Hello Readers,

The love for Frozen still rumbles on in this household.

Here’s the inspiration:

Here’s my version:

I used view D from Simplicity 2571. If I had thought about it I would have rounded the corners off. The fabric is the same fabric I used to make my New Look 6097 wrap dress. I simply cut 2 back pieces; one lengthened to around 70 cm, and one shortened to around 30 cm, and treated them as one, sewing them to a shortened front piece. I didn’t interface the collar.

It’s all very rough and ready. I didn’t even finish any edges or hem it…but it’s a ponte knit…so what…and the important thing is that Kezia loves it.

About this pattern: I (or rather Kezia) have had my money’s worth out of it. Pre-blogging days I used view A to make her a wedding dress. This photo was taken in 2011…how fast they grow!

And this is her in 2012 wearing the red riding hood cape from view B. Off to take lunch to granny’s house through the woods!

One pattern. Many looks. So many happy childhood memories. These are the things which make sewing worthwhile.

Have a great Sunday and week ahead!

By day I work in the exciting world of pharmaceutical regulatory affairs, registering medicines (!), but by night I turn in to a sewing diva, making all manner of clothes in my beautiful sewing space (which you can tour using the link at the top of this blog). I love how sewing and sewing clothes that fit my curvy body continually challenges me. I enjoy working with all different types of fabric, and whilst I don't like to put restrictions on myself and say I won't buy RTW, the truth is that I probably rarely do buy it, preferring the fit of my own me-made clothes. I love to use natural fibres where ever possible and colourful coats are an obsession of mine! Sewing is both my addiction and my therapy. You can contact me at sewmanju@yahoo.co.uk

  1. This is just so cute!!!!!! I also made my girls costumes, they loved dressing up and you’re so right, children grow so quickly, my girls are already 23 and 20, so enjoy the time with your litle girl. She looks so happy!

  2. Just the pattern for the FROZEN Cape I was looking for . I will sew it for my 7 year old granddaughter for Halloween. Thanks, Victoria

  3. Thank you very very much! Manju, I love you so much for sewing such pretty clothes, I always dream that I become a creative and fashional sewer, then my children and I will enjoy dressing clothes sewed by myself.
    I will have a lot of disposable time. I do admit that I’m a beginner, but I love sewing very much, and I often find some tutors about clothes design by Internet such as http://www.wikihow.com/Design-Clothes.
    At beginning, I used an old manual sewing machine, and then I have troubles on how to use it effectively and comfortably . Some day ago, an old sewer gave me an advice that I should have a user-friendly computerized sewing machine.
    But how to choose a suitable machine troubled me again, and then worked hard for several hours on google, so I finally find a clear comparison chart among all kinds of sewing machines on the site http://www.bestsewingmachinereviewspro.com and select one which is best for me.
    It is very helpful to me, and I am happy to share my trouble of growing up to a fashional sewer.
    Thanks again for Manju, We all love your cute forever!
