The Little Red Riding Hood.....that isn't red....

I love adding cute accessories to my reenactment wardrobe. This fall I finally finished the "Little Red Riding Hood" Pattern from Peterson's 1862. I didn't do it exactly as the directions specified, for I didn't feel up to doing all those little scalloped edges. Instead, I did a bias binding in matching fabric. The outer fabric is a lightweight tan wool, and the lining/bows/binding are done in a lovely blue/green silk. This is a super simple and easy project!
