I am certainly in love with some of the the new Marfy designs - although I have not sewn with them yet.
First - here are some of my favorites for Spring/Summer:
Marfy 2540: A wonderful coat - I'd love to make this.
Now, I use a custom flat pattern (or sloper) for my body to modify the patterns. So, the no hem allowance, no seam allowance, pre-cut isn't seemingly a big deal. With Marfy (as I understand it) you must also figure out how it goes together (which is fine with me) - that is to say - no directions. They are apparently Italian high fashion patterns that are for the "experienced sewer." Well, I've always been one to jump off the deep end of things.
My big concern is price? Do these patterns go on sale - they are about 16 - 18.00 each (a bit steep) in my book. Any tips? I'm not even sure my local Joann carries them (or any store nearby). . .
I'm interested in any experience anyone can share.
So, what do you think? Yeah! or Nay?
