What is your favorite part of knowing how to sew? It's something to think about. This week my son needed a last minute costume piece for their homecoming dress-up days at school so I quickly whipped up a bow-tie for him using Emmett's. Then my daughter found that her jazz shorts weren't fitting the way she liked so I made a quick pair for her just in time for dance class, using Callie's. Another day my first-grader was wearing his favorite shirt during breakfast and spilled syrup ALL over it -- I was able to dodge that meltdown with the promise of a new, even cooler shirt by the time he got home from school. Whew! So even aside from all the over-the-top cuteness that our patterns provide, I think that sewing is just a great skill to have for every day life -- whether you're a parent, grandparent, neighbor, or friend! Yay for sewing! Anyway, enough about my family adventures. Now let's take a look at everything that went on in the world of CKC this week!
Our first new release is Cynthia's Babydoll Pageant Dress. The simple bodice is a pretty base for decorating with all kinds of embellishments, and the classic fishing line hem is sure to get her noticed! You can choose from finger tip length or a casual length, making this pattern perfect for everything from pageants to parties to costumes and more!
