Melanie Sew-Along // Halloween Inspiration and Templates

Friday, October 16, 2015

Yesterday, we announced there would be a Halloween prize component of the Melanie Sew-Along. Patty LOVES Halloween, so we're including that little incentive. At first we weren't sure where the Melanie Dress would fit in with Halloween looks, so I started gathering a few ideas I could share with you. Let's start with the blank canvas of the dress and work our way from there.

Speaking of blank canvas, doesn't that front panel just scream for an embellishment!?! It's the perfect spot for applique or stencils and paint. When I mentioned this to Patty, she generously selected a few of her Halloween Silhouette designs for you to use as free templates!!

Cat Template

Ghost Template

Jackolantern Template

Spider Template

How about letting the accessories do all the talking?!? I love making everyday dresses for my daughters, and bringing out the costume side with the accessories. Try one of these headband ideas. Click the link below the image for the full tutorial.

Finally, if you have a little super hero fan, a spiderman inspired dress might be just the thing! It's a perfect way to play up those cute side panels, and you could use the spider template above!

Don't forget that coupon code MELSAL2015 gets 30% off in the Etsy shop until Monday, 10/19, at midnight EST.
