Project Chronicles- Monthly Marfy Challenge: Marfy 6180
This was a hard challenge, just to be honest. Have you participated in a challenge that requires a new garment and review, using a Marfy pattern? I did a video review of the last garment, Marfy 6180. I made this one for the Sew-Along which was done in September through October, last year. Planning, writing instructions, filming videos and of course sewing was not easy for me. Thus, I was hopeful that more people would participate. However, I discovered that several of you found that #sewtofitmarfychallenge Marfy Patterns were really difficult. I am grateful for those who did participate.
If you question whether I will continue or move forward with more #sewtofitmarfychallenge sewing videos or post, the answer is maybe. Most likely, I will try to only do a one month sewing challenge for you to participate in, instead of making it a two person challenge with multiple videos and instruction downloads. Of course the challenge will be run from my YouTube channel. So, stay posted.
For now, I want to show you my last outfit, which I made for the Sew-Along.
full review is documented in my Youtube review of this pattern with moving pictures of me wearing the dress, in case you want to see it in motion.

We had Roz with http://bit.ly/STF-SMFabric (Sew Much Fabric) put together a wonderful video with a myriad of fabric choices. As I filmed this video, I realized just how creative we could be with any sheath dress we choose to make. All references are clickable and will lead you to the actual videos. Not all the videos for the sew-along are mentioned here...There are just too many for one blog post.
The fitting process was more involved for those who had never sewn with a Marfy parttern. We were even graced with the time of one of my customers here in Houston. She donated here time to the video process.
Please take the time and do me a favor by watching my videos. Show some love...pretty please. Thanks to all those who followed along last year with the #sewtofitmarfychallenge. There were several videos livestreamed during the year as the #sewtofitmarfychallenge progressed. Click the picture to see the entire Video Playlist on @SewToFitbyAdlynn YouTube Channel.
Thanks again to everyone who participated and to Becki for being my sidekick throughout the first four challenges.
Until next time,
