Welcome to September! The calendar tells me that Fall is just right around the corner. As hard as that is to believe, we are starting to see those fall shades of oranges, reds, and browns come out in the adorable outfits our readers are posting in our patterns group. I love the changing seasons! Let's take a look at what else is new at CKC this week.
For September's Pattern of the Month, we were excited to introduce Darcie's Apron Bubble Knot Top! This is a unique pattern you won't find anywhere else, and it combines three of our favorite looks- knot tops, bubble skirts, and aprons. It's adorable on the tiny girls too!
This week was also our women's pattern release day! and we released three new patterns! First is Women's Flora's Flowing high-low dress! This is a gorgeous dress with a fitted knit top. The skirt on it can be done in sheer fabric with a lining under too. Next we have Heidi's Women's Plus Hi-low Peplum top! This top is so flattering your closet will be full of them in no time. It features multiple sleeve lengths with an option for circle sleeves and a hi-low peplum. We also have Abby's Women's Plus nightgown and Capris/Shorts. This is a great pajama pattern for year-round. It is made to be used with either knit or satin fabric.
On the Blog
Look at this quick and clever little back-to-school project we have for you this week on the blog! It's a bookmark *and* a pen holder -- all made from your favorite fabric -- to give to your little notebook-carrying friends! And why not make a couple for yourself while you're at it?
It's reversible. It's sturdy. It's safe. And it's easy to whip up in no time! This is the best little super hero cape ever and you can get the pattern for FREE on the CKC blog! The cape fastens in front with your choice of buttons, velcro, or snaps. My little boy loves his cape - he's been wearing it night and day.
