    Beautiful! I have wanted to try a Marfy pattern for a long time but most of the time my projects are a bit more closer to home, it is alot cheeper to sew when you can get a pattern on sale for $2 than $20 but it is still an idea I want to try. Was it difficult to work with?

      Thank you….if I am honest I have a couple hundred patterns bought on sale for $ from the last six years and i’ve never used one that does not need altering in some way. Marfy definitely cost more but its almost like a custom pattern. Nothing needed changing, no alterations, or time wasted. If you can use any pattern without needing detailed instructions I would say go for it, they are amazing and you start to see just how real pattern making should be done……

      Thank you! I found the fabric in Mood NYC, unfortunately though they never seem to sell it online.
