Sigh, as always! Excellent construction,"as always". I know that you put more effort than we see.I am glad that we have many sewists that are this talented!

Nice style and a beautiful fabric ... someday I hope to graduate to Marfy's!

What a beautiful job you did on this top. I like the longer sleeves and the distinctive features of the pattern. Marfy patterns are challenging enough without having to contend with drafting errors as well. Did you make a muslin? As always, your review is terrific - thanks!

What a gorgeous top. And, of course, your sewing techniques are to be envied. Beautifully done.

Your top is so gorgeous! I love the color, details, everything. I anticipate your reviews just like each issue of Threads.

Another great looking tunic/top. Love the pocket details. You do an excellent job with Marfy patterns.

This is a blouse I would want to buy...only I probably could not afford it! Stunning job.

Another lovely top Debra - did you ever get the tape I sent you?

Another great looking project. The fabric is such a pretty color in the picture. I bet it's beautiful in person with the cross-dyed feature of the fabric.

Another beauty, love the fabric and colour.

The 2007 spring/fall catalog of Marfy has no patterns that I can find smaller than size 42, so those who wear size 4-6 off-the-rack will have to alter a larger size. The book did have maybe 30% with some sizes over 46, but they frequently skipped a size or two. By far, most only come in sizes 42, 44, 46.

Beautiful, I want one. You don't say the sizing range. Does it go up to 48/50? You've done a wonderful job on your top.

Beautiful work! I haven't tried a Marfy pattern yet, but it's on my list, though your comment about the size range is discouraging. Love the detail and your thoroughness. Thanks!

I always look forward to seeing your garments and reading your reviews, and this one does not disappoint. A refreshing summer top with interesting lines.

Sorry, wanted to edit text, and doubled it.

Wonderful blouse. I really love this one. Thanks for the extensive Marfy reviews. Received my first Marfy pattern this week and was surprised that it not even included a drawing! But I'm going to try, also thanks to your reviews.

Very nicely done. I just laid this pattern out in a cotton shirting. I like your longer sleeves, I may do that. Thank you so much for the review.

Cheryl...there are no instructions at all. Only pre-cut pattern pieces with a few words on the pattern pieces but not many. Only one size too with no seam allowances. Alas, I wish Vogue would just buy their styles and offer them that way, but not likely to happen.

What a lovely pattern. You, as always did a beautiful job. I love the pocket detail.

I loved this pattern. It's great to see this one made up. Wonderful color and beautiful shirt.

What a lovely blouse and what a nice job. I bet it looks great on you...
Cheryl Reeves said... (7/15/07 12:01 PM) Reply
Wow, I love this top. Your fabric choice really shows off all of the design details and stitching. I've never used a Marfy pattern. When you say there are not instructions, does that also mean there are no pictures showing construction techniques?

I love your Marfy reviews ... they always make me want to go try the ones in my stash! I love the colour of this linen as well. Very summer.
