Paunnet has a great interview (in English) with Eleonore on her blog here... with a giveaway!
And over on the Deer and Doe shop blog, Eleonore is doing a style-by-style introduction to the patterns, starting with the Robe Sureau.
Me? I have ordered two dress patterns: Sureau and Bleuet. I had a slight mis-hap with Paypal, which automatically added "France" to my address (lol!) and had to email Eleonore, which I did in secondary-school-level French. She replied in English and mentioned that the diagrams are very clear, so language should not be a barrier.
Now I just have to be patient until my order arrives...
I live with my First Love in a rural idyll, after a lifetime in exile. In July 2007 he was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma: an incurable cancer of the blood plasma. We got married in December 2007. Carpe diem.
There is lots of wind and sky where I live, which blows me away.
I love reading and stitching and creating things.
I have two lovely children, a dog and my First Love.
The Roobeedoo Manifesto, January 2012:
I hereby undertake to make all my own clothing
or purchase it from ethically-minded independent designers.
For now. For always.
