Pattern Review: Marfy 2758 Refined Dress

Threads magazine - 166 - April/May 2013 Issue
Article Image

Sewing tip: A lighter alternative to lining the yoke with self-fabric is to bind the neck and armhole edges.

This review was originally featured in Threads #166 (April/May 2013).

Marfy 2758

This dress has a yoke with a pleated neckline, extended shoulders with a slight sleeve cap, center-front opening with buttonholes, partial princess seams in front and back, and self-facing welt pockets. Marfy designs have no illustrations besides the catalog fashion sketch, no written directions, and no seam or hem allowances. The key match points and notches are printed on the pattern tissue and all align on this pattern. This dress is quick to sew. The only hurdles a beginner might have are the angled, pleated pockets. Select a lightweight novelty fabric (eyelet, jacquard, brocade) for the yoke and a crisp cotton or linen for the dress body. The sample was sewn in shirting, with a cotton eyelet yoke.

(Sized European 42-46 for busts 34.6-37.8 in. and hips 36.2-39.4 in.)

Sewing Tip: A lighter alternative to lining the yoke with self-fabric is to bind the neck and armhole edges.
