Striped Atrax

Am I filling my wardrobe with Atrax? Am I filling my wardrobe with this stripe? Yes. I have a Hyde T-Shirt in this exact fabric and since the Atrax Top uses so little fabric I had enough left to make a matching Atrax and I’ve still got more leftover (maybe a second Atrax where I… Continue reading Striped Atrax

Ribbed Atrax

The Atrax Top is so speedy, it made sense to whip up quite a few versions, since the longest part of the project is the hemming! Not going to lie- this fabric also jumped to the top of my stash when I realised that it was an almost-match for Fifey’s sweater (not me-made). Who doesn’t… Continue reading Ribbed Atrax

Atrax Dress

I mashed up the Atrax Dress with the View B cocoon view of the Hexham Dress (plus some length) to make a Leila-inspired minimalist dress from a French Terry from a local Facebook destash group. I hate hacking, I’d rather have pattern bonuses or pattern pieces to work from instead of relying on myself to… Continue reading Atrax Dress

Merino Atrax

The Atrax Top is the 28th pattern release from us at Muna and Broad! This super quick sew takes longer to hem than it does to cut it out and sew the 5 seams on the top! We imagined this minimalist top initiallys as elevated workwear which will work in a variety of fabrics, but… Continue reading Merino Atrax

They’re also 15% off during launch week, no discount necessary! Kits containing everything you need for the Dulcie and also the custom M&B elastic on its own is available… Continue reading Dulcie Boxer Briefs

Snoot & Hexham

How fortunate for me that greyhounds not only don’t mind wearing clothes, but actually need to wear clothes because they have such low body fat! I’m imagining that you’ll likely see some matching outfits in our future (not just because I’ve got leftover jacket fabrics that are just enough for a greyhound coat)! Fifey is… Continue reading Snoot & Hexham

Spotted Hexham Dress

The cocoon view of the new Muna and Boad Hexham Dress! M&B email newsletter subscribers get 15% off during launch week, so it’s worth signing up to the email newsletter. What I’ve made here is View B with the cocoon hem, the long sleeves, and the T6 turtle cut into a mockneck (it’s half as… Continue reading Spotted Hexham Dress

Pinkest Hexham Dress

This is my peak-summer dress and the pinkest Hexham Dress yet! There are 2 views, 3 sleeve lengths and 2 neck options (3 if you could a mockneck as being separate from a turtleneck) included in the pattern. What I went with here is the crewneck option, the shortest sleeve and the View A, which… Continue reading Pinkest Hexham Dress

Ribbed Hexham

The Hexham Dress is the latest pattern from Muna and Broad (M&B email newsletter subscribers get 15% off during launch week)! The Hexham is a dress with options! For this one, I used the Turtleneck (T6), the longest sleeve, and View B (the cocoon option). Fabric & consumption The pattern calls for 2.3m of 150cm… Continue reading Ribbed Hexham

Ribbed swimsuit

Today in misadventures! I finally tried on a swimsuit that I had sewn up just before NZ went into lockdown, and discovered that I could barely get it on and the fabric was very stressed being forced to accommodate me! I’d been saving this lovely ribbed black swimsuit fabric from Nellie Joans for AGES for… Continue reading Ribbed swimsuit

My perfected bralette

I’ve made a lot of different versions of the Muna and Broad Banksia Bralette and I think I’ve finally been able to settle on my favourite configuration! The Banksia Bralette [pronounced like Banksy-a] comes in two different cup sizes, and options for narrow shoulders too. The Banksia has a unique inner sling system which works… Continue reading My perfected bralette

Perfecting my undies

Is there a better time to be talking about perfecting your me-made undergarments than me-made-may? I think not! This turned into a pretty long post! I’ve been making my own undies, something I never thought I would do, since we tested the Waratah Undies & Period Undies for Muna and Broad in November 2019! In… Continue reading Perfecting my undies

Tarlee swim shirt/rashvest

The Tarlee T-Shirt is the latest pattern release from Muna and Broad, and when I saw it I realised that with a mock-neck, it would make a great swim-shirt or rashvest for beach swimming this summer! Get 15% off the Tarlee with the code TURTLENECK until the 7th of January.

The Banksia Bralette and Tank

I’m a little late to the party to talk about the new Banksia Bralette pattern, released by Leila and I through Muna and Broad, mostly because I do have reservations about sharing pictures on the internet of myself in a bralette (funny where we draw the line isn’t it?)! While I was procrastinating on sharing… Continue reading The Banksia Bralette and Tank
