Marfy Jacket is Done!


Marfy 9419.

I finished my Marfy jacket Tuesday night, except for adding a couple pairs of hooks and eyes above the zipper, which I did this morning. It's fine without the hooks, with a blouse; but to wear it alone, it needs the hooks. I like this jacket very much, and plan to make it again in a thinner fabric, which is what is recommended, and make the skirt also. I originally bought this fabric planning to make a quick little jacket that I could wear casually, and I also thought it would be cute to wear to horse shows. It's not quite so casual as it could be, but I think it's fine for anything. You can see more photos of it, including the silk chiffon lining, and the jacket worn open by clicking here.

I just found your terrific blog after a referral from Pam on the Pattern Master Chat list.

I was wondering where the Pendleton Outlet store is that is closing? I shop the one in Nebraska every few years...

Thanks, Phyllis

Phyllis, It's the one in Bellevue. They thought they would close mid-April, so I assume they're gone. I don't know if the one in Nebraska City will have fabric anymore or only finished clothing. Thanks for the kind comment. Isn't Pam the greatest?
