Pattern Review: Marfy 2179 Dress

Nov 09, 2010

Style Tip: Make this dress from a fabric featuring a directional print, such as a plaid or stripe, to highlight the bias pieces.

This review was originally featured in Threads #152 (December 2010/January 2011).

Marfy 2179

This unique dress features draped, bias-cut cap sleeves with pleats that cascade into gentle folds. The silhouette is a classic V-neck sheath dress with princess seams. For extra style, one view includes optional bias-cut side panel pockets that drape from the waistline and are pleated into a banded hemline. The second view is the same dress without the pockets or bottom band. As always with Marfy, there are no seam or hem allowances included on the pattern, so take care when cutting out your pieces. There are also no instructions included, but this dress’s basic shape and its pieces make it achievable for advanced beginning sewers.

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