Today was one of those days that begin in neutral and head downhill. FAST.
And then the doorbell rang.This is Marfy’s 2014/15 Autumn-Winter catalogue with – wait for it – 20 free patterns.
TWENTY FREE PATTERNS.
The patterns come in sizes (IT) 42 through 50. Oh, happy day. I smell a queue….

Did you ever make one from this catalogue?
Hi, Tereza! I have made a couple of Marfy patterns, and they require doing all things ‘properly’, i.e. making a toile, fitting, taking said toile apart, etc., etc., etc.
So, no, I haven’t actually yet got up off my lazy butt to make one of these patterns.
But I will. I definitely will. Sometime in the (near) future.
Is that helpful, lol?
Yes! I recently bought the 16/17 catalogue but haven’t even sat down to really puzzle anything out. I want to play with their patterns too, but am a little intimidated to start.
I ordered this one as well and it arrived last week – I can’t decide the order of my list but I’ve had my hands on the catalogue every day trying to decide. It think it was a smart move to incl 20 patterns with the catalogue, I don’t think I would have bought it otherwise. This is my first and I’m looking forward to the challenge of sewing with no instructions. Looking forward to seeing what you make.
Oh my oh my oh my. I need to check out that catalogue – there’s nothing like a lack of instructions to make me learn. Have a wonderful time browsing and choosing.
I am going to order this one… so many free patterns!
I smell a queue too! oh wait, that’s mine haha 🙂 I didn’t realize Marfy had a printed catalogue – then again, I’m not overly familiar with them, but it looks like a great find! 🙂
I also ordered their catalog, just for the free patterns! Last year’s also has free patterns, now my sewing queue just doubled… story of my life 🙂 But I’m optimistic about making one of the free-pattern dresses, they are really cute!
I liked the dress patterns, too. All the tunics – not so much – so I’m thinking I’ll have new dresses this year! I didn’t realize their catalogs came with free patterns, so this may be a bad new habit….
How wonderful!!! Yeah, I can smell a queue too!!
I once saw a Marfy magazine-catalogue in a newstand in Santander…I thought the designs were too elegant for me and didn´t buy it…That was three years ago.They never had it in again. Missed opportunities!
Buy it online, Merche! I totally get the looks are not for my lifestyle, generally, but it is super fun looking and browsing and dreaming and who can resist 20 free patterns?!
What a lovely treat! I’ve only used one Marfy pattern so far – which I blogged about here: http://alittleofwhatyou.blogspot.co.uk/2013/08/wedding-dress-progress.html I’m very tempted to order this catalogue myself.
Wow, that’s a bonus! I’ve never tried a Marfy – so I’ve a list too!
Can’t wait to see your makes! I got my catalog today and am going to spend a leisurely Wednesday evening curled up on the couch with it 🙂
Fun! I just took a quick look through, but haven’t made any decision yet.
20 Free patterns!! Lucky you! Or overworked and busy you, depending on who ropes you into sewing them for themselves, lol.
haha! I haven’t put the catalogue out for reading pleasure yet. My little secret for a while!
What?? I didn’t know Marfy offered free patterns with their catalog!
Me, either. I think this is the first, time, but I could be wrong….
Cool – I did not know Marfy had a catalog that included their patterns within. Thanks for sharing!
Congrats! Can’t wait to see what you sew first!
Got mine, love it! I can’t wait to see what you are ordering first. Lots of cool dresses.
Jealous! Have fun planning your new sewing endeavors!
I received mine yesterday. 😀 I already have a few favorites picked for summer sewing. FYI: A Challenging Sew has a Marfy sew along going right now. (I’ve linked it on my blog.) Have fun. Hope your day continues to get better.
Yay for your copy! Such fun getting little perks in the mail. I’ll have to sit down with a cup of tea and browse through them all. I’m following along as Leisa shares her Marfy expertise. Great fun!
