This class and pattern are for the purpose of giving you a taste of French Sewing by Machine and is not meant to be a totally authentic representation of a pattern from that era. Some modern methods will be included to make sewing your costume easier and faster. This costume can be constructed completely by hand if you wish, and a fine 'size 12 sharp' hand sewing needle is included with your pattern just for those taking this class.
Some hand work will be required in finishing.
At some point once the class is over, needles will no longer be included with the pattern as temporary special shipping arrangements have been made with my post office and are only good for a limited time.
