I don’t know about you, Marfy patterns so intimidate me, but I have always wanted to sew one. When I heard about the Marfy Sew-Along over at A Challenging Sew, I was all like “yes!” I mean, what do I have to lose? The patterns are free and Leisa will hold my hand through the process, and she is covering couture construction, AND consulting with Susan Khalje . Yay, a win win! And guess what, I found fabric for the sew-along in my stash. Could it get any better?
Here is what I am thinking……
Trust me, these two pieces of fabric have been well aged in my stash. The fabric for the top is a silk crepe I bought in 2004. It is a yellowish green with these wonderful cacti that look like they have been added on with sidewalk chalk. I love this piece of fabric and I think it will make up nicely in the blouse.
I have had the silk tweed even longer. I bought it from G-Street Fabrics in the 90′s. I still think it is lovely. I just hope I have enough to make the jacket and the skirt.
The sew-along started today. I have my top pattern downloaded but that is it. You can find the first post by Leisa here. It’s not too late to join in!
