There is something extra sweet about patchwork. Just a glimpse of it makes me nostalgic. Maybe it's the memory of wrapping up in my grandma's handmade quilts. And have you noticed how eye-catching patchwork skirts and dresses always are? Maybe it's the fact that we get to see so many pretty fabrics all at once! I am absolutely in love with Tiffany's Patchwork Dress that was just released in Women's sizes:
Did you see the amazing fabric?! Nikki used the Sweet as Honey fabric line for her dress and I think it turned out absolutely stunning. Not only that, but she loved the fabric so much that she ordered more to make matching patchwork for her daughters! We'll show you more of that in a minute.
The designer of the Sweet as Honey fabric is Bonnie Christine of the Going Home to Roost Blog. She invited us to be a guest on her blog and we would LOVE for you to go read the post and become a follower of her blog! Bonnie has a wealth of creative ideas on a wide variety of topics and her photos are absolutely gorgeous. Not only that, but we also have a surprise for you on her blog!
You may be familiar with our free pattern for Paisley's Patchwork Skirt for Girls and Dolls. Well guess what! We have now made Paisley's Patchwork Skirt available in Tweens, Women, and Women Plus sizes too! The link to those patterns is on the Going Home to Roost blog where we did our guest post. Be sure to download them today - you know you're going to want them! (We will be adding the link to our Tutorials page here as well.)
Nikki does such a great job with our women's and tweens patterns at CKC. (This is her pictured above.) And doesn't she have a beautiful family? Nikki likes to stay out of the limelight so I need to brag for her a little bit because she is absolutely amazing. If you have not yet tried our women's, women's plus, or tweens' patterns yet, you are definitely missing out and I encourage you to make something for yourself! I can honestly say that some of my favorite clothes come from our CKC line -- from skirts to tops, to the best-fitting swimsuit I've ever owned! Nikki is my hero and I still test patterns for her even though I already have my hands full of sewing projects. My daughter and I can't resist!
Alright, now don't forget to go visit the Going Home to Roost Blog and check out Bonnie's offerings, more up close photos of this fabric, and of course our new FREE patterns for the up-sized Paisley's.
