    well i’ve just ordered my first Marfy pattern from italy, number 3127 to be precise.Its a one shouldered dress with drape detail and i’ve lusted after it since first discovering these patterns It cost €17 so i hope i can manage it??. I read the reviews after paying for it! stupid really lol. Apparently theres no instructions with it or picture so is for the more advanced sewer!! yikes , i normally sew without looking at instructions anyway as they’re often so misleading mind boggling and confusing!! vogue being a big culprit!! If i can sew it up i’m going to make at least three with different fabric and alterations. Has anyone made this one!! its absolutly gorgeous and was screaming buy me buy me so i obliged lol x

    Thank you so much for the nice comment. I would like to ask you a question since you sew for yourself and I never do.I bought a dress form and can’t get it to my size I was thinking of the packaging tape trick where you have some wrap you and place it on my form. Any hints or comments would be great. Love your style!!

    Hi Mary, This is Sarah (aka Polly the Parrot), enthusiastic fan of costumes. Thanks for the positive feedback on my parrot costume and last year’s pineapple costume. I wish I could make costumes all day long! I love how this site connects us across the oceans and continents. Happy Halloween!

    Your comments are so cool why not vary your photograph so we can see more of your clothes. You are the keenest commenter on Burda style. x
