On this page I gather tutorials that may help you through the steps of French Poetry patterns garment construction. I am neither the author nor affiliated in any way to these videos: I just link to contents I find useful on the web, because why re-do something that was done well by others 🙂 You can find the author of each video by clicking on the title.

Happy sewing!
