Marfy top 1913 in making

It was busy day. Having my Red Point Tailor shop on Etsy I may participate in different activities organised by Etsy.

In May Etsy organises ETSY school on SEO where we work on improving our shops to be better visible for search engines. I was paired with Richende, who is selling funky, modern bracelets in her shop RichBracelets.

We have got a manual where some of the exercises have to be done together, so yesterday direct after work I went to Enschede (NL) to meet Richende. It was nice to meet other Etsian and exchange experiences.

Afterwords I went to an atelier of Bas van Loo, who is making one of the garments for a BMA challenge. He would like me to make buttons to his garment. I needed a piece of a fabric to find good colour of glass. Nice challenge for me.

After coming home and taking a short break I proceeded with the Marfy 1913 top. I decided to underlined the front with very thin viscose lining – unfortunately I did not have silk china in gray. It feel and look great – much better then trico in skin colour.

I stay stitched front and back necklines and armholes, made 2 rows of stitches for gathering front neckline.

In order to be able to put this top on the opening has to be made at the back.

I took a piece of the same fabric and put it right side on the right side of the back along the center back line. I sew it close to the center back line.

Next I cut in between the stitching lines and turn it to the wrong side.The edges are turned under so there are no row edges. Now I have to hand stitch the band to the fabric.

As Meisje was trying to get my attention I had to stop. He possessed me and my ironing bord totally.

  2. I don’t have a cat, but I do have to put my ironing board away when my son comes home from school, because it’s in his room!
