Make this Little Red Riding Hood Costume. Just add a basket, black leotards and boots to finish it off. These pieces are not just for Halloween costumes. Use these practical pieces all year long. Use the cape, dress and apron for multiple occasions. Just change the fabric and a few details. The photo below shows examples of all the ways to mix and match these pieces.
Below you'll find a brief description of the cape, apron and dress. If you'd like the full details, just click the appropriate link and get the video, more photos, and step by step instructions.
CAPE: In this example I used fleece and flannel for the cape. I also made it reversible for even more style. As you can see in the photos pictured here, it is quite cozy and adorable. Check out

APRON: I made the apron out of old sheets, and can use it for parties, or other costumes. Cost 0. See

for full details and video on how to make just the apron.
DRESS: I used an old graduation gown for the dress. It is a silky polyester that cost 0. It's dressy enough for a party. Just add a belt or not. Check out How to Make a Dress (Little Red Riding Hood Dress pattern) for full details on how to make just the dress.
Not only is this Little Red Riding Hood costume practical, and the pieces useful year round, it is also comfortable. Use the basket as a purse, and use leggings or leotards with boots for total warmth and comfort.
Doesn't get much better than that.
