Marfy 1245 - I am so screwed

15 pieces for a jacket! *sigh* I wish that I were attracted to easy things!
This doesn't even include everything. I see the front band, but I guess the front and back horizontal bands are overlays.

What do you think?

This is probably going to keep me up at night!

Oh well, I was looking for something to do with my time anyway.

I am done with my cute little blue and white shirt, except for the buttons and buttonholes. I will post pictures when that is done.

As for my gray jacket...

I took the sleeves out, moved them in to make the shoulders narrower and made the sleeves narrower by about 3/8. I have the first sleeve sewn and it does seem to fit better. Peggy told me that that would work, and I knew that was what it needed, I just didn't want to admit it.


  1. Yes, that will definitely keep you up at night, but its going to be worth it when you've got it done. And I am sure you will triumph over it. I checked the catalogue and it says your jacket has "denim trim". The entry for my latest jacket (1625) describes the strips on the waist inset and the lapels as "trim" and I didn't get any pattern pieces for those either. Like you, I was expecting to get pieces. I suspect that where the description says trim, you get no pattern piece. Which of course begs the question, how wide and how long, and how to affix. Much as I love Marfy, and I too gravitate to the most complex designs, sometimes I just wish they told you a teeny bit more.

  2. I figure that even if they told me more, it would be in Italian and I wouldn't understand it anyway.
    I think that I am going to extend the front band to closer to the hem, then start by making the trim as wide as the front band for balance.
