Here is the new and long awaited summer Craftine Box ! We’ve been looking forward to showing it to you. As we announced previously, this box heralds the start of something new : from now on the boxes will contain not 1 but 2 suggestions of things to make. To learn more about this new idea, click here.
This new box is like a ray of sunshine; get your sunglasses on as you risk being dazzled when you open it. Inside there are beautiful colours and gorgeous fabrics. It’s a box which will fill you with a desire to get sewing your summer outfits straight away to make the most of the sunshine, the beach and the long summer evenings…
Here are the summery contents of this box:
We worked alongside 2 stylists who have designed a choice of 2 completely different outfits to make from the contents.
And the lovely extra surprise which comes with this box ; 1 extra bonus pattern. So not just 2 but 3 patterns included in the box for this month. 😊
- Lauren’s suggestion is to make the T-shirt Mombin and the Airelle skirt. A chic and elegant outfit inspired by one of the standout looks of this summer: the wrap skirt. An outfit with a determinedly feminine look.
The Mombin T-shirt is a timeless piece which will be indispensible in your wardrobe. It’s a basic that can be infinitely varied. Its cut, fitted around the waist and its shaped hem will flatter all body shapes. The Mombin T-shirt is the t-shirt to wear everyday with jeans, shorts, a skirt or trousers, it will quickly become a staple of your outfits.
The Airelle skirt is a fantastically useful wrap skirt for your summer wardrobe. It has pleats at the front and is fastened round the waist with a bow. Its hem is edged with ric rac braid which gives it a great finishing touch. This fashionable skirt will suit all body shapes and will be your ally for a great summer shape.
- Ezra’s suggestion is the Amande dress.
In the sunshine, here or elsewhere, this is THE chic summer style. The Amande dress with its chic bohemian look is simply irresistible.. The Amande dress is a two-fabric dress which will suit all body shapes. Its jersey yoke will enhance the bust while the lower part of the dress flares out slightly to conceal any curves. The top, knotted at the shoulders, the triangular yokes and the ric rac finish round the hem make this dress fashionable and just irresistible.
The patterns are available in sizes 6 to 20. The instructions for making up the garments, as well as the PDF patterns are available on a download link on the flyer enclosed with your box.
