Here are the photos of the costumes I make. 
I’ve created this album to get noticed by costume designers who would need a seamstress.
Yes, yes, yes, I’m a very naive person, who still believes that somewhere there are persons willing to teach their art in good old fashion way!
I’m also a selftaught person, meaning those photos are the only way I can show what I can do. 
If you could share this album it would mean a lot to me & you will have my eternal gratitude ;)

Voici les photos des costumes que je fabrique.
J’ai créé cet album afin d’attirer l’attention de costumiers qui auraient besoin d’une couturière.
Eh oui, je suis une personne très naïve, qui croit encore qu’il existe des personnes désireuses de transmettre leur Art de la bonne vieille manière !
Je suis également autodidacte, ce qui signifie que ces photos sont le seul moyen que j’ai de montrer ce dont je suis capable.
Si vous pouviez partager cet album ça compterai beaucoup pour moi & vous auriez mon éternelle reconnaissance ;)
