Today I’m musing on planning a colour palette, and the info here is taken from a larger post that I’ve shared on the Muna and Broad Patreon, where I’ve been posting about colour theory. Today I wanted to try and codify why some of the colours are larger than others, what that means, and how I can use that to plan my future makes.Continue reading “Colour Palette Planning”
I’ve been sharing a lot on the Muna and Broad Patreon about colour theory and colours in wardrobes, as I try to get myself to a point where I have a high hit rate with my makes. Cutting down on makes that don’t feel like a success, will save me lots of time, money and heartache. I’d love to work out what exactly it is that I love my most-worn garments, and why I don’t reach for others so I can feel confident that something will work well BEFORE I make it!

My 7-piece capsule wardrobe
I’ve been thinking more about wardrobe planning and how to find things which ‘work together’ in the hopes of finding the secret to not buying fabric which don’t go with anything, or shades that could be paired with my existing wardrobe pieces!
The Curvy Sewing Collective has lots of posts about capsule wardrobes, but the post I started with was this one hereContinue reading “Sculthorpe Capsule Wardrobe”
The 3×3 wardrobe capsule is something that I first read about on the Curvy Sewing Collective here. The idea is that by mapping out tops, bottoms and layers in a grid (like below), you can find combinations which work together.
I’ve been experimenting with capsule wardrobes as a way to avoid wardrobe orphans (garments that don’t work well with others), but also as a way to learn how to combine colour in such a way as to plan cohesive capsules instead of discover them accidentally after the fact.Continue reading “3×3 collection from Muna and Broad”
