    I’ve was wondering if the large size Red Riding Hood Cape would fit a small adult? It would only needs to come to elbow length. I’m struggling to find a short cape with a hood to make for a friend, and I know this one goes together very easily 🙂

    I have a friend who is 4′ 11″ who made the cape for herself as a Halloween costume.

    Thanks Robin, this gives me enough encouragement to make one up and see how it fits her. She’s a bit taller than your friend, maybe 5’4″ or 5’6″? But it will be much easier working with an Oliver and S pattern than mucking around with a big4!

    5′ 4”’ is not a small adult!

    Well from my point of view at 6 feet tall it is! 🙂

    I’ve just reduced the pattern and made one for a doll…!!

    Hmmm…I am 5’4″, and pretty sure it wouldn’t fit me – but I do have big boobs 😉

    I’m 5’2, and it fits me pretty well, but I would have wanted to lengthen it by 4-5 inches and then move the arm holes down. I’d say try it in a muslin and see how it works out.

    I’m planning on eliminating the armholes, thanks for the reminder Johanna 🙂
