Eye candy

Today the new Marfy 2010 catalogue was in my mailbox. What a pleasure to browse this catalogue. The design details are so special. There is a wide variety of patterns. The most recent Vogue collection had very few patterns for styles that I would actually wear. I’m just not a dress-person.

Marfy certainly has a lot of dresses too, but also other patterns that are suited for a more casual lifestyle. And otherwise there are little details that give inspiration to use on other garments. A few examples (not necessary suited for me).

ETA: this catalogue has almost 200 pages, with at least one pattern on each page. And like Nancy says in the comments: Marfy has gorgeous coats patterns.
Meli88a: I think anyone can order from the Marfy site. I can order most through the Dutch www.naaipatronen.nl, and assume they will not have all patterns in stock, and order from Marfy too.

This skirt reminds me of the skirt in the december issue of burda, the pleat is deeper and has buttons, and like the illustration I think it would be wonderful in a plaid.

You might know I love special necklines, the blouse certainly has this and i like the accented seamlines.

Great design detail and the top is a nice variation on twist top.

Two jackets with nice details.

  2. Gorgeous details. I like both blouses, but with my short neck only the second one would look good on me. Sigh. The one with the high neck is fabulous. I may have to purchase this catalog. They have some of the best coat designs.

  3. I love the Marfy catalogues for the eyecandy. I don't have the latest one but still drool over my older ones.

  4. I love the details on the designs you've chosen. Are you able to order direct from Marfy? I have seen some Marfy patterns offered via Vogue in the U.S., but they're not as special as these!

  5. I love their dress designs this year too! I have my catalog, but I don't have my pattern order yet. I really love their blouses as always! Especially 2155 and 2315. I think that they are a little edgier this year which is refreshing.
    I don't know why but Vogue never posts the very best patterns.

  7. Thanks for sharing those pics. Are the patterns in the Marfy catalogue the same as is offered on Vogue? Also, isn't it true that there are no instructions with Marfy, just pattern pieces? I was just wondering because I am very interested in Marfy.

  9. You're so right, the details here are gorgeous! I was thinking about getting this catalogue the next time I order from Naaipatronen since I really liked the freebie patterns this year.

  13. My local newsstand dealer told me to come back on Tuesday to pick up my copy and now I'm even more excited after seeing these pics! I buy a Marfy catalogue every year. Do I make anything from it? Nooooo...but I love the inspiration and the interesting details! Thanks for sharing a few of your favorites.

  14. Sigh, I love Marfy for all their details, too. Maybe I'll get with Carolyn and figure out how to get one sent up from NYC.
