The latest Craftine box has arrived. It’s a very spring-fresh, floral box which forecasts the return of warmer days. With light fabrics, a floral print, two patterns for two stylish looks and a DIY surprise, this new box will surprise and delight you.Choose between Spring in New York City or British Romance to renew your handmade wardrobe with a new outfit made to measure!
Here are the contents of your surprise sewing box :
The floral print is the unmissable design of this season. It has crossed the eras and is loved by everyone. We have chosen to give it a black background for a rock-romantic look.
Our ideas for the contents
With the floral fabric, we have two new women’s sewing patterns for you: The Grenadine dress and the Litchi blouse. The collars are the standout feature of these two on-trend pieces : a shirt collar or a Peter Pan collar (named in English after the collar featured in the 1905 stage costume for Peter Pan, but in French named a Claudine collar after the character created by Colette in her novel Claudine à l’école). Make the collar in cotton poplin for a très romantique touch !
Suggestion #1 : Spring in New York City
The Grenadine dress is a real asset to your wardrobe and will be your ally in helping you to feel feminine and radiant. It is impossible to resist the charm of this belted shirt dress which will define your shape. Its shirt collar made of cotton poplin will give a modern, contrasting look.
Styling tip : Vary the look by changing up your shoes : a sportswear look with trainers, a pretty look with heels and a summer look with sandals ; the Grenadine dress will adapt to your mood and your desires.
Suggestion #2 : British Romance
The Litchi blouse is a feminine, easy to wear piece.
It has charming frills up the front, a Peter Pan collar and buttoned cuffs. These details give it a romantic, quirky, victorian style.
Styling tip : Wear it with ‘mom’ jeans in a stiff denim, this is the jeans style which is going to be big this summer, inspired by the iconic Levis 501s. This will make a pretty spring outfit which has everything you want.
