About Marty

I Am's Marty has up to 150 different possibilities. Yes, I can be sewn in 150 versions thanks to my different styles, collars, sleeves, lengths, button plackets etc.

  • It can be either a tiered top, tunic or dress, and even a curved hem top or dress.
  • It has 5 sleeve options: sleeveless, short sleeve, shirt sleeve and 3/4 sleeve or long sleeve with elasticated cuff.
  • There are 3 different collars: Mandarin collar, shirt collar, and double shirt collar.
  • There are 2 buttoning options: polo style button placket or a classic button placket (partial or full length).


With my endless possibilities, you can wear a different version for all occasions, all seasons, all eventualities.

In an effort to reduce paper usage some pattern pieces overlap with each other, so you will need to trace the pattern on paper or use Cloth Edit’s Vilene Light.  It is fantastic for tracing patterns, and you can even sew it, which makes it great for fitting.  (Note - the overlapping is neither extensive nor hard to discern).
The packaging for I AM Patterns is beautiful but tricky to get into without ripping the lovely gold card that backs the pattern.  Our suggestion is to jiggle the pattern down as far as it goes, and neatly cut off the top of the pattern. You will need to snip off approximately 1.75cm, but take care to steer clear of the pattern itself.

 

The Fabric

For your Marty, select lightweight to medium weight woven fabrics such as poplin, viscose, silk, Tencel, chambray, crêpe, denim, brushed cotton, cupro, linen…

  • 1/2″ (12 mm) wide buttons: 4 to 15 depending the chosen version

  • Double fold bias tape: 55″ (140cm) maximum

  • 1″ (2,5 cm) wide elastic: 27″ (70cm) maximum

 

Sizing

The Marty covers the size range of 36-46. 

 

Level of Difficulty

I AM Patterns indicates that Marty is a 'simple' pattern.  The instructions are clear, with step by step illustrations.

 

I AM Patterns is a very popular French independent sewing pattern company, owned by two sisters: Marie-Emilienne (founder and designer) and Blandine (marketing manager).  I AM Patterns’ designs are modern and push the boundaries, but they also include timeless pieces.  I hope you enjoy exploring their range.
