Marfy Dress

Added Jun 5, 2014

by Ellen Hatteland

Nedre Vats, Norway






I bought the newest Marfy catalogue and this was one of the pattern included. I have used rips ties around the neck, sleeves and over the seams, and I have put the seam edges under the rips ties instead of the usual way. I have used the same cotton poplin as my handbag
Cheers for summer :)

Material Notes

Cotton poplin




Spring, Summer
Garment Type
Casual, Preppy

    I LOVE the colors in this. And I didn’t know that Marfy had a catalog – I’ll have to look for it!

    Adorable work, Ellen! One of your best ones. I’m impressed with your outfit and the way you represented it here. I guess Marfy could borrow your dress to boast with their patterns in real :-))

    It is a nice combination between the two fabrics (printed one and blue one). Congratulation on beeing featured, you really deserves it my dear friend ;-))

    Very pretty dress and fabric. I love your version without the middle bias tape, I think three lines of bias tape is way too much for this dress :) You did a nice job on piping and you look wonderful in this dress :)

    Another gorgeous dress ellen. The fabric is gorgeous. Is it worth getting the marfy catalogue? I was considering buying it. I have one marfy pattern and i will get round to sewing it up. This is so lovely on you. You look fab x

      I love Burda patterns, but Marfy is also right for my size, and just looking and getting inspiration in the catalogue is great! I wish it was possible to buy BurdaStyle catalogue as this! The Marfy included 20 pattern this time and it was nice patterns :) Thanks a lot for your lovely comments Mary!

    Such a nice dress on you; all ready for warmer weather. The fabric and colour is awesome. Nice job on the rips ties, and I like that you didn’t put them down the front.
