Interview: Deer & Doe sewing patterns

I'm so very happy to have Eléonore on my blog today, with her spanking new sewing pattern line, Deer and Doe. I'm a huge supporter of this lovely French girl who I had the pleasure to know a little better thanks to her brilliant new project. I hope you'll enjoy a peek in her world!




Can you tell us a bit about yourself and your background? When did you start sewing?
My name is Eléonore, and I'm a 25 years old girl living in Paris with my boyfriend and my lazy cat. Beside sewing, I love drawing, photography,  and sciences :) .
I started sewing when I was studying computers engineering in Toulouse seven years ago, and it grew from a hobby to a passion! I graduated in computer sciences, and for the next 4 years, I worked as a web developer, growing my sewing skills on the side and creating a French sewing community.
And now I've taken the big leap to become a full-time pattern designer!


How did you start Deer&Doe? How did you choose the name?
My work as a web developer was taking me more and more time and energy, and I was slowly giving up on all the things I love (sewing, managing my community, developing my creativity). I wasn't really happy, and one day I woke up and decided I couldn't be like this anymore!
I've always wanted to start my own creative business, and I saw a real need for modern, fitted and easy-to-sew patterns among French seamstresses (the independent sewing patterns industry is not as developed here in France as it is in the US). It was really scary because it was a total career change and I knew it would be a LOT of work, but with the support of my family and the encouragements of my friends I took the plunge !
I knew from the start I wanted to convey a relaxed, stylish but nature-conscious vibe. I have a special thing for forest, and being in the woods gives me such peace and serenity, so I chose a symbol linked to fashion and to nature : the deer and the doe (and the duality of the name flatters my inner Gemini ^^).

Do you have formal training (art, design, sewing, etc.)?
I have a master degree in computers engineering, so I was destined to a very different career ^^. When I first started to think about creating my own patterns, I talked about it with a designer friend, who taught me pattern making was in fact geometry.  I realized it wasn't very different from the problems I used to solve in school, so I bought and borrowed a lot of books about pattern making and nerded my way into pattern design ! I love to learn new things, and I'm constantly looking for new techniques to master :)
I've also been doing design and illustration during my spare time, and it helped me a lot to master the softwares needed for pattern drawing and grading.

What are your main sources of inspiration? Your favorite designers or style icons?
At first, I tried very hard to find specific sources of inspiration (style icons, actresses, making moodboards with pieces of fabric and fashion sketches), but I found that "doing it by the rules" was not working for me.
So now I just have a huge Pinterest board named "Style" where I pin everything I like (fashion shows, ready-to-wear, fashion bloggers outfits, pictures of friends, old magazines). Basically, I try as much as possible to draw garments I want to wear (and would wear everyday), and not to be too influenced by what I think other people want.

Where do you see your pattern company in the future?
I've just opened my shop (and have received so much support already through the blog, Facebook and Twitter! Thank you!), but my dream is to be able to make a living selling my patterns! (and -let's dream- be able to hire an assistant and create employment in my community!)
For the moment, the patterns are in French only, but I plan to translate them to English as soon as possible! And I'm already working on a spring/summer collection :)

Do you still sew for yourself?
I don't exaggerate when I say that starting a pattern company means sewing A LOT (and sadly not for you!). I've managed to sew some garments for myself during the summer, but being made from my patterns they couldn't be shown before september... how frustrating! But I plan to sew a lot of variations for me in the next months, and also  to continue discovering other independent pattern designers! (I love the special care all indie designers put in their products).

*****

Thanks, Eléonore!
I don't know about you, but I've been in love with these designs ever since I saw them a month ago (I was lucky enough to have a little preview), so I snatched them all as soon as they were available.
If you don't speak French, you should know that the instructions of these patterns are heavily illustrated, so it shouldn't  be too big of a problem if you have some sewing experience. They will be translated into English eventually, but you'll need to wait a little longer because Eléonore is still working on it.


Finally, Eléonore has a present for you: a giveaway!
If you want to win a Deer and Doe pattern, just comment below telling me which design is your favorite (you can take a better look at them here). Mine is definitely the Bleuet dress, the perfect shirt dress with adorable details that I've been wanting for ages!

The giveaway closes Wednesday, September 26 at 12 pm GMT, the winner will be selected at random.  Please remember to leave your email address.

Good luck!

  1. I like the Bleuet best too! But they're all lovely!

  2. My fave is the Robe Sureau. I would grab all my french dictionaries for this pattern, and find it fun deciphering.Been trying to master French for years this could be the ticket. http://threadnoir.blogspot.co.uk/

    ReplyDelete
  3. Her patterns are lovely! Not sure if I could wait for them to be translated into English. My fave is the Belladonna dress.

    ReplyDelete
  4. They're all lovely, and I'm torn between Robe Belladone and the Veste Pavout - they both are so cute and offer so many creative options! If you held a gun to my head, I'd pick Robe Belladone though. I've been dreaming of a dress like this for some time in coral and navy....

    Oh, and my email is (one word) juliet sews (at) gmail dot com :)

    ReplyDelete
  5. These are truly beautiful patterns and I would love them all (if only could read French - I eagerly await the English translations!). My favorite is the Sureau dress, although the Pavot jacket is a very close second.

    ReplyDelete
  6. I love her style and can't wait to see the patterns come out with English translation. My favourite is the Airelle blouse, or the Pavot coat - i can't decide! email is stitchandwitter gmail dot com

    ReplyDelete
  7. What sweet patterns - it's always nice to find a new pattern company too. I love both the Robe Sureau and the Veste Pavot but think I would probably choose the Robe Sureau - I love the gather detail.
    Thank you for the giveaway :)

    ReplyDelete
  8. I would love the Bleuet dress pattern too. It's just too delicious. And as I'm learning French this sewing this would count as studying, no? Good luck to Eleanor. I admire her courage in following her passion and taking this step.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Eléonore made an amazing job with these patterns! I LOVE LOVE her style!! My fav is the robe Sureau! <3

    ReplyDelete
  10. I love the Sureau dress, it may just be the dress I have been searching for for a long time!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I love her design style and my favorite is Airelle blouse. cutekipepeo@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  12. I am a fan too! Eléonor is such an inspiring young lady! !nd you know what? I've just blogged about Deer&Doe and their beautiful patterns! Shall I say 'Great minds?'...Two of Eléonor's patterns are on the way to my mailbox but I would not say No to a Sureau dress !

    ReplyDelete
  13. I too love the Robe Sureau but I'm going to be brave and vote for the blouse airelle, I definitely need blouses like this in my work wardrobe. So lovely for you to have an interview with Eleonore, I've been following her blog, but only have pigeon French, so reading an interview in English was so welcome! Roll on with those translated patterns Eleonore and best of luck with your launch.

  16. What a great find and more beautiful things to add to the list to make! I really like the Robe Belladone! Thank you :)

  17. Wow! These are gorgeous! I can't wait for them to be translated but I might have to try to do it just from the illustrations! My favorite is the Belladonna dress!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Loving these patterns! how have I not heard of them before? My favourite would have to be the belladone! great giveaway :-) xx

    ReplyDelete
  19. These are gorgeous patterns! And I get to practise my French by reading her blog too! My favourite is the Veste Pavot - it's completely my style and I would love to make different versions for fall and spring coats. Facebook

    ReplyDelete
  20. Hey Anna, I love the Belladone robe! Thanks for the giveaway!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Thank you so much for sharing the interview Anna! I love all the designs, Eleonore is such an inspiring young lady! I am from a mechanical engineering major and I love sewing, but I don't have the skills (I am a beginner) to be a fashion designer at this moment. Sewing definitely is a very relaxing hobby and helps me to see what types of clothes flatter my look. I immediately fall in love of her BLOUSE AIRELLE as soon as I saw the pictures! I was not very into 3/4 cuff sleeves but things changed after I saw nette's nostalgia blouse. I then searched on etsy where I can find a blouse featuring this kind of sleeves, but unfortunately, I cannot find one that I like. However, Eleonore's version is different, and it has princess seams! I love it!

  22. Hello Paunnet, I'm delighted to learn that there are going to be more French independent pattern designers. To be honest I've been drooling over the Colette designs (& co) for a while now, but I'm reluctant since all of them are English-only. My English is quite fluent but I'm not so sure about the sewing vocabulary... So I'd be happy to work on these patterns. My favorite is the "Belladone" and it would fit one of the fabric coupons I have on the shelves.

    ReplyDelete
  23. If I 'had' to pick I'd chosen Sureau, I love a dress with a waistline - although the back detail of Blueut is adorable and the coat v.sweet.
    Thanks for introducing us to Deer & Doe!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oops! Sorry - I would choose the Sureau dress, definitely my favorite. Thank you for posting about Deer & Doe!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love all of the patterns and hopefully will get to buy them soon. The Robe Belladone would have to be my favourite. Thanks for the interview, lovely to read about Eléonore.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I figured you'd be posting about her soon! I have been mulling over the designs since they first came out, I love them so. I think my absolute favourite is also Bleuet; I can see so many cool possible versions of the pattern.

    ReplyDelete
  28. the bleuet dress is gorgeous - i love the bow at the back!

    ReplyDelete
  29. My favorite is the robe belladone, but they're all lovely! I can't wait to see the next collection!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Thank you so much, Anna, for making us discover such talented designers! Ironically enough, I am French, and I have to read blogs in English to learn about sewing news in French...I think it prooves we French have a lot of work to do to improve the sense of community among sewers! We are lucky to have persons like Eléonore around to help build it...and create these lovely patterns!
    And by the way, my favorite patterns are Belladone and Bleuet (I'm a sucker for bare-back designs and shirt dresses with cute details!)

  31. My favorite is also the robe bleuet. It is divine. This is a really lovely pattern line

    ReplyDelete
  32. Sweet! Thanks so much for setting up this giveaway! I covered Thread & Needles a while ago and it's so awesome that Eleanore has gone on to bigger and bigger projects. The poppy jacket/ vest pavot is my favourite- I like the clean lines and demure silhouette. See you around!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Thank you so much for the interview! I always love learning about new indie pattern companies! My favorite pattern is the Belladone dress - I think it would look lovely with the back sewn up in a sheer fabric.

    ReplyDelete
  34. So cute! I'm loving the robe belladone.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Oh my goodness, thank you so much for posting about Deer&Doe! I hadn't heard of this pattern line before, but I think I've found a new favourite! I love all the patterns but I think my current 'must-have' is probably the Robe Bleuet too! I think if I made it up in either a rich brown, burgundy or dark green, it would be perfect for early autumn!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Hi!
    it's been a while that I wanted to leave a comment on your blog...which I really like, your style, comments on the burda-magazines (love those :)!!) etc...
    from the deer and doe patterns I saw already some realizations on other blogs and the style looks really great, a bit retro, but modern and easy to wear..
    I'll have to say my favourite for the moment is the "sureau dress", my email is: muenzeeins@gmail.com, (blog: http://muenzeeins@blogspot.com );
    merci pour le jeu!!

  37. I'm really impressed by Eleonore's work ! This is simply amazing and i love patterns !! Especially the sureau dress ! :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Ooh thanks
    so much for posting about Deer & Doe! I’m thrilled that there is now an independent
    designer here in France and I really
    love the style of these patterns! If I had to pick one, I would choose the “robe
    sureau” but that’s a tough decision! Good luck Eléonore!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Lovely... I always wondered about other designers out there. I actually like Robe Sureau. It's pretty casual and easy on the eyes. At least for me.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Thank you! I love finding out about new pattern designers. I also love the Bleuet dress. That bow back is too cute

    ReplyDelete
  41. Thank you for posting this amazing interview! I love hearing about designers who didn't start as designers - it feels like they're following their true calling. I love the Robe Bluet, with the bow on the back. So cuteee

    ReplyDelete
  42. My favorite is the Belladone but they are all so beautiful ! It's hard to choose !

    ReplyDelete
  43. I love all the patterns! But I would say, the Sureau dress is my favorite.

    ReplyDelete
  44. i'm constantly searching for new independent pattern designers, great suggestion! my favourite pattern would be the Airelle blouse, i'm really into blouses atm :)


    my email adress is lilaorchidee at gmail dot com i don't think i have it on my twitter page...

    ReplyDelete
  45. These patterns are so perfect! I love the back detailing on the Belladone dress, but Sureau has such a casual, wear-with-anything vibe. Thanks for the giveaway! the.cute.octopus@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  46. They are all lovely. But, my favorite for myself to wear would be the Sureau dress.

    ReplyDelete
  47. ooh! thanks for introducing me to another indie patternmaker! I really prefer using indie patterns and since I *kinda* speak French, I might be able to pull these off! I love them all but my favorite is the veste pavot which is adorable! thanks to both of you for the giveaway! info(at)christinehaynes(dot)com

    ReplyDelete
  48. the belladone dress!!! (I already ordered the sureau dress...)

    ReplyDelete
  49. Thank you so much for this opportunity, my favourite is the sureau dress. But they're all so beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I love all of these. Everything is just my style (or the style I wish I had). I would love to try the jacket -- the Veste Pavot. Thanks to you both!!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Love the indie designer interviews! All the patterns are very cute, but my favorite is the Robe Bleuet, too!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Oh my gosh I would make the Robe Bleuet in every color imaginable. So perfect.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I hadn't heard of Deer & Doe but I always love stumbling on new independent designers. What's interesting about her is that she was trained in computer engineering and was a web developer before becoming full time pattern maker. I feel like a lot of seamstresses have a background or a knack for science. I was a chemistry geek in high school.

    ReplyDelete
  54. oh, and I'd love to win an airelle blouse

    ReplyDelete
  55. These are so great! Robe sureau is my fave.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Thanks for this interview. I just discovered this indie designer today. My favourite is blouse Airelle.

  57. Oooh la la these are lovely. I'd say Robe Belladone because of the sexy peep back that isn't too revealing.

    ReplyDelete
  58. It's so nice to see new independent pattern designers launching. I particularly love the Veste Pavot. Perfect for the fall in Montreal.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I really like a few of these. I don't have occasion to wear a lot of dresses. I make, on average, one great dress a year to wear to whatever weddings I inevitably need to go to that summer. The Belladonna dress looks like it would fit that brief perfectly. I love the pockets, the shoulder line and the back is interesting.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Wow! I love seeing independent designers, and Eléonore has really stepped up the bar!! I love Robe Belladone, that back is amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  61. I really like learning more about independent pattern designers!I love the Poppy Jacket!Perfect for the light fall weather!

    ReplyDelete
  63. I'm loving the Belladone dress, but they are all super cute!

    ReplyDelete
  64. It's difficult to just pick one! They are all great...but if I was going to win just one, then I would want the
    Belladonna Dress

    ReplyDelete
  65. i always love discovering new designers with you.. and my favorite is belladone dress :)

    ReplyDelete
  66. I"m really into collars (without having to do all the buttons normally associated with them.) And the Airelle blouse has been something i've been looking for!

    Oh wow, thanks so much for sharing this Anna! What a sweet collection, I'm in love! I actually would find it hard to choose a pattern as they are all so gorgeous, but it might have to be Bleuet or Belladone! (sklipikish[at]hotmail[dot]com)

    Bleuet, no doubt!

    ReplyDelete
  125. I discovered this pattern compagny on monday and it was really love at the first sight. My favorite pattern is the Airelle blouse. Actually my truly favorite is the Sureau dress but since it shares design elements with the darling ranges dress, I guess I should give a try to a different pattern !
    Thank you so much for this give away

    ReplyDelete
  126. I Love those patterns!
    the dresses are so pretty but I pick the Belladone dress because I like the interesting back :)

    ReplyDelete
  127. I think my favourite is the belladone dress or maybe the airelle blouse. They are all so lovely though!

    ReplyDelete
  128. I love the Belladone dress, it has such an awesome back (although the Bleuet dress is a really close second :))

  133. Thank you for introducing us to Deer & Doe. It's really nice to see new young designers coming out with beautiful patterns. I like all of them, but my absolute favourite will have to be the Bleuet dress! Just love the feminine cut and that cute bow at the back. (whitemousecreations@gmail.com)
