Marfy 2155 progress, aka the thrill of sheer fabrics.

After a long, hard day at work, the last thing that I want to do is come home to sew those convoluted, unpredictable patterns! I love my Marfy's, straight out of the envelope with no muslin, no re-cutting, little guessing or letting it out later.
This is the fabulous twist sleeve shirt that I posted earlier.
I took this earlier, I also have the collar sewn on but didn't wait to take the picture. It is a stylish one with long lines and a tight neck curve. I might make this again in white just for the collar.
Because of the sheer nature of the fabric, I created a back yoke pattern by folding the pattern straight across the back right at the side back seam.
I will get the collar finished then maybe even the sleeves. The armhole looks encouraging, it doesn't gap or bag.
For tonight, I am ready to rest up for work tomorrow. Working with bright pink soft, smoothe fabric is good relaxation.

I can breathe again!

Finally, I can breathe and eat again!

Funny thing about this test, my strongest section was the essay section. I passed an accounting test because of my writing skills.

Oh yeah, and 2 years of PMS is finally over.
It was such a beautiful day for it, apparently there is a bright yellow, warm thing in the sky. Hmmm, not all accountants burst into flames in direct sunlight.

My sweet husband brought me flowers and chocolate:

For some reason, it reminds me we're almost out of vodka.

I got back to working on my Marfy shirts. I am on 2155 'cuz the thread is pink.

Because the fabric is quite thin I am doubling the center front and I made a back yoke. I will try to get it far enough together that I can post a picture this week.

I passed, I passed, I passed, I PASSED! 75, 80, 80, 76!

I just have to take a couple of months and take the ethics exam, finish my work experience paperwork and figure out how I am going to celebrate!
