I was lucky enough to be approached by Craftine Box UK to review one of their boxes (I received the box for free in return for writing an honest review).
In this post I will tell you all about it. I had so much fun photographing and videoing this project as it felt like a special gift and the colours are just so me, it's exactly my palette.
To be honest I was not overly familiar with Craftine, they are a French based company and are very popular there, but they are now also looking to branch out in the UK.
It's a subscription or gift based service where you basically receive a box which contains everything that you need to make the suggested garment, so it includes fabrics, pattern, thread, instructions and any notions required, oh and some little sweets too.
It costs £33.90 in the UK with a PDF pattern, or its an extra £2.50 for a paper pattern so super reasonable.
The box that I reviewed is the April version and it contained everything that is needed to make a lovely trench jacket, and I love, love, love it!
First of all, let me show you what is inside the box, I recorded a video when opening the box so that you can see all of the details. It felt like it was Christmas!
I thought that this jacket was going to be quite complex to make, but I was so wrong, it was super quick and relatively easy and came together really well.
In the video below I show you all of the details of the jacket (I thought that its easier for you to see the details on video as I can zoom in super close), I also show you the pattern instructions on a screen recording so that you have got an idea of how detailed they are.
I honestly can't tell you how much I love this jacket, I've not taken it off since I made it and it's got so many compliments. I feel so lucky to have been given the opportunity to try it out and share it with you.
I'm also super excited that I will be receiving my June box very soon and I can't wait to see what's inside.
I hope that you enjoyed this review, as much as I loved making it.
