The Princess Riding Hood....

Hope has been wanting me to make her some princess clothing. I have started creating the patterns for the first dress... but in the meantime I made her a new Princess Riding Hood based loosely on a design that I found on Teresa Franco Design's Post for a hooded cape

I changed it quite a bit...because I wanted to line the hood... and I wasn't entirely sure how it tied on so I just made it work as I went...



Now she is being very dramatic in her new cape...


I guess I will have to hurry up and get more costumes finished... so she has a full outfit...
