Have you had a chance to go see the new Cinderella live action movie yet? I've heard amazing things about it and can't wait to go see it with my daughter tonight! I have thoroughly enjoyed seeing all the pictures posted by our CKC fans as their little girls get dressed up for their big night out. If you haven't seen our array of Elora's photos and videos yet, be sure to come visit our CKC Patterns Group! I can't get enough of all these beautiful princesses!
Celeste's Classic Boat Neck Dress and Top is our take on a classic look that your little girl fall in love with at first sight! It features a fitted boat neck bodice that buttons up the back, three sleeve length options or a sleeveless option, a sweetheart embellishment with a ruffle accent, a ruched ruffle accent for the neckline and hemline, trim band options for the bottom of the bodice or the hemline, an optional attached petticoat, and measurements for dress and top lengths. The attached petticoat adds a beautiful retro shape to the skirt that's perfect for special occasions, or you can leave it off for a more modern, everyday shape. There are 224 different dresses and 168 different tops that can be made using these combinations of sleeves and embellishments, and we know you'll have fun trying to figure them all out!
