric. I used Dana's awesome circle skirt tutorial for the skirt, which I just hemmed with a rolled edge on my serger. Paired with a long sleeved white t shirt, she can wear both pieces again. She loves the skirt as it has major twirl factor :D
To make the hood, I cut two hood pieces using an existing pattern, then cut a circle using the same method as I used on the skirt. I just cut down the middle so that it opened in the front, did some narrow seams on the edges, and gathered the neckline a bit so that it was the same size as the hood. Same rolled edge hem and some ribbon ties, and voila! A little red hood.
Of course, Little Red needs her spooky ghost earrings on her trip to grandmother's house ;-)
My little one has already asked me to sew an S on the back of this after Halloween so that it can become a super hero cape - she's a girly girl, but she does love her super heroes!
What are your kiddos dressing up as for Halloween? Did you make their costumes?
