The calendar tells us that it is officially Summer now, and the thermometer agrees! Summer is the perfect time to show off all those cute mama made clothes while we're out and about -- plus the hot hours of the day are my favorite time to stay indoors and get some creative sewing done! Our new CKC releases this week are perfect for summer, and of course we have a big sale coming up for the holiday too. Let's take a look!
Madeline's Reversible Scallop Shorts are available in Girl, Tween and Women sizes! You get to use not one, but two of your favorite fabrics to create two completely different looks with just one pair. Madeline's are completely reversible! And with clear directions to create a flat, low front, this will be your go-to pattern for shorties. They also look fabulous with the hem folded up and pressed for a cuffed look!
Our super popular Danika's One Piece Top and Dress is now available in toddler, tween and plus sizes! Just like the women's pattern, Danika's is great for displaying your favorite fabric, and construction is a breeze! It's so comfy and stunning at the same time!
We released four plus size patterns yesterday! First, we have Lexie’s Retro Halter Dress; perfect for all you retro fans, and so flattering. Then we have Lyric’s Knit High Low Ruffle dress. You can shorten this one to tunic length or even just leave off the ruffle and wear it with leggings. Next, we have Amber’s Simple Halter Dress and Top. This one fits amazing with the elastic back. If you have been scared to wear halter dresses before, you should make an exception for this one. It has amazing support helping to keep the weight off of your neck. Finally, we have Faith’s Shirred Sundress, with and without a ruffle option. It also features a wider strap option to help cover straps. Because these four patterns released just yesterday, they're still on sale for 30% off!

Last week we released Rosetta's Ruffle Neck Dress and Top and it has been a huge hit so far! Some of our fans thought it would also be really cute without the neck ruffle, to have a simple version and also to please kids with sensory issues. We knew that it would be a pretty easy alteration to make to the pattern, so we came up with this little tutorial for you!
