Bishop Melba Top

A little while ago I shared this Melba Dress sewing fail on Instagram– a sad outcome for this deep stash linen which I cut into far too haphazardly. With the bold sleeves and the red colour, it felt like something I should be wearing as a church chorister. View this post on Instagram A post… Continue reading Bishop Melba Top

Red and pink combo

Pinterest can attest to my love of pink and red combos, but my wardrobe couldn’t, until now. Inspired by this post from The Fine Cloth Company which showed their candy apple red and bubblegum pink linens combined into a tiered dress, I went ahead and purchased The Exact Same Fabrics for my own colourblock adventure… Continue reading Red and pink combo

Pale Peach Waikerie

Back in July last year I made a couple of hacked Waikerie Shirts from Fine Cloth Company linen. I made a gathered mocha Waikerie and this breast pocketed peach Waikerie. While the mocha Waikerie got a lot of wear, this peach shirt has been somewhat spurned. The mocha linen was a slightly heavier weight and… Continue reading Pale Peach Waikerie

Silk noil and raw linen

Here’s a fun little combo which includes 2 pieces that I’ve already shared here on the blog- my most recent and what’s probably my earliest make in A+R Fabric! My top is the Waikerie Shirt in moss silk noil and the pants are Glebe Pants in raw herringbone linen. The contrast between these 2 garments… Continue reading Silk noil and raw linen

New Glebe Pants

After my two most-worn M&B Glebe Pants (both natural linen) died in quick succession my wardrobe has been screaming out for a new pair so at the August M&B Patreon Zoom Sewing Circle last weekend I finally finished up this pair in A+R Fabrics Herringbone linen. The deaths were particularly sad because the pair I’d… Continue reading New Glebe Pants

Colourblock Torrens

Pink and red should always be seen together, or whatever the opposite is to the saying about how you should never pair red and pink. I used a pink and red linen from The Fine Cloth Company for this colour-blocked Torrens Box Top and Glebe Pants combo. I haven’t hemmed the top or pants yet… Continue reading Colourblock Torrens

Glebe and Gusset

I love a quick sew and I especially love a quick sew that I’ve memorised- the Glebe Pants were the first pattern that Leila and I released together and I’ve got the making down to a fine art where I can absolutely watch tv while I go through the pants-making motion. I cut these out… Continue reading Glebe and Gusset

New pink Glebe

Every month there’s a Muna and Broad Patreon Zoom Sewing Circle, which lasts for 2 hours. This weekend, the Zoom kicked off at 8am NZ-time, and I really didn’t feel like cutting out a new project at that time of the morning (it’s my least favourite thing to do)! So, I used the 2 hours… Continue reading New pink Glebe

Glebe Pants roundup!

The Glebe Pants got a size update this week, so I thought it would be appropriate to sift back through all my past Glebe Pants to see both how many I’ve made, but also what were the big successes (and failures)! The first Glebe! The Glebe Pants (and eventually Muna and Broad) came to be… Continue reading Glebe Pants roundup!

Tarawi in the wild!

The new Tarawi Shirt has happily joined my wardrobe! This is the 23rd pattern that Leila and I have released over the last two years and at the time of posting, there’s about 48-hours left to get 15% off (no discount code needed). Here’s a little bit of wardrobe and colour-scheme exploration about fitting these… Continue reading Tarawi in the wild!

The pinkest Glebe Pants

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

Corduroy Glebe Pants

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

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… Continue reading Muna and Broad winter warmers

Flat-front wool Glebe Pants

I didn’t bother to brush my hair or tidy my lounge for these pictures- I figured that it was more important to take the photos than to wait for the perfect pictures! This is my first time making the pleated-front Glebe Pants that Leila and I released over at Muna and Broad!
