Our kids had another snow day today. This is their seventh. It's been such a crazy winter! But even with all that freezing dreariness, at least I can come to CKC land and enjoy the beginnings of Spring by looking at all our new releases. That's the advantage of sewing for our kiddos or boutiques -- we get a head start on all the warm weather fun. So however it feels in your neck of the woods today, I hope you enjoy these Springtime new releases as much as I am!
Alexis' Bubble Dress/Top with Pleats offers a beautifully classic and tailored look. The fitted bodice has a snap or Velcro closure in back. Every dolly is sure to love the fun, full bubble skirt. But the beauty in this one is all about the details! Knife pleats create a completely unique look along the shoulders and inseam pocket. Alexis' is available in Baby, Girls, and Doll sizes.
Rosabella's Ruffle Neck Dress is a beautiful little dress with a simple design that will be perfect for Easter, dressy occasions or just every day wear! Rosabella’s also makes a wonderful birthday party dress! The unique style has an elastic neckline for easy on and off and fits loose for added comfort!
