My underwear draw is looking very healthy and stocked with Muna and Broad Kapunda Undies. These high-waisted undies sit perfectly on me, and don’t move around during the day- they’re basically the underwear that I’ve wanted for years but could never buy.Continue reading “Kapunda Undies, Kapundies”
This week, I was inspired by an email newsletter from Helen’s Closet about their Avery Leggings being on sale, so I decided to take an undergarment/athleisure/comfie lounging theme for the Sunday Plus-Size Pattern Roundup this week.

The Banksia Bralette from Muna and Broad is designed for larger bodies and comes in 2 cup sizes and with a narrow shoulder option.

Number 4, Lulu Cardigan
The Lulu Cardigan from Pattern Scout is available up to a 58″ hip
I like the cropped length of this cardigan, and how styled here, it looks like a comfie, but stylish, bomber jacket.

This isn’t an especially seasonal release for us down here in the Southern Hemisphere, but we did have a little cold snap here in Christchurch around Christmas, so it wasn’t too sweltering for me to take pictures of my wool Shoalhaven Shacket, the latest release from Muna and Broad!Continue reading “Shoalhaven Shacket”
I took some time this afternoon to sew up the cross-body apron that was the Muna and Broad November Patreon Pattern Bonus. The cross-body apron comes in large adult, small adult and child sizes, and Leila and I have been calling it the Apreon!
I love the pocket on here- it’s the perfect size for my phone (which I suppose is exactly the point)! I think because the colour of this apron happened to be such a good colour match for what I was wearing, it got me thinking that perhaps an Apron an everyday clothes is actually quite a good idea!
Fabric: I thought this was the pickle coloured linen from The Fabric Store, but now I think it might actually be the acorn coloured linen. Either way, I like it a lot.
Size: I made the ‘large adult’ size, but made the sit that sits over my chest a little bit less wide than the pattern called for. I could call that a narrow shoulder adjustment, but actually I did it because the linen wasn’t quite wide enough to fit the entire pattern piece.
