Sneak Peek at New Marcy Spring Patterns
Permission granted from Vogue to publish these photos now. Watch for the new pattern release coming in the next couple of weeks, so there are no hotlinks to the Vogue site at this time.
Vogue 9174: shirt & pant
Blouse with diagonal seaming in 2 lengths, has an in-seam pocket & double collar. This version is made in our Micro Chek Stretch Cotton shirting, with a contrast cotton dot (sold out). Just for fun, we made the buttonholes in red, sewn on the diagonal.
The pant also has diagonal seaming and is designed for 4 way stretch ponte.

The longer version of the shirt is sewn in a washed silk taffeta. Silk taffeta is one of my favorite fabrics. To give it a nice overall crinkle and more kicked back effect, simply toss in the washer/dryer. Take it out of the dryer while just a bit damp and give it a steam press to smooth it out, then sew and press as usual. To launder, machine wash gentle and take it out of the washer while still quite wet, smooth out the seams, air dry and touch up press. The original wrinkles should remain, or you could crumple and then air dry and touch up.
Vogue 9171: pocket tunic
This simple little tunic with tucked in pockets. is a favorite with the ArtBarn team. They have been making versions in cotton and fleecy knits in versions for warm and cool weather. I love that Vogue shows it with narrow jeans as this is how Shelley wears it. Our friend Carol wears her knit fleecy versions to garden and cook. I wear mine with leggings, and want to make a cozy version for winter, maybe add a wider neckband for warmth and in my dreams will whip up a soft cotton version in to wear in Cuba. Super in either a knit or woven, the important thing is to choose a fabric with drape. The neck binding is sewn and finished before the center front seam is stitched, and the sleeve hem has soft gathers finished with a narrow binding.
This version is sewn in a Japanese double gauze. Note the lovely seam shaping in the back.
