Oh, thanks so much for posting this Jenny-Rose! I really want to make my red DL Francaise this year (from that red painted silk we both have) and this is a big help.

You are most welcome! I know there are a couple of them in the works on my friend's list which is fun. I can't wait to see yours - that red fabric is going to make a fabulous Française!

Kendra's was the one I used! But if it's helpful, here's mine:

Hey Maggie, I had a question, did you just use pocket hoops under your Francaise or did you make some bigger panniers?
padawansguide From: padawansguide Date: December 31st, 2011 10:20 pm (UTC) (link)
I bought pocket hoops online - they're sort of medium sized. I bought a little bit smaller ones from April Thomas at Fort Fred and I wore those under the striped francaise.

An Extant gown

It's not a how too guide but it's one of the few that has pretty detailed inside pictures.

Thanks! Inside pics are always good.
