The Prince and the Dressmaker Reviews

  • Korrina  (OwlCrate)

    This was exceptional! So heartwarming, and the characters were so lovable. This is definitely a story I’ll read again and again, and recommend to friends.

  • Mackenzi

    This book is the anachronistic 19th century French fairytale meets Project Runway but with cross dressing and deconstruction of gender norms of my dreams.

  • Lola

    This is the graphic novel I had no idea I was waiting for these past twenty years of my life. I have always loved stories about princes and princesses and kings and queens and lavish dresses—no wonder I couldn’t put this down.

    I don’t want to speak too soon… Oh hell, I can already see this one winning Best Graphic Novel in December 2018 when the Goodreads Choice Awards makes its appearance once again. And if that doesn’t happen, I will consider protesting. Unless, of course, something better gets

    This is the graphic novel I had no idea I was waiting for these past twenty years of my life. I have always loved stories about princes and princesses and kings and queens and lavish dresses—no wonder I couldn’t put this down.

    I don’t want to speak too soon… Oh hell, I can already see this one winning Best Graphic Novel in December 2018 when the Goodreads Choice Awards makes its appearance once again. And if that doesn’t happen, I will consider protesting. Unless, of course, something better gets published—as if. Well look at that, mama bear has come out to protect her babies.

    Prince Sebastian has a scandalous secret: By day, he is the son of the King of Belgium who must act accordingly and, unfortunately, find a princess to marry in order to form a fortunate alliance. But by night, he becomes Lady Crystallia, a fashionable woman who creates trends and is the light of any event.

    All thanks to Frances, Sebastian’s new dressmaker who can transform a boring fabric into a magic dress. Frances knows the prince’s secret, but she is the only one, and that is how it shall remain, or else he might lose this side of him forever. After all, who wants a prince who wears dresses? (I do.)

    I wasn’t that fan of Jen Wang’s IN REAL LIFE, a graphic novel about gaming, but this is a completely different creature. Everything about it is perfect and that is not something I get to say very often. But it’s true, from my point of view. I loved the characters, the story, the themes, the drawings, and even the ending (regardless of the fact that it’s not one hundred perfect realistic).

    Now that I think about it, I’m not sure I even breathed as I read this. I was in a state of full absorption.

    I read this book in under three hours and I’m literally drained. This book, omg. Where do I begin? Because I don’t personally go through what Sebastian went through, I can’t comment on the accuracy of the representation, but holy damn, was it amazing. And I ship them so much, my heart is exploding with love and acceptance. I WOULD 10/10 RECOMMEND!!!

    Absolutely charming.

  • Sarah Andersen

    The art in this! Just stunning! The colors, composition, the flowing linework...

    Meanwhile the story is modern while retaining the old-school sweetness and charm of a fairy tale (with a happy ending). Just incredible overall. Worthy of study by all illustrators and writers.

    WHAAAAAAT.

    Never in a million years did I expect that from this book.

    Literally awesome. Beautiful art. Just fantastic stuff.

    Read it read it read it.

    That's all I have to say.

    Bottom line: WHY HAVEN'T YOU READ THIS YET WHEN I JUST VERY POLITELY DEMANDED YOU DO SO.

  • Emily May

    I'm not exaggerating when I say books like this really do restore a little of my faith in humanity. It's a really cute story but, as a person who generally prefers "tense" and "gritty" over "cute" reads, it's not too saccharine as to be unbearable. This is a good graphic novel for readers who enjoy the occasional fun read like

    is about Frances, a Parisian dressmaker who suddenly receives an amazing opportunity to make dresses for royalty-- Prince Sebastian, to be precise!

    Together the pair dazzle around Paris at night, with Sebastian - or Lady Crystallia - wearing Frances's gorgeous creations. But by day he must go back to being the prince and Frances must keep his secret. Friendship grows between them, and then something else, but when Sebastian's secret threatens an amazing opportunity for Frances, things get complicated.

    Both characters are wonderful and lovable and, as readers shall soon see, they are surrounded by some pretty amazing secondary characters, too. The whole

    near the end might just be one of the best things I've ever seen XD

    I can't stop smiling.

    well, that was super cute and adorable. My first graphic novel for 2018 and it felt like a breeze of fresh air, I loved it

    Well,

    turned out to be the most delightful surprise of 2018 and for many reasons:

    1/ To say that graphic novels aren’t my cup of tea is an understatement. I don’t like them very much and I feel like I can’t get a lot out of them. it’s not like I’m judging them without trying, it’s actually quite the opposite, I tried many times

    well, that was super cute and adorable. My first graphic novel for 2018 and it felt like a breeze of fresh air, I loved it

    Well,

    turned out to be the most delightful surprise of 2018 and for many reasons:

    1/ To say that graphic novels aren’t my cup of tea is an understatement. I don’t like them very much and I feel like I can’t get a lot out of them. it’s not like I’m judging them without trying, it’s actually quite the opposite, I tried many times to read graphic novels and every time I can’t get through it, I just stop and feel totally disappointed and then I get scared of ever trying again but the prince and the dressmaker completely changed my mind. I’m so excited that I think I may try again with other graphic novels so probably I can use some recommendations Guys

    2/ I enjoyed the illustrations so much, they were beautiful and so endearing and they reminded me of some the cartoons I used to watch when I was a kid and that was a very nice feeling. Everything that reminds me of my childhood is something to love and cherish.

    3/ The story was actually engaging with really important messages about acceptance and how it’s liberating to be yourself and to find someone who sees the real you and doesn’t judge for it.

    4/ the characters are amazing and they never felt flat, not for a second. The fact that I loved them, cared about them and rooted for them is a proof that this graphic novel was a win for me. I’m always scared that I will get distracted by the illustrations that I won’t connect to the characters but it was not the case here because I enjoyed those pictures but what I enjoyed more is the different characters this novel introduced to me from the loyal Emile, to the lovely, talented and ambitious Frances to the price who wanted more than arranged marriage out of this life.
