Happy Birthday to CKC! Would you believe that Create Kids Couture has now been in business for FIVE years?! That's pretty awesome! We grew from two owners (Tiffany and Shannon) in 2011, into a design team of over twenty! And we are so thankful to you, our fans and customers, who make all of this possible. To celebrate, we have a big sale going on, plus we extended right on into the 4th of July sale. More details on that in a bit, but first let's take a look at some of the happenings at CKC earlier in the week:
You will do a double take with Nina’s Reversible Scalloped Dress and Top! It's like having two dresses in one! Nina’s features a beautiful fitted bodice with a scalloped neckline. The scalloped edges on the back bodice and the skirt add that little bit of whimsy along with the unique criss-crossed straps. Nina’s charm will allow you to create that beautiful one of a kind outfit you want to create. Nina's comes in Dolls, Babies, and Girls!
Next up is Milyanna’s Ruffled Chiffon skirt! It has three layers of chiffon which make it full and delightfully twirly. It's dressy enough for special occasions, while still comfortable and durable for family celebrations, tea parties, dancing, and birthday parties. Pair Milyanna's with ballet flats or cowgirl boots, and this gorgeous skirt is sure to become one of her favorites!
And then we have Nola's! Nola's Cami Top, Slip, and High-Low Dress is going to be your go-to pattern this summer! It sews up in under an hour, no joke! Nola's features multiple lengths including top, slip, and high-low, a quick FOE trim, and a ruffle option. This pattern is great for layering or wearing alone. Chiffon, lace, or lightweight knits are recommended for the ruffles. Be sure to grab Nola's during the sale!
We have a brand new designer on board with us now for Cut Files, the fabulous Sunnie Wicker! This week we released six new cut files she designed and as you can see, they are amazing! This is just a few of them though, so be sure to come on over to the website and see what's new. I think you're going to love how her personality and style show up in her designs, and now you can use them to make your own creations!

Ah, yes, it's finally time to talk about the sale! As I mentioned earlier, CKC is celebrating our 5th anniversary by having a big, huge, ginormous sale! We originally announced the sale as July 1-2, but now we have decided to extend it on through to the 4th of July!
How awesome is that?! Every single pattern on our website can be purchased for 50% off using the code CKCis5. The code will expire at 9 pm est on Monday, July 4. This gives you plenty of time to shop, browse, spend time with family for the holiday, and shop some more! You won't see a sale this big until Black Friday rolls around again, so be sure to stock up on all the patterns you'll want for summer AND on into the school year!
We have hundreds of patterns to choose from in a wide variety of size ranges and styles, so don't be afraid to branch out into something you've never made before. What I love about stocking up on PDF patterns is that they don't take up any space on your shelves or in the closet, and you have them at your fingertips any time you feel like creating!
This wraps up our Weekly Wound Up. We wish you a very Happy 4th of July Weekend. Be safe and have a fabulous time celebrating!
