i believe the seams are just left off that sketch, as the way it hangs, it can't NOT have at least one seam.

Actually, Marfy patterns are geared toward the expert\advanced.  What makes them particularly difficult is the lack of instructions (none at all!!).  This is also a European pattern, generally seam allowances are not included, but the dress itself will have seams (although the sketch may not show them) and is a bit more expensive to get ahold of one.

I'm sure that you can find a very similar pattern if you look through the pattern books (I am sure that Simplicity, New Look, Butterick, and McCall all have versions of this dress), you find something that you like.

the website said that there was no seem -allowance- on the pattern so that if you cut out the pattern and sewed it together, you would have to cut the pieces larger than the pattern if you wanted the dress to come out the right size
I know there are seems duh  Tongue
I have scoured through all of the patterns online and cant find a similar one.

Anybody have a pattern number i can look for or has made something similar??

How about Kwik Sew 3294.  It has the same lines as the Marfy, but the skirt is a bit more flared.

Burda may have a spaghetti strap dress as well, I haven't check recently, but they usually sew up well too.

If you have your heart set on the Marfy - then you should go for it.  Since the dress is pretty much a simple sheath dress, it should be easy to figure out what you need to do (it probably has under 8 pieces).  If you do decide to do it, keep in mind they won't tell you when to use interfacing, how to insert the zipper etc., but if you have experience putting a dress together, then you should do fine.  It takes a bit long to put a garment together without instructions (that's part of the Marfy 'challenge'!!!), but as long as you're not pressed for time, it won't matter too much!

thanks for the link thats almost exactly what I had in mind. But maybe i could alter the bottom to make it less puffy?
I have made dresses with a pattern (and with no instruction) recently i just think i would get into trouble if i had to make my own seem allowance.

Actually, they make a tool  that is simply two pencils held together 1/2 or 5/8" apart - it's a lifesaver on tracing patterns without a seam allowance!

If you're thinking of doing a Marfy or Burda World of Fashion magazine pattern, I'd go ahead in invest in one of these (or create your own version).

hmm this one: http://store.sewingtoday.com/cgi-bin/butterick/shop.cgi?s.item.B4183=x&TI=10002&page=6
is kinda similar, but the neckline is more square and the skirt more flared. B3020 is kinda close.
