There is Joy in the sewing room this afternoon: Marfy, the high-style Italian pattern company, has updated its website so now you can order current and past catalogs and search for patterns in your size and category.
You can also search catalogs you might not have in your library. That’s really cool.
The website lets you choose which language you prefer: English, French, Spanish or Italian.
Check it out! Marfy Website
I just ordered the Annual 2013/2014 catalog and a special pattern I have wanted since last summer
The major complaint I had with Marfy pattern books: it might take an hour to find patterns in my size. Years back, my husband would go fishing more often than he does now. I’d take my Marfy catalogs: he’d fish and I’d mark Marfy pages with Post-Its. It worked out well.
I also appreciate not having to order through a 3rd party. I never could be sure of the timing of arrival.
I have made one Marfy so far, Marfy 1877, in Spring of 2010, purchased in spring of 2009.
It went together so well and I love wearing it.
I’ve blogged extensively about it’s construction. You can start here, links in the post will take you to more information.
Now back to cutting and sewing wool double knit pants from my new hand drafted pattern. The muslin fit well last night. I trust I haven’t gained or lost weight over night 🙂
