French Poetry is...
A collection of elegant, feminine sewing patterns
You can 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 instructional videos and illustrations
Each new French Poetry sewing pattern comes with either an instructional video that shows, step-by-step, how to sew the garment, or an illustrated manual with particularly detailed illustrations. Soon, all patterns—even older ones—will come with this new format of illustrated booklets!
Sewing patterns sized out by professional modelists and pattern graders
Each template is designed and adapted to each size by professional modelists and pattern graders. We’ll be coming out with a plus-size line soon, starting with the Pleiades 1 sewing pattern, which we are currently testing.
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.
