Surfing the internet on a quest for a sew-a-long for inspiration and a challenge, I found a blog that I somehow hadn't visited in for a few months.
I had to stop visiting AChallengingSew.typepad.com. It made me want to sew gorgeous fabrics into beautiful clothing. I had Christmas sewing and I was on a budget. The blog was just too inspiring.
A Challenging Sew is leading a series of three sew-a-longs using the three free Marfy sewing patterns, available from Marfy.
The first is a blouse, Marfy 1913, that begins on Monday, January 13. That is just a few is just a few days ahead!
The second is begins on February, a classic French style jacket, Marfy 1757. Finally in March, a skirt Marfy 0757.
For those not familiar with Marfy,it is an Italian pattern company that creates patterns for experienced or advanced sewists. My understanding is that there is one size and just a pattern when it arrives in your mailbox. No extras, no frills, no instructions.
