Deer&Doe



This month sees a new arrival to the family of independent pattern designers; welcome Deer&Doe and lovely Eléonor from Paris! Eléonor launched her first patten collection only last Monday and I could not help writing about it.

The collection is made up of five garments, divided into three levels of difficulty - beginner, intermediate & advanced - with the level being denoted by the color of the envelope which the pattern comes in. Don't you find the designs sooo French? :)

My absolute favorites are the unlined spring/autumn jacket, Pavotand the dress, Belladone.



All patterns include detailed explanations with step-by-step construction drawings.

What is more, Deer&Doe is an eco-friendly project! All patterns and instructions are made from recycled paper and the site itself is hosted by an environmentally-engaged company which uses 100% hydropower to generate electricity.

Don'w worry that the blog and patterns are in French. Eléonor is currently working on an English version of her blog and should provide English instructions as well (I am currently double-checking with her and update asap).

Do you like it?

    1. The latest news is that the patterns will be translated, but you have to wait, since Eléonor, who is a one-person business, is pretty busy dining the launch of her pattern line. But the instructions contains lots of very detailed step-by-step drawings which are easy to understand, unless you are a beginner.

  2. Delicious! I saw their website about 5 minutes ago for the first time, and I'd be very surprised if there aren't some finished versions of these patterns floating around the interwebs v. soon!
