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
In the last blog, I tried to analyse some of my favourite and most-worn makes to see if I could pin down exactly what makes them winners! ‘Sewing Wins, but why?‘, you can read the post here. After all of my rambling, I didn’t actually get around to drawing any conclusions, so here are some… Continue reading Sewing Wins, conclusions
I’m always thinking away about how to make everything I make a great fit for my life and wardrobe, but mostly I’ve concentrated on building a colour-scheme for my wardrobe, rather than the success of individual pieces.

Today I wanted to try and codify why some of the colours are larger than others, what that means, and how… 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… Continue reading Trying to pin down a colour scheme!
I’ve been pestering my real-life sewing friend Naomi to help me work out what colours suit me for a while now (mostly because I’d like to stop wasting money on fabrics that I like in theory, but not in practice on myself) and last week it finally happened! Yes, it looked a bit like this… Continue reading Warm Autumn colours for sewing
