Every year I start feeling giddy right about now. The kids are counting down toward the end of school (and let's face it, so am I!) and it's also my daughter's birthday, our anniversary, Mother's Day, and I even love Memorial Day. It's also time to start planting gardens in my neck of the woods. Plus add on all the kids' field trips, track meets, recitals, and school projects. Whew! So I'm not sure whether I'm excited that it's here or excited that it might all calm down soon. Either way, a new month also brings in new pattern releases, new monthly mixup bundles, and new cute clothes to sew for our kids. So now I think we should take a look at what's new at CKC this month!
Our first new release of the week is Henry's Retro Sun Romper. I absolutely adore this pattern! Henry’s is fully lined and has two bib styles that give two different looks. The rounded bib gives a classic, retro look for the tinies, while the squared bib looks more grown-up and modern for the bigger boys. Both versions have a roomy diaper-cover style bottom with fully enclosed elastic at the legs and optional snap crotch. And don’t forget our favorite feature of Henry’s - those straps that cross in back and fasten onto a pair of adorable buttons! They are super cute, adjustable for fit, and easy to achieve. Your baby boy will be as happy as a clam in his comfy retro sun romper.
Also perfect for spring and summer, we released five new embroidery designs this week!
They are Spiral Rainbow, Pinwheel Flowerpot, Cupcake, Sunshine, Caffeine Carpool Cocktails, and even our Cross Stitch Garden Alphabet that you can use to spell anything you choose! These designs are great for clothing, bags, decor, and more.
Ysabel's Sophisticated Skort is sure to be a trendy staple in your pattern collection. It’s perfect for outside play or even church. The front panels give it a skirt appearance when in fact it’s really shorts! Kids love the pockets too! Your girl's wardrobe will not be complete without this fabulous accessory.
Evangeline's Elegant Ballgown is perfect for for princess dresses, flower girl dresses, Victorian dresses, Renaissance dresses, Southern Belles and so much more! The pattern features two fitted bodice options: simple and pleated. It also has sleeveless and flutter sleeve options, beautiful side bustles with lace and rosette trim options and a stunning scoop back that can use either a snap or a button. Evangeline’s is designed to be worn over a hoop skirt to achieve that over the top full skirt, perfect for twirling.
Are you looking for a sweet vintage style? Paylin's Pleated Dress and Top released just yesterday! This pattern has it all, with sleeveless, short, elbow, and long sleeve options; romper, dress, top or gown options; and a gorgeous pleated front with ruffles adorning it! This pattern has a button back and has extra ease for getting it on and off easily! Paylin's is available in babies and girls sizes, and you can get them for 30% off through Sunday night!
