A couple days ago I went on a quick business trip with my husband and while there I was able to meet up with an online sewing friend I "met" through CKC. (Hi, Anna!) She's a tester so her kiddo was really familiar to me, but we had never met -- and can I just say how much FUN it was to just sit and chat about CKC?! I love the little community we have with friends all over the place; all over the world, in fact! We just jumped right into a convo about our love of sewing and all things CKC. It's pretty awesome. Wherever you may be reading this, I hope you feel the community too! And if not yet, please stick around. We have lots of great things ahead!
Speaking of which, we have a bunch of new releases for you this week! Seven to be exact. Here goes:
Starla’s Stunning Top, Dress, and Maxi is a versatile pattern with three lengths. The beautiful lined bodice features ruffles and custom bias trim and ties that can be halter style or crossed in the back. The accessory ruffle belt is a creative addition that discreetly stays in place with unique thread belt loops (video tutorial included!). The top length can be finished with a simple trim or bias to match the bodice, and the dress and maxi lengths have a charming ruffle. Starla's comes in Baby and Girl sizes.
Our next pattern is super clever and your girl is going to love it! Ellen's Short Extenders are the perfect solution to keep those shorts school appropriate and daddy-approved! They are made of comfy knit and pretty lace. Sew some up today!
Next, we have Finley's Fabulous Frilly Maxi in girls' sizes 2T-14 and doll size. Finley's beautiful boat neck bodice buttons up the back and its front panel can be anything you want it to be. The full ruffly skirt is just about as frilly as it gets! You get a high-low top skirt, plus a separate full-length underskirt featuring three more layers of ruffles. Your girl is going to love this one!
And now for the dance wear... we have FOUR new dance wear patterns this week! First up is April's XOXO Leo. It has unique heart shaped cutouts on both sides while still offering full coverage! You can use lace in the cutouts for a peekaboo effect or use a solid spandex.
Next up, Crystann's is an all-new 2-piece dance set that you’re sure to fall in love with! This is perfect for everyday dance wear but can also be a fabulous costume. The top features a full coverage front with an exposed back with lace ties. The bottoms are the ever-popular hot pants featuring a normal and high-rise cut line. Your wardrobe will not be complete without this fabulous accessory!
Third up in dance wear is Laura's Loop-to-loop sports bra. Sports bras are so popular with dancers and this one is sure to make you stand out! Laura’s is so fun and unique with its loop-to-loop peekaboo sides and matching shoulders. One of our easiest dance patterns to date with no elastic; just fabric gets the job done!
Lastly, we have Leilani’s Leotard. It is perfect for not only ballet but for lyrical dance and costumes as well! This leotard features a unique tie back, cascading ruffle skirt and a full coverage bum. Take center stage with this show stopping leotard!
All four of these dance wear patterns are still on sale for 30% off!

You might have seen the "Not My Arms" Challenge videos floating around YouTube. They're hilaaaarious. Well, we've had a lot of questions asking us about the different types of fabric available, so we enlisted fabulous Lyla (the face) and her also-fabulous sister Kylie (the arms) to help us out today! Lyla knows what's up!

Have you had a chance to take a close look at our new set of Monthly Mixups?! For June we have six great patterns put together in FOUR different size ranges! Choose from Kids, Tweens, Adult, and Plus sizes (or all of them of course). The six patterns you will get in each size bundle are Hunter, Heidi, Chantelle, Uma, Zelda, and Nevaeh. These six patterns would normally add up to $46, but with the June Monthly Mixup you can get them all for just $18. That's pretty much a steal! We can't wait to see what you make with all these cute and comfy styles!
This weekend we have Faith's Shirred Sundress on sale for 50% off in all sizes! And when we say all sizes, we mean ALL sizes! Faith's is available for dolls, babies, girls, tweens, women, and plus sizes. Wow! And they are all half price through Sunday night. Faith's is a cute little summer dress that's perfect for play or even special occasions. A shirred bodice provides a comfortable fit and even allows it to stretch into next year! Be sure to get this classic yet unique boutique look while it's listed at half price!
Another one of our favorite patterns that is available in *all* sizes is Betty's Fifties Dress, and it just so happens to be on sale for 50% off this weekend too! Betty's is our take on a classic 50's style dress that the Suzy Homemaker in you will fall in love with. It features a sweetheart neckline with a classic circle skirt. It also includes various embellishments like a knot and collar bodice accents, halter or tie straps, corset or shirred back, and a ruffle for the skirt. With 48 dress combinations that can be made, we know you will have a lot of fun figuring them all out! Be sure to get in matching sizes for all the girls in your life!
