|Pattern Description: |
Expert level Sweetheart neckline dress with padded shoulders
44 Marfy only sell individual sizes
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Marfy do not provide instructions but do make some notations on the pattern.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I absolutely love Marfy patterns, this dress came together beautifully first in a muslin I made at home and then I made the actual dress in Baltimore with the amazing Susan Khalje again
Valentino Chiffon (top layer) Valentino Charmeuse (middle layer) and Crepe de Chine for lining
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
No alterations other than leaving the shoulders without padding, this pattern fitted perfectly......seriously ....perfectly!
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I would recommend this to anyone with lots of experience who wanted a challenge and had about 60 hours or more. There is a lot of hand gathering and hand stiching.
This is such a beautiful pattern, Marfy is a truly exceptional company, how often can anyone say a pattern fitted exactly?!?!? I am at a point were it is the only company I like to use. It saves so much time and stress. This dress has a lot working for it, the straps are flattering, the bodice would work for a small or larger bust , the tapered waist is lovely....I just can't say enough wonderful things about this dress.
