La Fleur de Lyse

If you have any kind of interest in the clothing of New France then you must visit this site by Suzanne Gousse. The photo album has a lot of her work over the years and it is all first class tailoring and research. She sells the patterns through folks like Smoke and Fire (see below) but I still think you can learn a lot from this webpage. Books are also worth a look - they have one that looks good Re-enactors Guide to the French Army, 1755-1760. Volume 1 and 2.

  1. She is also a very interesting and passionate woman, delightful to talk to for hours. I happened to talk to her last year for one hour, just after the 250th anniversary of the Battle of Quebec got cancelled and we had a very interesting conversation... I am hoping to talk to her again sometimes soon.... and meet her...
