Pattern Review: Marfy 2464 Skirt

Threads magazine - 159 – Feb./Mar. 2012 Issue

Style Tip: For a focal point, face the ruffle with a fun, contrasting fabric.

This review was originally featured in Threads #159 (February/March 2012).

Marfy 2464

This formfitting, straight skirt is a simple design with a distinctive ruffled and draped mock wrap front piece. For walking ease, the seam below the ruffle is left partially open. Although there are no instructions, seam, or hem allowances in any pattern in this company’s collection, this particular design works up quickly and easily. Due to the close fit, our tester recommends using a sturdy fabric with stretch and a good drape. For a different look, lighter and delicate fabrics are appropriate as well. They produce a soft ruffle that drapes well, and if stability is needed simply underline the skirt. The ruffle’s wrong side shows when worn, so finish it with a tiny rolled hem or a clean finish. This skirt is perfect for pairing with a feminine blouse or a fitted sweater.

(Sized European 4246 for hips 36.239.4 in.)
