Intemporel pour enfants

w200_h500_Copy of couvenftThe translation for the french word intemporel is timeless. It is the perfect description for this book of lovely kid’s clothes patterns.

I am starting to get a bit obsessed about making clothes for my kids. I am not particularly good at it, but it is really nice to throw a little top for them together in an evening. I actually find it really relaxing to do something with my hands after a day of running around or sitting all day at a computer.

The Intemporel pour enfant book has really inspired me to produce simple pieces for the kids’ wardrobes. I have been making drawstring trousers, simple tunics, nightgowns and little summer dresses all based on patterns out of this book.

If you have a sewing machine standing around, I highly recommend this book! Unfortunately it is written in French, but I reckon that if you have a little sewing experience you should be able to figure out the patterns.

I saw these books when I was staying at your apartment and LOVED them! I don’t think the french is a problem, they’re pretty clear!

Is there a chance you could please share 2-3 photos of the patterns inside before I decide whether to buy? I have a feeling I would love this book. Many thanks.
