The Marfy Catalog
Extraordinary source of inspiration for fashion operators, aspiring designers and precious reference book for fashion schools, sewing courses, dressmakers and passionate sewers, Marfy sewing patterns magazine-catalog is published once a year in mid-January and contains both the Spring/Summer collection and the designs for the following Autumn/Winter season.
Printed on large format 24 x 34 cm ( 9 ½ x 13 ⅜ inches) glossy 130 g paper, our catalogue is 1 cm thick (⅜ inch) and weighs more than 1 kg (2.4 lbs).
You will find no adverts on its pages – just 200 pages of pure creativity!
The paper version of our magazine also features many more designs and patterns than our website, and you can count on 250 fashion creations for the Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter collection. Many of the designs are suitable for both seasons, giving you an interchangeable wardrobe that will last all year round. In the Marfy Evergreen special edition the creations are nearly 400.
Each design features a full-page image that shows every detail of the garment clearly – including the cuts, the darts and much, much more. The garments are shown from both the front and the back, so that its construction is easy to understand, and to serve as a reference while you are making it in fabric.
Furthermore, the Marfy catalogue contains 10 free patterns in 5 sizes (20 in the 2014/15 collection) – all new designs suitable for every type of wardrobe. These patterns alone make it worth investing in the catalogue – you only have to think how much they would cost to buy separately!
They will also give you the opportunity to try out our patterns, to understand what they look like, how easy to follow the instructions are, and which size will be right for you. You will be amazed by the wearabilty of our garments – the fruit of our extensive research, talent and expertise. Our clothes will speak louder than a thousand words – the dress, the coat, and especially the jacket. Admire how its grain line hangs, its beautiful proportions, its balanced shape and its perfectly fitting drapes.
Remember that the free models that come with the magazine are printed in several sizes, and will need to be traced onto pattern paper before you can cut them out of fabric, unlike our individual patterns, which you can buy ready cut and just the right size. For more information, and to see what our ready-cut patterns look like, click here.
The patterns in every collection remain on sale for 3 years after their publication, and even afterwards while stocks last. This way, your catalogue will have a long and fruitful life – another reason why it is so robust – and you will always be able to choose from among over 1000 designs! What’s more, our designs are so trendy that they often even pre-empt the fashion world, so it is always best to have more than one collection on hand…
