Pattern Review: Marfy 2916 Trench Coat

Threads magazine - 169 - Oct./Nov. 2013

Sewing tip: Before starting a Marfy design, write a sewing strategy. List the general construction steps and sequence.

This review was originally featured in Threads #169 (October/November 2013).

Marfy 2916

This form-fitting coat combines a woven body with sweater-knit sleeves. It has a self-fabric belt, shoulder yokes, dropped sleeves, epaulets, front and back princess seams with 3-inch French bust darts, and inseam welt pockets. Our tester recommends interfacing the collar and collar stand so it doesn’t collapse. She also suggests adding a back-neck facing and lining to give the coat a finished look and make it easier to slide on and off. As always with Marfy, there are no instructions, illustrations, or seam allowances, but the pattern is labeled with the match points. This design is for coating fabrics, wool tweed, and medium-weight wools. For the sleeves, opt for sweater knits. Avoid stiff fabrics as the coat is close-fitting. The sample coat was sewn in wool herringbone and a wool knit from Mood Fabrics (

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