One of the things I love about CKC is the wide variety of patterns we have available. Take a look at our new releases this week, for example: A knit dress, woven dress, skirt, swimsuit, and even a totally awesome backpack. How's that for options? Plus we have a contest, a sew-along, and some other goodies for you.
Meet Marigold's Mix and Match Knit Dress & Maxi! The fitted knit bodice features knit trim and a fabulous ruffle on the back bodice. The ruffles continue with a diagonal ruffle to accent the blocking in the front and or back of the skirt with a final ruffle at the bottom for that extra flounce and fun. The pattern includes directions for skirt and maxi lengths. Whether you are up-cycling a cute T-shirt or looking for a unique and versatile pattern for your beautiful knits, you are going to love this pattern and make it over and over again! Sizes 2T-14 are included.
Jency's Pintuck Dress and Top boasts a beautiful, unique, fitted-bodice with a button or snap back closure. This dress is for woven fabrics such as cottons, and you can choose sleeveless, short, 3/4 or long sleeves with cute cuff detailing. There are also options for a top length double skirt, simple accented skirt, or pintuck accented skirt. Whew, just think of all the possibilities!
August’s All Purpose Backpack comes in three different sizes. It is fully customizable with options to add a total of six storage pockets. Dress things up by adding ruffles to the exterior for a fashionable flair or leave them off to create a streamlined look. August is truly the one backpack pattern you need for your whole family! This year your student can go to school in style with a durable, heavy duty backpack he/she will love!
Bentlee’s Button-up Skirt is going to quickly become a staple in your girl's closet! This fun and quick-to-sew pattern features two skirt options (banded and regular), a flat front waistband with elastic in back, and a cute sash that can tie either in front or in back. The buttons/snaps in front are super adorable as a finishing touch. Bentlee's is so adorable that I bet you can't make just one!
And finally, we have Uniqua's Swimsuit for Tweens and Dolls! Just like the Girls' version, this unique swimsuit is a show stopper! It’s gives the appearance of a one piece in front and a two piece in back making it our first ever monokini pattern! Dad is sure to love this coverage while little one is sure to love the fun ruffle with pompom trim. There's still plenty of time to swim, so be sure to grab Uniqua's for her and her doll while it's on sale!
