Citronille sewing patterns are designed by the French designer Astrid Le Provost, who has published more than 100 patterns to date. She recently translated a couple dozen patterns into English. While the patterns are fairly simple, they do not offer the same kind of detailed help and instructions as you will find with some companies such as Colette, Oliver + S, and some of the translations are slightly unclear, so we do not recommend them for beginners. We carry all the English patterns at our shop and online. If there is a Citronille pattern you see in French that you’d love to sew, please let us know.
