The school year is winding down for our kiddos and it has been such a busy week! Track meets and field trips and recitals... we sure are busy mamas! It's been a full week for us at CKC too and if you haven't already seen the results, you are going to LOVE them! Let's take a look:
On Monday we released two adorable new dresses. On the left we have Clover's Criss-Cross Tank and Dress, which has a ruffled neckline and is available as a top, dress, or maxi. On the right we have Luna's Full Circle Skirt Dress which has a square neckline and beautiful flutter sleeves that come together in back for a pretty bow.
Then on Tuesday we released Lexie's Retro Halter Dress! Lexie's features a unique bodice, ruched waist, and super cute twirly skirt for one amazing rockabilly look!
On Wednesday we released three patterns for Tweens. First is Pippa's Poncho which is great in the summer as a beach cover up and also in the fall with leggings and boots! Next we have Atoinette's Double Layer Twirly Skirt that is perfect for everyday wear or a special occasion. And last we have Nicolette's Double Ruffle Capris and Pants. These are a favorite in our girls' sizes and definitely a great addition to your tweens' wardrobe!
Just yesterday we released two more patterns! Both are knit and great for beginners! Holly's Knit Ruffle Shorts have an adorable ruffle at the waist and cute ruched ruffles on each leg. It is perfect for everyday summer play and even gymnastics! Then Harlow's Infinity Dress has two dress lengths and is convertible because it can be tied hundreds of different ways! So versatile! We even posted a video today that shows some of the ways that Harlow's can be tied. You can watch that video here. Harlow's and Holly's are both on sale for 30% off until 7 pm today so be sure to grab them right away before you forget!
On the Blog
Our most recent Serging 101 episode teaches you how to prepare and thread your new serger to do a rolled hem. Once you do your first rolled hem you will wonder why you waited so long to try! We have two videos in the tutorial so you can see both a Brother and a Juki in action.
If you are new to CKC and full of great questions on how to get started, we have compiled a bunch of helpful blog posts into one source, making it easier for you to get started with your first patterns. We love our newbies and we even chose Karen Diann, a first time CKC user, as our Fan of the Month for May! Karen made these adorable costumes above using her first ever CKC patterns! We know you can do amazing things too.

CKC wants to wish everyone a Happy Memorial Day Weekend! While it is unofficially the start of summer for us here in the U.S., and all the excitement that brings, please take a moment to remember the true reason of this holiday. We honor those who have selflessly served to give us our freedom.
Everyone loves Half-Off Friday! And guess what, we have decided to add onto our HOF tradition by making our women's patterns a part of it every week too! So from now on each Friday we will be choosing one girls' pattern and one women's pattern to be on sale for 50% off!
So to start off, we are excited to announce that our women's Half-Off Friday pattern is Peony's Sweetheart Maxi Dress for Women! This maxi dress is perfect for any occasion and you will love its fit that is flattering for all body types. You can get Peony's Women's Dress for 50% off all day Friday.
Isn't it gorgeous?
Finally, our girls' Half-Off Pattern for this week is Ophelia's Flutter Sleeve Ruffled Dress. Ophelia's is a fun and fashionable summer dress that can be done either with all the fancy chest ruffles (so cute!) or without the ruffles for a more simple look. The pattern is on sale for 50% off all day today, so be sure to grab it now. And don't forget that tiered pricing goes into effect when you buy 3 or more patterns. We have so many great ones on sale today! Here are some more views of Ophelia's:
That's all for our Friday Recap. Thank you for another great week at CKC and again we want to wish you a Happy Memorial Day Weekend.
