Has anyone here ever sewn a Marfy pattern? I found them via Butterick and am in LOVE. I am, however, a bit intimidated by them. There are apparently no instructions, and they don’t have seam or hem allowances. They are pre-cut and single-sized. I really want to try, but don’t want to waste money on fabric or the pattern and end up failing like I did with the German coat of doom.
Here is a picture of the pattern I want to get:
I really want to make a winter coat this winter, one that I can wear with a petticoat and 50s dress. This is the best pattern I have found so far. But it scares me! The only reviews of Marfy patterns I can find are of blouses, which would be a lot easier than a coat.
Thoughts? Suggestions? Help, please! I’m in love with this coat and just can’t stand it!
