We hope you had a fun and safe 4th of July! It seems the big new sewing theme in our patterns group this week has switched over to Minions -- how fun is that?! I'm taking my two youngest kiddos to see the new movie tomorrow and we can hardly wait. We might even have to stop at the fabric store on the way home so we can get in on the Minion sewing fun too! That's not all that's going on around here at CKC. We also had some groundbreaking new releases this week that have given our fans a lot to talk about! Let's take a look...
Blakely's Bubble Ruffle Skirt combines a lot of our favorite features into one adorable outfit!
This high-waisted skirt is the perfect choice for your girly girl, with layers of beautiful bubble ruffles and a wide sash. The detachable suspenders with flutters are the perfect combination of fun and feminine. Paired with a crop top or tank, it's sure to turn heads where ever she goes!
And now -- Stop on-lookers in their tracks with the all-new stunning Vera's Hi-Lo Fan Top! This gorgeous, unique design features a perfectly fitted woven fabric button-up shell, and a beautiful, flowy criss-cross chiffon fan accent sweeping the front! Instructions for built-in sash ties are included... or wear it with your favorite belt! Be one-of-a-kind and best-dressed at your next event!
And now, introducing the first two patterns of our new pageant line at CKC! Cherri's Rounded Cupcake Skirt and Odette's Off-Shoulder Flare Bodice are now available! This skirt is perfect for everything from pageants to birthdays! The bodice is the companion to the skirt, for the perfect off shoulder pageant dress. A decorating pattern for the bodice shell is in the works; and in the meantime feel free to join the CKC pageant sewing room to discuss tips and tricks and everything you need to know to get pageant-ready using CKC!
