Halloween is getting very close, so I thought it would be fun to look at how costumes change (or don't!) over the decades. There are perennial favorites, and ones from fairy tales are always winning choices.
Here is a rare and lovely costume from the 1930s that features Little Red Riding Hood and an angel:
From 1996, this pattern features Little Red Riding Hood, too, as well as Dorothy Gale from the Wizard of Oz (or simply a darling country dress with pinafore).
If you are sew quickly (and most costumes are designed to be sewn quickly), there is still time to put together a fine costume!
