How are you handling the cold weather? It's not quite as fun to be surrounded by snow now as it was last month. (Something about the holidays...) My kids have been taking turns being sick at home this week so it feels like we're stuck somewhere between winter vacation and homework central! But that hasn't slowed down the excitement at CKC of course, and it seems like we have a bunch of NEW announcements for you today. I think you're going to like them quite a lot. Are you ready?
Winter's Hooded Wrap is now available in Toddler, Tween, and Doll sizes! (This should help with the cold!) It is a hat and scarf all in one, and it even has pockets to keep their hands warm. No more losing gloves here and there! Plus Winter's comes with all kinds of fun options to add to the hood, including floppy ears, pointed ears, rounded ears, antlers, dino spikes, horse mane, and more!
Vada's Comfy Bubble Tunic and Dress also released this week, in Baby, Toddler, Tween, and Doll sizes! It is such a fun and simple pattern, with lots of options to add if you choose. Vada's is all knit with a lightly gathered bubble skirt that is adorable and flattering on all sizes. You can choose from short sleeves, long sleeves, or cuff sleeves to create a look all your own. Make Vada's a part of your family for 30% off this weekend only!

This charming, one-shoulder dress is an easy choice for every occasion. A beautifully simple design helps you to create the perfect dress in no time at all. A shirred back bodice creates a perfect fit, and we also include instructions for an elastic back if you aren't comfortable shirring. Paris' has a built-in pettiskirt, and you can make so many different looks depending on the fabric you choose. Be sure to get Paris' on sale this weekend!
Also on sale for 50% off this weekend is Piper's Stipwork Maxi Dress. What a gorgeous pattern for showing off a variety of fabrics! Piper's makes a cute little summer dress and you can also layer it for cooler weather to make it last even longer. You will love the sweet bodice and she will love to twirl. Finish it off with a pretty ruffle at the bottom and she will be super adorable for sure. Piper's is one of our CKC classics and you definitely want to grab it while it's half off!
Our final half-off pattern for this weekend is Blakely's Bubble Ruffle Skirt. Super cute, right?! This high-waisted skirt is the perfect choice for a girly girl, with three layers of beautiful bubble ruffles and a wide sash.
