Pink Pants Club Glebe Pants


I’ve had this linen sitting in my stash with the intention of making some summery Glebe Pants since last year (I know it’s only February, but still)! I finally made View B of the Glebe Pants and I couldn’t be happier with the results!

I’m wearing my summery pink pants with one of my long-sleeve Tarlee T-Shirts that I made during the pattern production process. It’s a size larger than I ended up making, and so is a slightly more relaxed fit than my final version.

Fabric Consumption: The Glebe Pants are a quick 1/2 day project for me, now that I have the steps memorized. In this early version of the pattern, Leila included notches which indicate the seam-allownace, which means that you generally don’t need to check the instructions as the fabric tells you what to do! I used 2metres of 150cm wide linen for these pants!

Size details: I’m a 43″ waist and 54″ true hip but I’m around 57″ at my largest point around my belly. I made a straight Size F.

Muna and Broad winter warmers


I’ve been dreaming of a cosy winter ensemble, inspired by this top I spotted on Instagram combined with this dusky pink wool suiting blend which I scored 3m of for $15 last year! I also loved Leila’s pink pleated-front Glebe Pants (which she didn’t reach for and can now be seen on the ridiculous cool Lydia from @styleisstyle).

Having tested out the pleated front, flat waistband (View B) Glebe Pants in some black pinstripe wool suiting, I knew that I wanted at least a couple more pairs for the colder months. I love the fit on these, and I’ve got the construction down to a fine art. Because Leila included notches in the pattern to indicate the seam allowances, I can skip checking back on the instructions which certainly helps things go much quicker. I also skipped lining these pants, and I’m hoping I won’t need to go back to line the pants because of itchiness.
