Happy Mother's Day weekend from Create Kids Couture! This Sunday is the perfect day to show appreciation to the women in our lives who have influenced us for good (who may or may not be our biological mothers!) We hope everyone has a great weekend after this busy week! We have a lot of great things to share with you today.
Our first new release this week was Keeley's Ruffled Bow Dress! This pattern is perfect for your girly girl, with its ruffles upon ruffles and its large center bow. She will want to wear it over and over again just for the twirling factor!
On Tuesday we released May's pattern of the month! This is Elliette's Boutique Apron Skirt and it is a quick sew that your little girl is sure to love! You can use two coordinating fabrics for a sophisticated look, or mix it up with different prints from your stash for a funky, unique look that can be worn anywhere!
We had four women's pattern releases this week! First is the much anticipated Bethany's Fancy Party Dress. This dress is amazing with and without the chiffon overlay, and it has elastic casings down the back of the bodice for a more fitted look. Bethany's includes two bodice options and two flutter sleeve options! Next we have Tiffany's Sweetheart Patchwork Dress. This favorite is gorgeous in spring colors and has so many options with the patchwork. Next is Antoinette's Double Layer Twirly Skirt in Women's and Women's Plus sizes. It's another great skirt to wear every day. Treat yourself to something special this Mother's Day - you deserve handmade too!
And last but not least, we released our amazing new princess dress that every little girl dreams of having! Elise's Everyday Princess Dress is inspired by Frozen and made simple for you! Elise's features a detachable cape with two length options. But this dress isn't just for Elsa-inspired dresses! Just wait until you see what else our testers did with this dress. Hint: follow the link above and click "Image Gallery" when you get there. So many amazing princesses to see!

It's time for the Half-Off Friday sale! This week we have chosen Demi's Ruffled Peasant Dress to be 50% off all day Friday. This pretty peasant dress has three sleeve length options, a pretty sash, and a ruffled twirly skirt that is perfect for fancy occasions or just twirling around the yard. You can choose either elastic or shirring on the neck and sleeves. You and your little girl will both love Demi's!
That wraps up our Friday Recap for this week! Again, we wish you all a Happy Mother's Day this weekend.
