Now that fall’s here, you long to spruce them up but don’t want to spend your entire stash of acorns.
Turn to CPC Designs, created by a trio of local moms who enlisted their brood of chipmunks as fit models for their classic line of dresses, longalls, and pants.
Go the custom route by mixing and matching fabrics and trims; choose from soft corduroys, festive plaids, or a preppy, anchor-embroidered option. Top off your creation with a monogrammed pocket. Or make things simple by picking one of the stock styles.
They’ve taken into account how fast kids sprout by adding details like contrasting cuffs for rolling up or down, waistbands with plenty of give, and adjustable ribbon shoulder straps.
So you can squirrel them away for next season.
