Pattern Review: Marfy 1961 Coat

Threads magazine - 146 – Dec. 2009/Jan. 2010 Issue

Style Tip: Make this coat from a taffeta for evening or a colorful plaid paired with a velvet collar for a cozy winter style.

This review was originally featured in Threads #146 (December 2009/January 2010).

Marfy 1961

This unique coat features a dramatic collar that’s sure to get noticed. The fit is European with well-proportioned high armholes and fitted shoulders. The coat flares nicely away from the body without looking bulky. Feminine darts start at the armhole and end at hipline where double-welt pockets begin. The coat is fully lined, and the collar forms a capelet when the coat is open and a billowy scarf when buttoned. Marfy patterns don’t have printed sewing instructions, but the pieces are letter-coded to aid in alignment and matching of the pieces. Our tester says that despite the lack of written instructions, the seams line up well, and all the pieces are perfectly matched.

(Sized European 42–48 for busts 34.6–39.4 in. and hips 36.2–40.9 in.)
