      If you follow poppykettle’s blog above, there is a link to the Marfy web site and you can order the patterns from Italy. I ordered one this morning and it was very easy. Now I can’t wait for it to arrive.

      Oh, wonderful! Last I looked at Marfy patterns online, a couple of years back, they were on the Butterick/McCall/Vogue site and didn’t ship to Australia. This is great news! Thanks for sharing :)
