Weekly Wound Up

Did you miss our newsletter last week? I must confess that I was on vacation with my family!  We made it to Disneyland and we had all kinds of fun wearing our CKC tops and shorts. People noticed our outfits everywhere we went and we even had someone offer to buy my husband's shirt off him right then. (He was wise and said no.) Well, now we're back home and into reality, so let's get all caught up on this week's happenings at CKC: 

New Releases

This week we released seven new patterns including two women's patterns, two girls patterns, one dance wear pattern, one baby pattern, and one doll pattern! Wow! 

First up is Frances' Pleated Dress. This amazing dress has it all, with a pintuck bodice, hemtuck skirt, button closure, ruffled neck, and pleated sash. The classic lines of this dress will ensure that your little lady is looking her very best! 

Next up is Qiana’s Keyhole Leotard, the newest dancewear design of 2018! This fun number features the popular neckline keyhole, both legband and elastic leg options, both full front and peekaboo front options, as well as a fun cut back! 

The next one is for you! Monica's Cold Shoulder Top and Dress is an easy knit outfit that you will fall in love with every time you make it! This trendy look is simple to dress up with beautiful knit fabrics but easy enough for even a beginner to sew. We bet you can't make just one!

Our second women's pattern this week is Cersei's Wrap, Crop, Top, and Dress. This pattern is a true wrap and you can choose between sleeveless, short, ¾ or long sleeves. This design can go from day to night to offer endless styling possibilities! The wrap ties cinch just under the bust for a perfect figure skimming design.

For dolls, we now have the Adorabella's Crossover Dress, Tunic, and Ruffle Pants for her tiny best friend to match the girl version! The pattern includes both pieces and turns out super cute every time. 

And last but not least, we have Arianna's Reversible Jacket for Girls and Babies! Arianna is fully lined which makes it reversible and it has an adorable hood and sleeves that are folded back at the cuffs to expose the lining. The skirt is gathered at the back with an optional bow. Arianna features front pockets that can be embellished or simply add the bows onto the pocket for that classy boutique look. It can be made with PUL for a raincoat or simply cottons for an everyday jacket. 

Remember, all these newly released patterns are 30% off through Sunday night!  Plus we have automatic Tiered Pricing, so the more you buy the more you save!
