Hot Summer Read the Dressmaker

By Style

Claude Reynaud was a small time tailor with haute couture skills, tucked away in a small town in France. Customers, mostly referred to him by word of mouth, kept his calendar full with special occasion dresses and new suits. A simple man, he was quite content following in his fathers footsteps from his quaint studio, accompanied only by his parrot, Pendant.

Claude was known for his keen eye and exquisite taste, so it’s no surprise Valentine de Verlay traveled out of fashionable Paris to request Claude design her wedding dress. From the moment he saw her, it was love at first sight…
