Having grown up in a home brimming with sewing notions and paintbrushes, Amy has a deep love for all things creative. On any given day, you’ll find her knee-deep in her latest creative endeavor, with projects ranging from sewing and crafts to home decor and kid-friendly ideas. Amy believes that everyone, regardless of skill level or experience, possesses the ability to create something beautiful, and Positively Splendid was born of her passion for helping others harness their innate creative potential.
Once again, my sweet mom (known around here as Mama Reita) has gone above and beyond with the girls’ Halloween outfits this year. Really, does it get any cuter?
Oh, how Cecily adores her big sis.
Mama Reita is a true applique wiz, and she always finds the cutest designs! This candy corn design is from DigiStitches, and it is available as a FREE download for all of their Facebook fans. Isn’t that generous?
Mom used our all-time favorite A-Line Tops and Dresses pattern from the Scientific Seamstress, and the coordinating blouse is worked up from the Lulu pattern by Juvie Moon. I cannot say enough how much I adore these little blouses! They are perfect for putting under jumpers like this, but they are also terrific for layering to extend the life of summer sundresses.
To round out Miss Charlotte’s outfit, I picked up a pair of fun knee socks from Target. These will also be making an appearance in her Halloween costume this year. 🙂
