1 UFO Conquered -Marfy 1885

I was so in the mood for spring clothes!

The tomato plants have grown into bushes, the weather is dependably in the 80's and the grass is finally retuning to green (at least the weeds are).

When you are short on time and looking for a quick fix the only thing better than shopping your stash is shopping your UFO's.

What stood out for me most was this shirt!

Marfy 1885 and it looks fabulous!

The only thing more fabulous than the front is the back!

Love it!

The only things I had to finish was the arm binding and the sew on the buttons.

What was I waiting for? It looks great with that blue leather jacket.

I have decided to use the dress with the ruffle at the neck, and I am down to hand stitching the hem and lining the sleeves of that other jacket pluss buttons & buttonholes.

I will see how much I can get done this weekend


  1. Oh I love that yoke!!! That top is so cute. I'll have to check it out. Where do you get Marfy? Can I buy them at JoAnn's?

  2. Your top turned out great. It's funny how we seem to run out of steam on projects when we get to fiddly, not very exciting bits like sewing on buttons.

  3. Cute! I can't believe this even turned into a UFO. I miss the 80's - still in the 40s.

  4. This pattern would look great on you Regan, you can get them through Vogue patterns website. Or you can get them at the Marfy website which is So many of them would look really cute on you and I could so trade some for a necklace!
    Peggy, Don't yo miss early spring?

  5. That came out gorgeous and really suits you.

  6. Love the blouse (and jacket!). It would really be a test of my patience to match stripes like that. Its perfect!

  7. I love the play of stripes on the back. Very cool!

  8. Looks like a perfect fit. The diagonal stripes on the back yoke make such an interesting detail. Nice sewing!

  9. Why the heck was this a UFO?!?! It is gorgeous on you! Great effort, great result!

  10. I love what you did with the stripes! that looks fantastic!

  11. I adore the artistry of your shirt! It's hard to believe that this was a UFO.
