I’ve been on a bit of a Waikerie Shirt making kick recently (actually, I’ve been pretty prolific in general since I made my 2 Medlow Robes (silk and waffle), my new 3-piece outfit (see here and here), a pink Waikerie Shirt and this voluminous mocha Waikerie Shirt (I used the View B, with no collar… Continue reading Voluminous Mocha Waikerie
Did you know that I keep track of the online shops that sell fabric in NZ? I’m often looking for specific kinds of fabric, so often stumble upon new shops and add them to my list! In the case of The Fine Cloth Company, I found their website before it was live and signed up… Continue reading Pale Peach Waikerie Hack
I’ve had The Pinkest satin-backed rayon crepe in my stash for a while now, and my intention was always to make myself some excellent going-out pants (Muna and Broad Glebe Pants, of course)! I used a concert I had tickets to as an excuse to make myself an entirely new outfit (of things I’d been… Continue reading The pinkest Glebe Pants
I’m in the middle of a 3-day makefest to put together a whole new outfit (comprised of things I’ve been intending to make for months) for a concert that I’m attending tomorrow night! My outer-layer for this outfit is this Muna and Broad Belmore Jacket in pink boiled wool from FabFabrics in Botany (I got… Continue reading Boiled Wool Belmore Jacket
This Medlow Robe from Muna and Broad is made from cutting into my favourite waffle blanket to make myself a cosy & delightfully textured robe! Since making, I’ve been intending to wash the robe, to get it back to peak squishy/waffleness. I bought this blanket back in 2020 with the intention of sewing with it,… Continue reading Waffle Medlow Robe
The Medlow Robe is the latest pattern from Leila and I at Muna and Broad! I knew I was going to be making this up in silk, which I assumed would be tricky to cut out, tricky to sew, and tricky to photograph…. No pressure! Not sure if you can tell from the pictures below,… Continue reading Silk Medlow Robe
I’m so excited about these pants, my soft pink, wide wale corduroy Glebe Pants! These are going to be my go-to pants now that it’s cooled down and my linen Glebe are feeling a little…. insubstantial in the face of chilly winter breezes. Of course, it was unusually warm today when I took these photos… Continue reading Corduroy Glebe Pants

I’ve made a lot of different versions of the Muna and Broad Banksia Bralette and I think I’ve finally been able to settle on my favourite configuration! The Banksia Bralette [pronounced like Banksy-a] comes in two different cup sizes, and options for narrow shoulders too. The Banksia has a unique inner sling system which works… Continue reading My perfected bralette
Is there a better time to be talking about perfecting your me-made undergarments than me-made-may? I think not! This turned into a pretty long post! I’ve been making my own undies, something I never thought I would do, since we tested the Waratah Undies & Period Undies for Muna and Broad in November 2019! In… Continue reading Perfecting my undies

This was the exact outfit that I was imagining when I planned on making these Birchgrove Pants. This crumpled linen Waikerie Shirt is one of my most-worn makes (and my first shirt too), and it was the fabric which was my gateway back into pink!
The Birchgrove Pants are the latest pattern from Leila and me through Muna and Broad. We set out to make our most tapered pants yet, while still ensuring an excellent fit for fat bodies. These pants have even more room through the undercarriage than our previous pants, which helps to counteract the ‘hungry bum’ problem… Continue reading Wool Birchgrove Pants
Although I know I’ll never have a capsule wardrobe, I like to break my wardrobe down into mini-collections. I like to think that if/when we get back to international travel, I’ll have my wardrobe down pat and will easily be able to put together a comfortable travel wardrobe which all pair with each other. To… Continue reading Belmore M&B Capsule
I finally cut into this precious fabric from my stash, once I’d decided that the new Muna and Broad Belmore Jacket was the pattern for me! Now, this fabric is the Merchant & Mills jacquard fabric that you might have spotted online. It’s precious because it was so frightfully expensive. I didn’t love it when… Continue reading Quilted jacquard Belmore

As always, Leila has added some great features, which makes for a great sew with great final results- check out my sweet… Continue reading 8oz Chambray Belmore Jacket
I’m always thinking a lot about my wardrobe, and it struck me that although I had 2 chartreuse dresses that I loved a lot, I didn’t have any separates in that shade- so I present my Wasabi-coloured Tarlee T-Shirt!
