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 How to Make a Cape for all the details and video on just the cape.

The making of the plaid skirt in this photo can be seen at How to Make a Skirt
Keep in mind it is made using the 50s Poodle Skirt pattern by Simplicity. I made a summer skirt in blue gingham (pictured below), and a winter skirt in the red flannel(pictured above). Both the same pattern, but different fabrics for a completely different skirt. One of the best things about sewing is all the creativity. You can make it whatever you want.

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