    i *may* be procrastinating work here but i was wondering if someone could send me the fabric requirements for the cape for a 4 year old… i don’t have my book here with me and finger is itchy on the fabric website. ha!

    If I remember correctly the cape is in 2 sizes, M and L. I want to think it calls for 1.5 yd for the M (main and lining), which is the size I made for my almost 3 year old last fall, and still fits her. I will try my best to remember to look at the book when I get home from work. I know this “may be procrastinating” feeling. 🙂

    I actually have one cut and sitting on my sewing table right now. I am making a medium for my 2 year old. She’s tall and is starting to wear 3T’s. Generally when I sew for her, I make 2T width and 3T length. TMI, I know. Anyway, for the medium Sayiamyou is correct. 1 and 1/2 yards of fabric A and 1 and 1/2 yard of fabric B. I cut mine yesterday and think if you aren’t working with a directional print and strategically place the pieces you could probably get away with 1 yard of each. For safety sake, more is always better.

    I hadn’t looked at the book yet, but was thinking I’d make my daughter a Little Red Riding Hood costume for Halloween since she could/would likely use the pieces of it again as regular wear. She’s only 14m now, although wearing 18m – 2T, but now I’m wondering if the cape will be too large!? Hmm…
