It has been a productive week for us here at CKC! It sounds like our fans have been busy too. We enjoy seeing your creations and hearing from you. Here's a review of all that's been going on around here at CKC this past week:
This week we released FIVE new Tween patterns!
First up is Coco's Fabric Pettiskirt for Tweens. Your tween will love wearing this pettiskirt! I know mine does. It is full of bounce and twirl, and it is perfect layered under another skirt to add fullness, or simply worn by itself as a skirt. Just look at it - this is no ordinary pettiskirt!
Next is Cassidy's Corset Cover Dress for Tweens. This cover dress is like an accessory to add onto any of our peasant dresses. I included this montage so we can see all the many ways it can be worn - even with the corset in the back. Tweens seem to love a layered look - this is perfect for them! It can really dress up any style.
Oh how I love wearing my own Felicity's top. And now it's available in Tweens! This gorgeous top has beautiful details with shirring and a perfectly placed ruffle. With three sleeve options, you can be sure that your tween will be pleased with her Felicity's Simple Peasant Top.
Next up in our new releases is Joy's Lace Twirly Dress for Tweens. Sooo many ruffles! This gorgeous peasant dress will have your tween twirling around the yard and feeling like a princess. We're never too old to feel like a princess! (Just imagine how full and gorgeous Joy's would be with Coco's pettiskirt layered underneath it. WOW.) What a perfect dress for the upcoming holidays.
And our final new release for this week is Lorelai's Tiered Ruffle Neck Dress for Tweens. The name says it all! This darling dress has a sweet ruffle at the neck and then beautiful tiers, making it a comfortable and unique dress for your tween.
On the Blog
This week on the blog we had a really fun post about two outfit mash ups that Shannon and Tiffany did together. On a new YouTube video they explain how they did them and even show outtakes from their super fun photo shoot. You can watch the video here on the Mash Up Video blog post!
Also on the blog this week we began our big, Big, BIG - Gift Card Giveaway! If you haven't entered yet, it is definitely time to! We have a lot of amazing sponsors and the Rafflecopter entry form is right there on the blog too, so make sure you check it out on the Holiday Gift Cards Giveaway blog post!

You can download the pattern for free, and even enter a photo contest that ends on Sunday evening (we extended the deadline) to win a prize. This pattern goes from 6 months up to Girls 8!
And last but not least, yesterday we did a blog post on Calculating Fabric Requirements, to explain all you need to know about the charts - including how we come up with the measurements in the first place. It's not such a secret after all!
Have you been following along with our 15 Days of Thanks-Giving Sale? It has been incredible! We are now on Day 12 and we are featuring our four ruffle fabric outfits - all half off for today only! They are Bella's, Jade's, Josie's, & Natasha's. You can find them all on the CKC Website's sale page, here.

The December Sew-Along will be... Joy's Lace Twirly Dress! Perfect for a holiday dress! And that also happens to be our Half-Off Friday pattern this week! So the girl's pattern is half off today only, and the NEW tween and doll patterns are also available at 30% off!
