Is your weekend off to a good start? Today feels like Tuesday to me; I'm not sure where that entire week went! Looking over all we accomplished, though, I think I must have been too busy to notice each day pass. We have a lot of amazing projects going on at CKC! Some of them are announced below (like our gorgeous new Lookbook) and some are still to come! Follow along closely so you don't miss out!
On Monday we released some new doll patterns. First let's look at the girls: Aria’s One-Shoulder Dress is purely gorgeous with its oversized bow closure, three dress lengths, and generous ruffles. Your little girl will love spinning her doll around as they play! Makenna’s Bubble Jumper is perfect for spring/summer with its ruched bodice, flutter sleeves, and bubble shorts that have a keyhole design and cute cuffs. And of course both these new doll patterns have matching girl sizes available!
We now have doll patterns in boy styles! How fun! These are the first two sets of many and they fit 15" and 18" dolls, as well as many other stuffed animals or buddies he might have.
Elijah’s Knit Cardigan and Ryker’s Woven Skinny Pants come together in one pattern! You will love the trendy fit and fun details that match the boy versions! The second set available is Charles’ Prince Jacket and Patrick’s Dress Pants. The jacket includes both versions with those adorable tails, and the pants have lots of fun details right down to the faux welt pockets and tuxedo stripes. Both sets are perfect for dress up or everyday trendy wear for their dolls!
Mae's Tote-n-Play is an adorable paper doll style play mat that folds up neatly into a small tote bag. It includes different hairstyles and clothing for both boys and girls! The mat includes pockets with velcro, making it easy to store all those pieces too. Mae's is a brilliant way to use your scraps and provide your kiddos with hours of play! It's durable, washable, and sure to be a hit.
Then we also have a new pattern for Toddlers, Tweens, and Women! Leslie's Lace-Option Layering Tank is made of comfy knit and optional stretch lace trim, and can be worn alone or layered with her favorite tops and accessories. The long, almost-tunic length style makes it perfect for active girls and fashion divas alike. The neck and arm holes have a professional-style binding with no exposed seams. And we just love the extra option of stretch lace trim at the bottom! You're going to want a bunch of these for year-round wear. Be sure to get all the sizes you need in Girls, Tweens, and Women!
Our first summer shorts pattern is here! Gemma's Lace Shorts are available in Babies, Girls, Tween, and Women's sizes. These adorable shorts have a fun and simple design that will be perfect for any spring or summer outfit. The comfort of knit on the inside layer and stylish overlay with lace venise trim make these shorts stand out in you and your little one's wardrobe. Be sure to get them this weekend while they're 30% off!
