Craftine Box : The New Year’s Box has arrived !

Here is the latest Craftine Box to start the New Year. It’s a box with captivating contents, with deep colours and with a touch of festive shine but which is still great for everyday.

This new box invites you to create a party outfit to fit in with the Let It Shine trend but with the big advantage of it being office-appropriate too thanks to our styling tips.
So, this month you have one box with two design ideas to make with our exclusive patterns, but giving you four outfit ideas – a Let It Shine version for partying and a Casual Sporty Chic version for later.

Here are the contents of your new surprise sewing box :

The luxurious crepe is a lovely, quality fabric which falls beautifully. It’s the ideal fabric to create on-trend feminine outfits : dresses, tops, jumpsuits…
Green is everywhere this season. This deep green makes a welcome change from black but is still easy to wear. It’s a colour that is winning everyone over this winter.
The printed crepe has little iridescent geometric shapes which give it a luminous radiance.

The two fabrics, plain and printed, go together wonderfully and creates a Let It Shine look while still being suitable for everyday.

Our suggestions with these contents

This month we are offering two new unmissable patterns for the season ; the Melon dress and the Abricot jumpsuit; two strong pieces which will allow you to stand out from the crowd for the festivities and beyond ! Dress or jumpsuit it’s up to you.
And, as we don’t want to sew a garment just to wear in the evenings we thought for this box we would give you some styling tips to dress it down and help you to accessorise these two stand out garments according to the occasion, whether it be for a party or the office.

Suggestion #1 : Team jumpsuit

This season the jumpsuit is everywhere, it’s unmissable. It’s the ideal garment for your New Year’s Eve party outfit. Perfect as a change from the little black dress to make sure you get noticed. The Abricot jumpsuit is belted with a lovely deep V neck. Easy to wear and very classy, the Abricot jumpsuit will make you look stylish and elegant with a streamlined silhouette. And the best thing about the jumpsuit? It’s a garment which is also easy to wear every day for work. Here are our tips for how to accessorise it.

Styling tips :
– Worn with high-heeled black courts, a classic black French beret and a powder pink clutch, it makes a charming outfit, perfect for a chic outing.
– Worn with white trainers and a fine knit roll neck, it gives a confident, sporty-chic, look easy to wear for everyday.

Suggestion #2 : Team Dress

The Melon dress reinvents the little black dress for evening wear to create a confident and stylish look. You will love its victorian-style collar and geometric cut. This lovely little dress will also be easy to wear for everyday.

Styling tips :
– Worn with black boots in leather or suede, opaque tights, big hoop earrings and a black clutch with gold studs, it makes an elegant evening outfit.
– Worn with black opaque tights and white trainers, it makes for a confident, urban look, easy to wear everyday and great to look at !
