French Poetry offers...

A collection of elegant, feminine sewing patterns with a French je-ne-sais quoi

For all body types, to hand-craft your own dream wardrobe. My goal is to provide styles worthy of the chicest ready-to-wear brands to burgeoning and experienced sewists, so that making your own clothes can finally become a real alternative to shopping.

Detailed and illustrated instructional booklets

Each new French Poetry sewing pattern comes with an illustrated manual with particularly detailed illustrations. Many also have an instructional video to explain technical parts.

A new, inclusive size range up to hips 66” (163cm)

We are proud to offer our 3 best-selling patterns, the Pleiades 1 dress, Pleiades 2 dress and Stella dress, up to hips 66” (163cm), which would correspond to a size 6XL or US size 32W. Each sewing pattern is designed and adapted to each size range by professional modelists and pattern graders to offer a flattering cut. We hope to offer many more in the future.

Planet-friendly sewing patterns, always looking to innovate

All patterns are available as PDFs in A0, A4, or US letter formats. Lines and other marks have all been optimized for maximum visibility, while also reducing ink consumption in print. We are currently investigating the projector format.
