I absolutely love all of them... the styles and the fabrics are divine!  I need that jacket pattern, do they publish English versions?

Wonderful job!  Love the shirt on your son and that red jacket is beautiful.  I think every little girl needs a red jacket. Smiley

Thank you... unfortunatly they don't publish theses patterns in english... but the instructions are very well explained with pictures in the pattern 's sheet.

Maybe I'll try it anyway... I use the pictures more anyway as the technical terms in the written instructions blow my mind!  DId you find the patterns pretty straightforward?

Actually, the jacket's pattern is very clear...

the two others patterns are from the book of the same designer but the explainations are quite succinct
but the tunic is so easy that you don't need any explanations.
About the shirt, you have a tip to know before, otherwise you spend a lot of time to understand how to see it... The front is actually in ONE PIECE, and you need to fold the middle of the shirt to build the button band...
Since it's not really wrote int he book, you can find some tuts around internet like here :

read the post dated jeudi 23 aot 2007
and here a video : http://fredemickadeletc.canalblog.com/archives/2007/06/index.html

You could probably figure how to do it without the pattern....

So adorable - and your daughter is such a little model - too cute!  I love the pictures on the Citronille link - almost makes me want to brave the language barrier! Smiley

Have you tried Google translate? It's far from perfect but it helps. It can only translate text. So text saved in jpeg or such does not get translated. And since it's done by a machine some of it is more funny than informative.

Beautiful Work. I cant decide if I like the coat or the apron better.
