"As we've come to expect from the folks at Interweave, great diagrams, beautiful color photos and even symbol crochet bring together all the tools the crocheter need to achieve great results. I loved reading Mary Jane's introduction, and felt like I was right there in the room with her as she shared her excitement for creating this book of chic crochet patterns for us. Inspired by the architecture, fashions, gardens and culture of France, the patterns all carry French-inspired names. I couldn't wait to take a look at this collaborative approach and to see how Mary Jane translated her inspiration into crochet!" --Crochet Queen

I would consider just about all of the patterns in this book to be at an intermediate skill level. The patterns are well written and there are ample stitch diagrams. The notes, variations, and tips written into the patterns are well worth reading.
Finally, the photography throughout the book is gorgeous and there are plentiful photos showing different views to illustrate each design. The garments reflect a varied color palette and the author encourages you to experiment in choosing yarn colors.
