Marfy Top 1913

I forgot to share the Marfy blouse/top 1913 I have made this year.

This top I have worn very often this summer. It was the perfect combination with the silk skirt. I like the colours and pattern on the fabric and the style of the blouse.
I will for sure make more tops based on this pattern. I won’t be the first one – check here different version of this top made by Leisa.

I decided to order two Marfy patterns – I just could not resist. Continue reading “Marfy Top 1913”

Summer Top – one of many?

This project is accomplished – summer top based on Marfy 1913 is ready and I am wearing it today.

It is made of viscose crepe and as it is sheer I decided to put the very fine viscose lining at the front. I am glad I did it.

I have finished the seams with a false French seam. If you would like to know how to do this you may check this great tutorial by Kate from the Couture Academic.

The back opening turned out nice – it is finished by hand.

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 have chosen the crepe viscose with this beautiful pattern.

The pattern pieces are cut off – I only think of cutting the front piece twice as the fabric is a little sheer.

Unless I will lined the front. I have to think of this option and check what kind of lining I have.

This summer weather just calling to make more tops. I have seen a lot of tops made of the Marfy 1913 pattern and as this one is on my list for some time – I have decided to make it. I have just finished the pattern putting together. Now I have to pick up a nice fabric from my stash.
