Who doesn’t love a Red Riding Hood cape? In red, it is a perfect accessory for fairy-tale play, but it can, of course, be made in any color. If made in warm wool or fleece fabric, it works perfectly as a cool-weather cover-up. Choose either a solid or colorful, large-scale print for the cape’s lining to give it your own style.

    Only two sizes
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 10/27/2019
    Note that this pattern only comes in two sizes (medium and large). It is exactly the same as the pattern in the "Little Things to Sew" book. Would be helpful to make this information a little clearer in the description. (I purchased by accident, on the misunderstanding that the digital version would get me some smaller pattern options than are in the book, which I already have.) I have successfully used this pattern (from the book) to make a costume "chain mail cowl" from silver knit fabric (by cutting all of the cape pieces very short, so they only reach the shoulders). Like all Oliver+S patterns, this one is are well thought out and easy to use. Size medium was giant on my 15-month old, but still very cute!
    Yes, it's important to note that all the patterns we have made available in digital format (including this one) that were originally included in the Little Things to Sew Book are essentially the same as what is in that now out-of-print title. You can see the sizes included in each pattern by looking at at the Fabric Guide and Finished Measurements charts in the Details section of the page.
