I am loving all the skirt name suggestions! It's going to be hard to choose! I am going to try to narrow it down to three or four or five....and put a poll up for you to vote. And while we're on the subject of red, how about some more? (And now my red fabric supply needs to be replenished!)
There are so many versions of Little Red Riding Hood, but this one is short, sweet, simple, and takes on a bit of a twist that will bring a smirk to your face.
I also made a bit of a twist on the hood. And Red's basket. ;)The big red plaid reminded me of a picnic blanket, so we wrapped that picnic blanket up to forage for wild strawberries.
Clover's picnic basket top is a Clever Charlotte pattern with my variation of added capped sleeves. AND! It's reversible, so she can wear it on the white side with just a bit of the red peeking out on the front ties. The little jacket is also a Clever Charlotte pattern, and it is also reversible, and as usual, I've fallen in love with Carla's (of Clever Charlotte) truly clever designs. These were deceivingly simple, but ever so stunning.
Back to our plot.
These two have plans up their (short) sleeves. They always do.
Just as Little Red Hood does for Mr. Wolf. Grab this book to find out what happens!
My strawberry is just a stamp that has the ink set with heat.Clover's skirt is just a simple, self drafted pattern with over-sized pockets for treasures. Because there are always treasures at this age.
Azure's dress was actually he baptism dress, and I will share more on that later,but I used an old pattern that I've used so many times because it's easy to alter. I made the collar a bit smaller and the sleeves a bit shorter. Also. That little dip in the the hemline? That was were I discovered a (rust?) stain after I nearly finished the whole thing. I just cut it out (gasp!) and hemmed it with bias tape. We seamstresses can do anything we want. Right?
These two. Built in friends. Built in enemies.
