Candy corn Tights and T-shirt

Candy corn is not just for eating you know.  In this house we wear it too.  I like making my daughters clothing, well not actually “making” but dying and embellishing purchased or hand me downs.  She asked me for a candy corn dress and I could not find a plain white dress to dye so I opted for a shirt and tights.  She was quite pleased.
