Is your March off to a good start? Ours certainly is at CKC. We have had a productive week - AND I just looked at my calendar and saw that Spring is only two weeks away! That is a huge deal to us in cold weather states. Finally, it's time to get out those spring patterns and have some fun!
Speaking of Spring patterns, we are definitely going to be needing this one! Iris' Frilly Ruffle Shorts were released this week and they are beyond adorable. They are super comfy and perfect for wearing at the playground or anywhere the warm weather takes her!
This week we also released two women's patterns. First we have Heidi's Hi-Low Peplum Top in sizes XS to XL. It is perfect for every-day wear, quick to sew, and has several sleeve options. You will love it! Our second new release is Brooklyn's Tiered Sundress in Women's Plus. With its shirred bodice and sleeves and its three pretty tiers, this dress will be perfect for you to wear on Easter!
On the Blog
Congratulations to Amanda Gerard of Kylie's Closet! She is our Boutique of the Month for March. On Monday's blog you can see some of her unique creations and get inspired by the workings of her boutique.
To celebrate our new baby line at CKC, we have a fun tutorial on the blog this week for all you baby lovers out there! (These will also make fantastic gifts for those of us who don't have babies of our own.) Our pacifier leash will keep those little treasures clean, safe, and stylish!
On Wednesday we did a Tips and Tricks blog where we taught a technique called Chain Stitching, which can save us some time and money on our sewing projects! You can read about it and see the step-by-step pictures here on the blog.
If you have been trying to figure out the difference between all the sheer fabrics available, then this blog post is for you! Each of the dresses in the collage above uses a different kind of sheer fabric. Do you know which ones are which? You will after you read this blog post!
Did you see that we're having an Easter Flash Sale? It ends at noon today so don't wait too long or you might miss out! These styles are perfect for Easter outfits and most of them also have the Women's, Tweens', and Doll's patterns on sale too. I love getting all matchy matchy on Easter!
If you weren't aware of our Flash Sale, make sure you check in often on our Facebook Fan Page! We like to post flash sales and sneak peeks occasionally but it seems that with new fan page regulations a lot of our fans don't see our posts! The best way around that is to check in on your own when you get a chance. We update our page many times a day and we'd love to have you visit!
Speaking of sales, if you haven't yet downloaded and printed this awesome 2014 CKC Calendar for yourself, you might want to do that soon! (Wink wink.) You'll be glad you did.
Woo-hoo! It's Half-Off Friday time! I love this part of my job. I know you're all skim reading and trying to skip past all this blah blah blah so you can get to the announcement already. So here it is! Today's HOF pattern is Melinda's Ruffled T-Shirt!
Melinda's is a comfy knit t-shirt that will pair perfectly with any of our spring and summer bottoms. (Ooh, think of the Iris' pattern that was just released!) Melinda's comes with a tank option, short ruffle sleeves, and long sleeves! The adorable front bib embellishment is optional as well. Your little girl will love looking dressed up while feeling completely casual! Melinda's is on sale today for 50% off, making it just $3!
Grab it while you can, and don't forget tiered pricing with our Easter Sale! Spring is right around the corner and if we start now we'll get those outfits ready just in time!
That wraps up our week in review.
