Marfy Jacket 3350 – fabrics

While searching my fabric stash for a fabric I could use to make the jacket based on  Marfy 3350 pattern I came across these two ones.

The blue/white fabric is loose woven wool bland.

This brownish one is linen bland. It is more stiff than the above one.

Looking at the qualities and properties of both fabrics I think I will go for the blue/white one. It is softer and looking at my wardrobe – I have much more combination possibilities.

But everything depends on the amount of fabric – I have to check if I have enough of this blue/white fabric to make it the way I want.

The brownish one will become either a dress or jacket/skirt combination.

Meanwhile the book Couture Sewing: The Couture Skirt: more sewing secrets from a Chanel collector by Claire Shaeffer has arrived.  It went so fast!

Something is telling me that this will be my next project … soon.

Which one would you advice?

I decided to give the pants a break and work on my new couture challenge – Jacket by Marfy 3350. It is a short semi-fitted jacket with 3/4 sleeves that form a square yoke. I will try to make it from a boucle or tweed. I am sure I can find something in my fabric stash. Continue reading “Another couture challenge”

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.
