It has been cool and stormy here all week. That's not normal for July in this area and my neighbors are complaining a bit. I feel a little bad realizing how much I enjoyed this week though, because I was able to stay indoors and sew instead of doing yardwork and making trips to the pool! We can all take a little break from the hustle and bustle of life, and sewing is my happy place. Can you relate? With all our new patterns this week, we have a lot to be happy about!
Our first new release this week is all about Summer! This one will take you from the ball field to the bike trail and everything in between! Summer's Sportswear Set is perfect for all those outdoor activities you love! This pattern includes woven shorts and a knit shirt that are so comfortable you will want to make a set to use everyday of the week. Available in girl, tween, women, and plus!
Coraleigh's Reversible Pinafore is now available in both baby and girl sizes! Coraleigh's puts a spin on the classic pinafore with its optional scallop trim and back tie closure. Pair it with her favorite bloomers or shorts and she will be all ready to go! Coraleigh's is adorable on warm summer days and also perfect for layering when cool weather comes around.

You have probably seen upcycling tutorials that have you use a t-shirt or woven top to make a kids' outfit. Well today we're going to show you how to take a pair of adult *pants* and use them as the fabric for your pattern pieces! It works great with jeans, khaki's, pj's etc! Come learn how on the blog!

It's sale time! This weekend we are featuring a fun knit pattern that is great for summer and fall. Clairbel's High-Low Capris are super cute and add instant interest to her outfits with minimal effort on your part! These unique bottoms can be paired with store bought tees or her favorite CKC tops. Here's your chance to get Clairbel's pattern for 50% off!
Our second half-off pattern this weekend is Anniston's Dress in both girl and tween sizes! Anniston's is a modern take on a CKC classic. We've taken the much loved Paris bodice and modified it to be double-shouldered with a fun criss-cross design on the back. It also has a cute peplum and banded skirt, making it a perfect dress for many occasions!
And with all these fantastic sales, don't forget the bonus of our tiered pricing! The more you buy, the more you save!
That's all I have for you in this Weekly Wound Up! I hope you have an enjoyable weekend of sewing! I know I will.
