Sew To Fit Marfy Challenge-Episode 3 Reveal

The Sew To Fit Marfy Challenge second reveal was Saturday 4/6/19 and we had a blast!  If you haven’t heard about this fun sewing challenge, read about it here and watch the reveal here. See all of the fabrics for this challenge here.

Becki kicked off the episode with Marfy 6052 a gorgeous jacket!

Becki works in a professional office.  She needed a new jacket but wanted a print for a little more style.  We selected
Darkest Navy/White Print Cotton Stretch Sateen.  The dark background with the abstract white circles is subtle enough for a professional office while showing off Becki’s creative side.  The combination of the interesting sleeve detail and the printed fabric was a perfect fit!

Andrea’s dress is soooo ready for spring!
Viewers made a wonderful selection for her boho style with Marfy 5124.

The fabric is a beautiful shade of yellow/orange that compliments her complexion.
The pop of pink in the flowers gives her a touch of her favorite color.

Pattern Alterations

Andrea is the fit expert!  Below are some of the changes she made to the pattern.  For more details, read her post here.

  • I proceeded to shorten the entire area by folding a tuck out of the bodice above the full bust. This adjustment was made on all upper bodice pattern pieces: Front, Front placket, Sleeve, and Back.
  • I added a full bust adjustment to only the “yoke” and adjusted the gathering at the yoke seam, in order to minimize the amount of fabric at the apex mound.
  • For the side seams, I did a pivot and slide out 3/4″ inch to give me more around the hips graduating back in towards the waist. No additional width was added on the sides near the bust line.

    I love seeing the final Marfy garments and the fabrics used. This challenge is inspiring me to sew some of my own Marfi patterns.
