It’s that time of the year again… where I lurk and refresh the Marfy website every couple of hours in the faintest hope they have uploaded the latest patterns of the season like they said they would. I even checked multiple times on the weekend. Good thing I did, because they uploaded the range yesterday!
Moving away from my lame-ness – here are some of my favourites :)
Of course being a winter collection, there were plenty of coats – and I LOVE both having and wearing coats! The lines of F2888 (left) are gorgeous and I really like the simplicity of the neckline and the curved front hem. The raglan sleeves of F2918 (right) looks like it’s stolen a lot of aspects of the traditional trench and catapulted it into something more modern, I love the yoke treatment at the back:
There is also no shortage of long-sleeved stretch dresses with a bit of waist definition – a style I really like and feel comfortable wearing. The draped neckline on the sheath dress (F2940, left) designed for stretch fabric (I’m thinking ponti knit) looks like it would be comfortable, flattering, warm for winter and office appropriate too. F2935 (right) is similar, but I might be transferring that front split to the back were I to make it!
The mod sheath dress (F2917, left) is something straight out of the 70’s, and I love it! It almost has a bit of Chinese Cheongsam styling with the neckline treatment too. The keyhole style neckline at the front of F2924 is really different, and could make a great biker-jacket interpretation:
I’m currently grappling with fitting a vintage dress pattern with kimono sleeves – so the emergence of several patterns with this type of sleeve piqued my curiosity, like this draped neckline sheath dress that reminded me of a more practical version of Stella McCartney’s Miracle Dress (F2940, left) and the jacket (F2930, right):
I like the idea of the draped hooded top of F2913 (left) being used for sportswear, and the v-neck top (F2879, right) has mass appeal for comfortable everyday wear:
I’ve just started work on one of the nine patterns I ordered from them this week, and it’s a LOT more complex that the pleated-front blouse I made from them back in January. More on that to come real soon.
Have you tried a Marfy pattern yet? You know you want too!!
