Pale Peach Waikerie

Back in July last year I made a couple of hacked Waikerie Shirts from Fine Cloth Company linen. I made a gathered mocha Waikerie and this breast pocketed peach Waikerie. While the mocha Waikerie got a lot of wear, this peach shirt has been somewhat spurned. The mocha linen was a slightly heavier weight and… Continue reading Pale Peach Waikerie

Silk noil and raw linen

Here’s a fun little combo which includes 2 pieces that I’ve already shared here on the blog- my most recent and what’s probably my earliest make in A+R Fabric! My top is the Waikerie Shirt in moss silk noil and the pants are Glebe Pants in raw herringbone linen. The contrast between these 2 garments… Continue reading Silk noil and raw linen

Hacked Melba Dress

This project is blatant plagiarism I copied the project right down to the fabric choice and I don’t feel bad at all! During our August M&B Patreon Zoom Sewing Circle, Leila whipped up this exact hack of our new Melba Dress, with gathers and in a seersucker fabric (hers was navy and white). But, since… Continue reading Hacked Melba Dress

New Glebe Pants

After my two most-worn M&B Glebe Pants (both natural linen) died in quick succession my wardrobe has been screaming out for a new pair so at the August M&B Patreon Zoom Sewing Circle last weekend I finally finished up this pair in A+R Fabrics Herringbone linen. The deaths were particularly sad because the pair I’d… Continue reading New Glebe Pants

Golden fish Melba

The Melba Dress was in production and I’d already made my pink linen Melba in a 200gsm linen. It was a total success and I loved it so that I made a fatal error. I forgot that fabric weight is much less important than fabric drape and I cut into this golden jacquard that was… Continue reading Golden fish Melba

Melba Dress

The Melba Dress is the latest pattern from Leila and I through Muna and Broad. To celebrate, M&B email newsletter subscribers have 15% off during launch week. Sign up and the discount code will automatically be emailed to you. We wanted to make a very beginner friendly pattern which riffed on the Torrens Box Top… Continue reading Melba Dress

Colourblock Torrens

Pink and red should always be seen together, or whatever the opposite is to the saying about how you should never pair red and pink. I used a pink and red linen from The Fine Cloth Company for this colour-blocked Torrens Box Top and Glebe Pants combo. I haven’t hemmed the top or pants yet… Continue reading Colourblock Torrens

Striped Atrax

Am I filling my wardrobe with Atrax? Am I filling my wardrobe with this stripe? Yes. I have a Hyde T-Shirt in this exact fabric and since the Atrax Top uses so little fabric I had enough left to make a matching Atrax and I’ve still got more leftover (maybe a second Atrax where I… Continue reading Striped Atrax

Ribbed Atrax

The Atrax Top is so speedy, it made sense to whip up quite a few versions, since the longest part of the project is the hemming! Not going to lie- this fabric also jumped to the top of my stash when I realised that it was an almost-match for Fifey’s sweater (not me-made). Who doesn’t… Continue reading Ribbed Atrax

Atrax Dress

I mashed up the Atrax Dress with the View B cocoon view of the Hexham Dress (plus some length) to make a Leila-inspired minimalist dress from a French Terry from a local Facebook destash group. I hate hacking, I’d rather have pattern bonuses or pattern pieces to work from instead of relying on myself to… Continue reading Atrax Dress

Merino Atrax

The Atrax Top is the 28th pattern release from us at Muna and Broad! This super quick sew takes longer to hem than it does to cut it out and sew the 5 seams on the top! We imagined this minimalist top initiallys as elevated workwear which will work in a variety of fabrics, but… Continue reading Merino Atrax

Glebe and Gusset

I love a quick sew and I especially love a quick sew that I’ve memorised- the Glebe Pants were the first pattern that Leila and I released together and I’ve got the making down to a fine art where I can absolutely watch tv while I go through the pants-making motion. I cut these out… Continue reading Glebe and Gusset

Improv pieced scraps

I have real scrap guilt, and the 4 large lidded buckets under my A0 printer which are overflowing with scraps will confirm my story. I recently undertook some batch cutting (3 Torrens and 2 Glebe Pants)- my scraps looked quite good together and I didn’t have room in my bins to add these in so… Continue reading Improv pieced scraps

Double wine Torrens

This past weekend was a long weekend and I entered peak flow and undertook a cutting-out-and-sewing extravaganza! I cut out 2 pairs of Glebe Pants (not pictured) and 3 Torrens Box Tops. I’ve had these 2 wine coloured fabrics in my stash waiting to become a Torrens for a while now, and I figured that… Continue reading Double wine Torrens

Fat travel unders

I’m still thinking about travel wardrobes after my recent post ‘Fat Travel Planning’, which got an unusual amount of comments! Because there was so many great insights in the comment section, I thought that actually, some wardrobe sections deserved their own blog, so I’m cracking off with undies (not just because the Dulcie Boxer Briefs… Continue reading Fat travel unders

They’re also 15% off during launch week, no discount necessary! Kits containing everything you need for the Dulcie and also the custom M&B elastic on its own is available… Continue reading Dulcie Boxer Briefs

Core wardrobe pieces

After working through my most-worn and favourite makes in the last couple of blog posts, it occurred to me that beyond my favourite makes, there are a few pieces which go with everything in my favourites! You might want to check out ‘Sewing Wins, but why?‘, and ‘Sewing Wins, conclusions‘ before reading this post! This… Continue reading Core wardrobe pieces
