As I was browsing through our patterns group today, I noticed that we are all interacting with posts about three different holidays at once! Halloween costumes are still being admired, plus there are a lot of Thanksgiving outfits and Christmas dresses in the works. It's such a festive time of year! Let's take a look at what we have been working on at CKC this past week to help you prepare for the excitement ahead.
On Monday we released Cammy's Wrap Bodice Dress. It features a wrap bodice with a fun ruffle along the top of it. The wrap is held in place with a tie and corset along the side of the bodice, for a unique off-centered look in the back. Cammy's ties at the neck with halter straps and the skirt has two ruffles that are simply charming.
Evie's Women Everyday Knit Top is super comfy and can be made into so many looks! The pattern features a regular scoop neck, cowl, or even an off-the-shoulder option! Evie's is for sizes XS-XL and also has a slimming line for the XS size. You have the option to add bands to the bottom and sleeves too! If you haven't made a top for yourself lately, it is time!
Maggie's dress and tunic is a charming and modern color block dress that is an easy choice for every occasion. An adorable keyhole neckline ensures a more fitted look without having to deal with zippers or buttonholes. The optional sash really make this dress special because it adds an interesting detail. Whether it's a party or family pictures, Maggie's will be the perfect dress for the occasion! And it is currently on sale for 30% off!
