MARFY 2255

I am ready to start my next project. I would like to thank those of you who voted in my poll to help me decide what to sew next. The choices were MARFY 2255 (one of the free patterns with the purchase of the 2010 pattern catalog) in raw silk, Jalie 2908 stretch jeans, or Vogue 8379 wrap dress in stretch silk from Jones New York.

There was a tie for first place between the Jalie jeans and the MARFY dress. Since I have been so inspired by what I learned at the Expo about upper back fitting, I have decided to do the MARFY dress. The pattern has a center back seam. I altered it and cut the muslin. I will be stitching it together tonight. Stay tuned for photos!


  1. That is going to be a hot dress!!

  2. Fabulous! I can't wait to watch your progress. You will be making a muslin first, right? What color is the silk? Are you going to put a fancy trim on it?

  3. The silk is olive green, Becki. I haven't decided on the trim. I am thinking this would be a great place to use one of my endless embroidery designs.

    I have already cut the muslin.

  4. That would be beautiful with red and green or any other color. You are lucky to have an embroidery machine.
