Fabulous, as usual for you Debra. After reading all of your Marfy reviews, I have ordered the catalogue and I'm going to give them a try. I have hesitated a long time due to the lack of instruction, but I sew with Cynthia Guffey's patterns and the instructions are almost non-existent. Soooo, here goes...

Another beautiful jacket. This does seem a little easier than some you have tackled. Very helpful information.

This is lovely. It is very similar to jacket made by an Italian designer, Rosalie Varo, based in Adelaide, South Australia whose styles are often Euro-inspired. Hers had no collar.

It would be so great if several of us could meet over is fun, though, that we come from all over the world.

Debra, this is lovely. The fabric is beautiful! I agree with others who want to come and visit and admire your wardrobe over a cup of coffee!

Your closet must be overflowing. You've made some really beautiful outfits. I always enjoy your reviews and the clothes are always scrumptious

Your jacket is gorgoeus! When do you have time to sew such beautiful garments and find so many beautiful pieces? I always amazed and inspired by your work. I think we are about the same size with the same pattern adjustments. Any time you clean out your closet, feel free to mail me any throw outs!!!!

Very pretty! Marfy's are sometimes hard to figure out as no directions but the fit for me has been the best right out of the envelope. Wish they were easier to get!

Debra! This is just gorgeous! Better than what is on the envelope!

Very lovely. I would love to see a picture of it on you. In fact, I would love to see your closet just to enjoy the colors.

This is one beautiful jacket! I am scared to death of Marfy, but I would think using your detailed review would get me through it. Thank you!

This looks really cut in the print. Thank you for posting your instructions with the review, I have this pattern for a pinstripe and I was wondering how to do the tie without a topstitch. Thanks for another great review!
