Marfy 9462 progress

Love the collar to death!
I sewed the outer edge of the collar (used 3/8" seam allowances) and lapel together.  Then I sewed the under collar to the shirt and hand stitched the inside seam to the inside of the seam.  It lays beautifully.  The waist needs a little tweaking and I need some sleeves, petal sleeves I think.

More sewing on this and those pants this weekend.

I love Friday nights, the weekend possibilities are endless. I know that between now and Sunday night a thousand distractions and emergencies will arise and I probably won't get that much done.  But, from where I sit on Friday night I can have a while new wardrobe by Monday morning, and spend hours working out at the gym.
This weekend in particular will crawl by.  My new Marfy 2014-2015 catalog is on its way.  In fact, its in Louisville clearing customs.  Don't ya just love UPS online tracking!  I should have exciting pics posted by Monday night.

  1. Ah yes. All my plans for late night sewing on Friday vaporize as soon as the dinner dishes are done. Then the sofa starts calling. ...

  4. Ah, I'm not the only one thinking I can sew up a wardrobe in a weekend ;) . Could be sewing now instead of reading blogs for example... but too much inspiration to miss. Love this collar too and a new Marfy catalogue, wonderful. Look forward to see a bit from it.

  9. Love the way the collar lays. it's beautiful. I'm always afraid of the crossover blouses. Being busty, they never lay right. Yours is perfect. (Got my Marfy catalog yesterday. Already dreaming of summer sewing.)
