WHAT DO MARFY PATTERNS LOOK LIKE?
Marfy patterns are made in tissue paper in single size and arrive to you folded as an envelope.
All Marfy sewing patterns are stamped and marked with all the directions you need. Marks are in four languages: Italian, English, French and Spanish.
These markings include also notches, not only for gathering and loosening the fabric, but also at the bust, waist and hip points. We show you how to position the fabric grain and where to put the darts and pleats, along with each piece of the pattern from the front and back pieces to pockets, from collars to the tiny accessory straps and other details. 
We mark where to insert, overstitch, gather, pleat, double, put buttons, zips, edges, and so on… if a particular garment needs special techniques to be made in a successful way, we draw attention to that.
Everything is numbered so you can see which piece goes where – all you have to do is sew side A on one piece to side A on the adjoining piece, then join B to B and so on. 
 
ARE SEAM ALLOWANCES AND HEMS INCLUDED?
In order for you to immediately visualise the finished garment, as well as its precise measurements, each Marfy sewing pattern is made without leaving extra space for seam and hem allowances. So when you cut the fabric don’t forget to allow that extra space. We recommend 1–2 centimetres for seams, and 4 centimetres for hems. 
 
ARE STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS INCLUDED?
Because our sewing patterns are intuitive and easy to follow, we don’t provide step-by-step instructions for how to make each garment. You can adapt each design as you like, but don’t let this deter newcomers to sewing and consider our patterns only for expert sewers. Consider Marfy patterns an opportunity to let your creativity pour and make the garment with the details you prefer. 
If you’re uncertain the first time you try one of our patterns, all you will need is your favourite dressmaking book beside you that will quickly give you a selection of techniques to choose from. Once you get the hang of it, you won’t even need your reference book to guide you and will be able to make beautiful, stylish garments in no time.
 
ARE INTERNAL DETAILS AND LINING INCLUDED IN THE PATTERN?
All Marfy clothing patterns include internal details that form part of the design, such as under-collars, lapels, edging and interior belts, etcetera. If you decide to line your garment you can use the same pattern to create the perfect fit.
