Test Driving a Marfy

It was such a pleasure to open the neat little package of one of my new Marfy patterns. A quick muslin later and I am still smiling. While I need to alter a little for my shape the overall fit feels very nice, like real clothing instead of some wonky fabric concoction. I have pinned out some width in the front since the pattern is drafted for a larger bust than mine. The cuff is just the right size to go with two small pleats and a little gather in the sleeve. I love it when a pattern works, it makes sewing fun.

All the pieces fit perfectly together and the pattern sews a garment that looks exactly like the concept drawing.

I'm thinking a silk twill, a bit of weight but still soft.
