New Independent Pattern company alert!

Wednesday, September 19

Hi everyone, this is just a quick post to show you what I discovered today. I was snooping around on Lin3arossa's blog and she mentioned a pattern she loved from a new pattern company. The company,  Deer and Doe, is French , and is run by Eleonore. She is quite the lady on the French sewing scene I think because she is also the founder of Thread and Needles, a site similar to the Sew Weekly. She certainly has a thing for the English language I tell you.

So I clicked on the link, and behold. I fell on these goodies:

The Pavot Coat

The Bleuet dress

The Belladone dress

The Sureau dress

The Airelle blouse

What do you think? My faves are the Pavot coat and the Bleuet dress. I asked her if she ships to the UK, and she replied almost immediately. She ships worldwide. Now isn't that cool?

The downside is that the instructions are in french. I totally forgot to ask her if the instructions came in other languages too. I understand French, so reading the instructions won't be a problem for me. Then again, the construction principles will be the same as other things you have sewn I suppose.

The patterns can be bought on her website.

The patterns are all printed in France, using recycled paper, in an environmentally friendly printing company, and caters to sizes 34 - 46( Europe). So that translates to sizes 6 -20 UK and 4-18 USA I think. Correct me if I am wrong.


  1. They are sweet patterns - Paunnet has an interview and giveaway on her blog you might be interested in :)

  2. I lve the bow on the back of the bleuet dfess

  3. Is it just me or are they somewhat reminiscent of Colette Patterns style? They are cute, but totally not my style, just like Colette Patterns.

  4. I'm lovin the Belladone dress.... but the others don't do much for me. I'm too much of a tomboy! We could always use google translate if you desperately had to have the instructions :)

  5. I love the Belladone dress, too! It's way too cute! I can't quite bear to part with the cash to ship it to the States at the moment, but I'm so excited to see versions of these pop up on the internets!

  6. oooo i love these. just saw them recommended on another blog! sigh why is there no money in my account lol

  7. These are great! Nice to see another talent joining the ranks of pattern publishers.

  8. I saw another post about this and had a look, they are adorable! Now I just have to see if they will ship to NZ at a reasonable cost!
