Create Kids Couture Willow Wrap Re-Mix Challenge!

Thank you for stopping by our voting round in our Create Kids Couture Willow Wrap Jacket Re-Mix Challenge!
 
Create Kids Couture is a Pattern Design company offering both paper and PDF patterns. Shannon and Tiffany co-own CKC and after meeting in 2008, they quickly bonded and taught themselves and each other what they knew about clothing design. "After years of requests from fans, we finally decided to share our unique, one-of-a-kind design with everyone by forming Create Kids Couture in July 2011. When we opened we had just 5 patterns and after really discovering our love for designing we quickly grew to have over 40 patterns in just 6 months." Way to Grow CKC!!
 

In this challenge Boutique Challenge Auctions paired up with Create Kids Couture and our design team was challenged to Re-Mix the Willow Wrap Jacket! They had to change the design up in some way to qualify. This was definitely a tough one but it was lots of fun!

Here is a photo of what the Create Kids Couture Willow Jacket looks like without a Remix

 
So each designer purchased the Willow Wrap Jacket pattern from CKC and were given a certain amount of time to create the jacket remix and make it their own. We have some entrants who really added their own flavor to the design and the fabric choices are amazing!

Take a look through all of the entries and comment to let us know which one is your favorite design! Then enter the Rafflecopter giveaway with your vote. All Rafflecopter entries will be entered into a raffle to win a $10 gift certificate which can be used in any of our Auctions within the next 60 days.
Please note that anonymous entries will not count.
 
 
 
The designers are going through 2 rounds of voting. The Fan favorite will earn them a great auction package for future auctions. Then there is the CKC Voting round where Create Kids Couture will chose their favorite as well. Winners will be announced after the competition has ended! So be sure to vote on your favorite to help them become a Fan Favorite and earn your chance to win a $10 BCA Gift Certificate at the same time!
