Pattern Review: Marfy 2591 and 2584, Stylish Vest and Tunic
This review was originally featured in Threads #160 (April/May 2012).
Patterns from this company are fashion forward and always interesting. With creative seaming details, this ensemble does not disappoint. Sporty and form-fitting, this vest, Marfy 2591, has western-like elements, a convertible collar, zip front, princess seams, a slightly off-the-shoulder yoke detail with epaulets, side-entry patch pockets with a decorative flap, and topstitching on most seams. The slim-cut pant, Marfy 2584, tapers at the ankle. It has a set-in waistband, narrow darts at the waist, slanted pockets, a fly-front zipper, and a unique chevron-style double yoke. As always with this company, there are no instructions or seam or hem allowances, but the pattern pieces are well marked with notches and letters to match with corresponding sections. The vest and pants at left are made of midweight cotton and spandex blended poplins.
(Sized European [top] 42- 46 for busts 34.6-37.8 in. and [pant] 42, 46, 50 for hips 36.2, 39.4, 42.5 in.)
Style Tip: Our tester envisions the top made in denim, leather, suede, or fl eece and the pant in denim, wool, or legging-like knits.
