5K celebration and Freebie

straight skirt fb cover

 Wow, I’m so humbled that we have reached 5000 members in the chat and share group, did you know we’ve gained 2000 members in only 1 year, that is amazing.  It’s only onwards and upwards from now, I’m really excited as to what the next year brings.

For a while now I have had a few friends saying that I needed to design a little pencil/straight skirt for my collection and when I saw that the 5000 milestone was coming up I thought what a perfect time to do it.

It doesnt have a fancy name, but true to LKC fashion it has as many options as I could squish into a plain old, boring straight skirt.


These are the options

2 lengths ~ long (below knee) vs short (above knee)

2 pocket styles

2 waistband styles

2 hem styles

and here is the link 

Also the good news is, that if you join my group, you can get a CODE to purchase this delightful little skirt for FREE.

Also to help celebrate my 5k milestone these lovely, generous designers have donated a pattern each.  Make sure you enter the giveaway link below and show them some love by joining their groups.  One winner will take all!!! Ends 11.59pm 27 April 2017 (NZST)

New release and hack

Well, I’ve been a bit slack with posting lately, I’ve had a few new releases that I’ve not blogged about, but anyway, I’m going to write about the new little shorts pattern I’ve just released last week.  they are a harem style and have a few different options like length, hem and pockets.

lengthFirst up is the length – they come in long length and a short length – the long length is perfect for a folded up cuff and the short length is perfect for play and easy to move around in.

pocketNext up is the pockets – there are two pocket options, a girly gathered pocket and a traditional pocket ( have no idea what it;s actually called)

cuff-or-hemFinally the hem options – you can add a cuff or hem by folding in toward the wrong side, both are super easy.

Now the HACK I was talking about – my wonderful tester Karen R made so many pairs and had a play around with a little side-tie hack…they were so cute that I got her to write up how to do it so that you can have a go yourself.

 Join my group and download the hack from the files tabkaren-r

These little shorts are so fast to sew up and make great Christmas presents.
