Snow White or a Super Hero

If you live in a house of little girls who love princesses, it won't take long for them to start asking to dress like a princess. A few years ago I made my daughter a Snow White costume, complete with a cape, which she was thrilled over. More than a few times I've been accompanied by Snow White on trips to the grocery store. It's amazing the kind of attention princesses get in stores too, it's just short of paparazzi! ;)

Last year around Halloween, when Etsy's Alchemy was still up and running (wahhhh, I loved Alchemy!), I got the chance to make a little Canadian girl her own reversible Snow White cape!




What I love most about this cape is its versatility - it's not particularly girly-looking. So many costumes are strictly boy or girl because of the colors or the style they're made in. But this is an easy switch - Snow White or Super Hero! :)
