The whole team has been all geared up preparing your boxes. We have been super impatient to present them to you, as, you can tell us what you think, but on our side, we love it !
For the month of October, this box puts the emphasis on the podiums, fashion week, street style, sportswear chic… In other words, if your goal is to be on trend, this new box is sure to please you.
The contents of the box, has included all the latest fashion trends. You’ve asked for the latest colours of the season, they are here! You’ve demanded something shiny, elegant and bright, it’s here as well! You want the fashionable trims for this autumn, approved, it’s in the box. And, in addition, you desire a must-have urban sportswear garment, bright and chic, to own in your autumn wardrobe, therefore we have presented you with the pattern.
We are sure, that you will have a blast with the contents of this box, which, as always, includes high quality fabrics. Let’s discover its contents together :
- Vivid Royal Blue Jacquard fabric: 140 x 150 cm
- Lurex rib fabric (tubular): 40 x 70 cm (*1)
- Fusible Patches: 3 (*2)
- PDF Pattern to download: 1
1 – The rib fabric has been sent to you with the wrong side facing the outside. The right side is on the inside, the ‘shinier’ side.
2- Advice for applying the fusible patches: Place the shape with the wrong side (sticky side) on the right side, at the desired place, cover with a scrap fabric and place iron on top while applying pressure for 20 sec. Then, turn the fabric over and iron on the wrong side.
Blue is one of the hottest colours of the season in all its shades: Royal blue, cobalt blue, turquoise, electric and magnetic… The orangey bright coral is the perfect solution for all these grey days. Everything shiny is a must-have this season.
With the contents of this box, we suggest that you make the ‘Coqueret’ bomber. The bomber is the piece to have in your wardrobe this autumn. A must-have! It’s the perfect mix to combine both feminine allure, with sporty and urban chic. The fusible patches add the little rock accent that makes all the difference !
To download the ‘Coqueret’ Bomber pattern (available from sizes 6UK-20UK), use the link found on the reverse side of the postal card included in your box. This month we have chosen to offer you a very trendy pattern but which is also a bit more technical, namely the rib application. We have in our hearts the desire to push you to your limits by presenting to you, and allowing you to discover an expandable fabric. But, don’t worry, the pattern comes with, as usual, a very detailed technical booklet with images for every step of the way so even beginners will understand.
And, if, you have the slightest question, namely during the sewing phase, do not hesitate to contact us. We are always available to help and accompany you during the assembly of each pattern!
