In the last post, I showed the Cinderella costume I made for my cousin. They live in the middle of the country and I just assume anywhere that isn’t Florida is probably freezing in October at night. So I wanted to make sure she had a coordinating layer to keep her warm.
I used McCall’s M6420 in the smallest size. The only alteration I made was to add a 5 inch hem. Much like the mega hem I added to the dress so I could let it out when she got taller, I wanted to be able to let this one out as well. I realized that the stitch line would probably leave an indentation but I figured I would just hide it with some trim when I actually let it out.
But I didn’t mind the general look of the large hem. I trimmed the whole cape with the same trim as the skirt on the Cinderella costume.
She loved it and it fit perfectly. It’s actually a really versatile cape (I could actually fit it over my shoulders as a caplet and almost wanted to keep it myself!) and even her brother likes to steal it now and then 😀
