Oooh, I like the details on this one. Your resulting interpretation is a knockout.

Nice to see your experiences with Marfy. I'm also just starting with Marfy patterns. Like your version of this top. It's flattering you.

Very flattering style and sewn up beautifully. Looking forward to some more Marfy reviews, I've loved both so far!

That looks so good on you. I just received my Fall catalogue, and now maybe I might try it. I really am hooked on Marfy patterns. The fit is so great.

Definitely very flattering. It makes the "ladies" look good and your waist look super tiny! Nice job in the back.

It looks great and the details are really unusual (especially in a knit shirt). I have a Marfy pattern that says "pleat" where I think it means "gather" as well. So which other Marfy patterns did you order? What reviews can we look forward to? :-)

I WAS sitting on the fence about this pattern but after seeing yours I'm convinced. I wasn't planning on the cutting the lower bits on the bias either!

I enjoy hearing about Marfy patterns & your top looks great.

KathleenS: I was going to message you with what I ordered from Marfy but you don't have messages switched on so I can't. I don't want to pressurise myself by telling everyone what I bought :-o , but I whittled it down to seven. Some of those are quite long-term because I have a plan to make a suit - sometime. I even have some fabric. But don't expect it anytime soon! Other than that I fancied that pin-stripe piss-take skirt and also a couple of the more casual items.

Your shirt looks fabbo. The only thing I would query is the placement of the sleeve head ..... too big or supposed to be a dropped sleeve?

Looks very smart on you. I wondered from the picture if a stretchy knit would be difficult. Thank you for your detailed review, you look great!

Helen (near Sydney): I think it is not that the pattern is too big exactly but the super-stretchiness and drapiness of the fabric. I think the shoulder it is being stretched by the weight of the arm, and it might have helped to stabilise the shoulders more strongly. Put it this way - the shoulder was in the right place before I sewed the arm on! :-o

Oooh! This is lovely. I like all your fancy bits very much!

I really love your top. Fabulous!

julesberry said...
Helen (near Sydney): I replied and said I thought it was fabric stretch rather than the pattern, and although I think this contributes - the shoulders become more dropped with wear - I am wearing the top today and have decided you are right - the shoulders and back-neck together are around a cm too long.

If you can be bothered to email me I'd love to know which patterns. I'm so nosey. But it doesn't matter if not. I'll show you the Marfy pattern I've had for four years and haven't sewn yet if you like. Oops. You're way ahead of me.

Thank you for persuading me off the fence on this one (and the skirt). I had trouble visualising how the top would look in real fabric, now I know... stunning. Really love it. I too would love to know which patterns you bought as I am very nosy.
