Here it is, the new season’s Craftine Box, with well thought-out contents to be ahead of the game. Lovely fabrics, key colours, 3 brand new patterns included, one of which is a new one for us ! Thanks to this box you will easily be able to sew yourself a new wardrobe for the season. Is your style sporty chic ? Or more working girl ? Everything is possible with this box, depending on your style and what you fancy, it’s up to you to choose and please yourself !

Without further ado, this is what’s inside :

Things to know :
Viscose twill is a fabric that is soft to the touch, keeps its shape and drapes well. It isn’t prone to wrinkling and contains elastane which makes it supple and easy to wear.
Satin is everywhere in the fashion world at the moment. It’s an elegant and sensual fabric which outlines and follows the female form beautifully.
Purple is the Pantone Institute’s colour of the year; it evokes feelings of creativity and intuition, encouraging us to develop our creative potential.

This month we are offering not 2 but 3 new patterns so you can make 2 different outfits with 2 different looks. We are offering the top as a bonus pattern.

Suggestion #1 : Sporty chic

As seen in all the fashion weeks, the trend for sporty chic is a major influence on our wardrobes !
It’s the style of the moment : mixing comfort and femininity while still looking smart, sporty chic is a trend to wear everyday.
The fabrics are key to create a true sporty chic look. They must work to create a look which is both elegant and effortless.

The viscose twill and the satin perfectly match these demands.
One of the key pieces of the sporty chic trend is the trousers. Our suggestion is the Citron ⅞ trousers with side stripes, flat pleats and self tie belt.
Our style tip : Wear with a slogan t-shirt and white trainers.

Suggestion #2 : Working girl

Getting dressed to go to work can sometimes give be a real headache, leaving you torn between the wish to assert your individuality but also to preserve your credibility.
This can often lead to outfits that are too classic in style.
We have found a solution by mixing styles and wearing for example a smart jacket with jeans.

The Cassis jacket, with a wrap front and cinched in waist gives a feminine look.
Our style tip : Worn with jeans it’s an ideal outfit to capture that smart casual look.
Wear it to the office right away!

Bonus pattern : The Physalis Top
This top flirts with the world of lingerie. It is feminine and shows off your shape with its fitted cut, bust darts and top-stitched neckline.
Our style tip : For a relaxed look wear it under a long soft cardigan or, for a smarter look, wear it with a fitted jacket.
