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...
