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?

While waiting for Couture Sewing: The Couture Skirt: more sewing secrets from a Chanel collector by Claire Shaeffer (it should arrived within few days!)

and watching the Great British Sewing Bee (love it!) …

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”

Starting up simply with Marfy

Suddenly I have found myself browsing through the latest Marfy catalog 2014/2015 and after few minutes I have marked quite a number of pages with ideas for future projects.

Did I tell you already I love Marfy? No? – YES, I LOVE MARFY PATTERNS!

I have started with a top 3408 and a dress – 0303. Both patterns are included in the Marfy catalog as well as available in PDF format from Marfy website.

Becki has made a top based on this dress patterns and as I like the idea I am going to do the same.

So far only paper patterns are ready so let’s take the next step – muslins.

I think then I will follow on this jacket – 3350. I will order the pattern – I really like the construction.

It feels so good making sewing plans and actually sewing again!

I know I have already said this but as my French jacket progressing I will repeat it – I love my jacket.

The trims have arrived and now the trim is attached to the sleeves and the edges of the jacket.

A Marfy Free Pattern Sew Along with Leslie from A Challenging SewSeeing this announcement reminded me about my unfinished Marfy summer dress as well as Marfy coat pattern 3177 I have purchased recently. I have to wait for the summer few months so I decided to pick up the coat project first. During the fabric market I have bought the black cashmere for it and lining. As the weather forecasts are not getting better it is hight time to make a coat.
