With less than two weeks until Halloween, how are all those adorable costumes coming along?! I am personally working on a Maleficent, an Angry Bird, and a pirate costume this weekend. The two older boys are still arguing over who gets to be "TNT" (as in, a red stick of dynamite) so I'm not sure where that will take me! For now, let's take a look at all that's been going on at CKC this week!
Tatum's Tunic Top is a new tunic design that is fully lined for comfort and features the use of tulle, chiffon, or lace to get this adorable 2-toned look! Tatum's is a great beginner pattern to get you comfortable with new fabric options and also to try out some of those fun holiday sheers!
We have four new Tween patterns this week! In the photo above we have Dawn's Darling Fitted Top, with a variety of options -- and it pairs perfectly with with our new Stacy's Sassy Ruffle Skirt! Stacy's is full of girly, twirly ruffles that she is sure to love!
In Tweens we also released Clarissa's Belted Pants and Capris! This pattern has a special tween upgrade of added pockets and slimmer legs! Both the unique ruffle version and the simple (no ruffle) version will have you making many of these for your girl to wear. And finally we have Valerie's Shirred Bolero, another versatile addition to your tween's closet. This can be worn over tanks or dresses, and with multiple sleeve lengths it will be perfect for all seasons!
Cameron's Cape Set For Dogs was released just yesterday and it is perfect for small to medium breed dogs (sizes XS-XL). This adorable cape set has so many different options to create unique looks for your perfect little pooch! The cape is built into the harness and includes an option to add a D-Ring Loop so you can attach your leash. This year you'll be able to take your fur-baby Trick-or-Treating with the rest of the family! The Velcro enclosures make it easy to put on and take off and it’s perfect for both long and short haired dogs. Hurry & grab it while it’s 30% off (only $3.50!) through Sunday.

This weekend we have two patterns on sale for 50% off that pair perfectly together for Fall!
For the top we have chosen Maisy's Ruffled Peasant Tunic. Aside from its adorable tiered ruffles and tunic length, we also love that Maisy's has a built in sash that ties in back and three sleeve lengths to choose from! And look at that adorable sleeve-hem ruffle! Maisy's is perfect for the playground, school, and even more formal affairs.
And why not pair that adorable top with a new pair of Jenna's Lace Ruffle Pants and Capris?! Jenna's can be made out of a variety of fabrics, from denim and corduroy for cool weather, to softer flannels or wovens if she prefers. Our weekend half-off sale on Jenna's includes dolls, babies, girls, and tween sizes too! They will be on sale for 50% off all weekend long.
We hope you have a happy weekend of sewing, and don't forget to share your creations with us in our patterns group! We love to see what you're making.
