Our 4th of July was loaded with fun; how about yours? It looks like you all had a great time, because we had a bunch of amazing entries in our patriotic CKC contest. I will show you the winners in just a bit! We also have some exciting new patterns this week, a sew-along coming up on Monday, a brand new round of CKC Fabrics available, and more! Let's get to it!
First up this week, we have Georgia's! This is the perfect crop, top, or dress to add to your wardrobe. It features a mini corset that can tie in front or back, sleeves that can be worn on or off the shoulder, and a variety of lengths. Georgia is casual enough for daily use, but is also the perfect foundation for pageant theme-wear and outfit-of-choice.
Here's another view of Georgia's top, as a crop! And now you can also see the perfect pair for it, Peach's Reversible Tear-Away Skirt. The skirt is 100% reversible allowing one skirt to create two different looks. It is worn layered over shorts, keeping girls modest while playing hard. As a staple to any pageant wardrobe, Peach's allows for quick wardrobe changes on or off stage. This is perfect for everyday, outfit-of-choice or theme-wear looks.
Another adorable pairing for her favorite tops is Dixie's! Are you looking for a classic style with a little flare? These high-waisted shorts are just what you've been waiting for! The optional suspenders give these shorts a timeless style. An then of course there's those gorgeous ruffles!
We're not done yet! We have two more patterns that go great together.
Sassy's Sock Hop Circle Skirt comes in two different lengths (knee and calf), plus two hem options (rolled and bias). You can't go wrong with Sassy's! Dress it up or down using the included pettiskirt option. This skirt is great for everyday wear, costumes, and more!
Then if you want to dress up your circle skirt, we also just released our Poodle Silhouette Applique. It is an adorable poodle silhouette sure to be a hit! Three hoop sizes and multiple file types makes this perfect for everyone. Sassy's skirt and the Poodle design are both on sale for 30% off this weekend so be sure to grab both while you can!

Like I mentioned earlier, we had a LOT of amazing entries into our 4th of July contest! Thank you so much to everyone who participated! We couldn't pick just five winners, so above you can see the seven we chose. Aren't they fantastic?!
We just listed our new summer custom fabric line at CKC Fabrics! Run, don't walk, to our website because quantities are limited! Some fabrics are available in knits and wovens so look for that if you are interested in quilting cottons! All fabrics are ready-to-ship, plus we ship within 24-48 hours! (I personally love all those bright florals!)
Starting on Monday, we're going to have our first ever CKC BOYS Sew-along right in the CKC BOYS group! Baby Henry's is a super adorable pattern and we can't wait to sew it up with you! (Even if you don't have a baby, it makes great gifts!) Grab the pattern now (it's on sale) and get ready to play! Each day we will tell you which steps in the pattern to do. When you complete the daily steps you can post your progress photo for a chance to win a prize. After just a few days (and any help you need along the way) you will have your Henry's romper complete! Let's do this!
You can find the event by clicking here, but you may need to join the CKC BOYS group first if you're not already a member. We would love to have you come sew along with us!
Our first half-price pattern this weekend is Cammy's Wrap Bodice Dress! This corset style dress has a wrap bodice with a fun ruffle along the top of the wrap! The wrap is held in place with a tie and corset along the side of the bodice for a unique off-centered look in the back. Of course your girl is also going to love twirling in its flowy ruffle skirt. Don't miss out on getting Cammy's for 50% off this weekend! Sizes 6/12m to 8 included.
We also have Antoinette's Double Layer Twirly Skirt on sale for 50% off this weekend! I can honestly say this is one of my favorite patterns ever, both for myself and my daughter. All sizes of Antoinette's are on sale, from doll on up to women's plus! This skirt has beautiful layers, with a gathered skirt on top and a ruffled skirt underneath. You can pair it with any of your favorite storebought tops or of course any CKC styles you want to make to match! Grab all the sizes you need while they're half off!
As you're shopping the sales and new releases, don't forget about our automatic Tiered Pricing! The more you buy the more you save.
