It’s Autumn, which means I need huge pockets to gather all the pears and peaches I find on my walk (sometimes even Glebe Pockets simply won’t do). So, this Belmore Jacket hack (which I’ve been imagining for ages) finally came to fruition! These huge pockets basically span the width of the front body piece, I… Continue reading Huge pocket Belmore
Clearly, I needed a wisteria coloured Cobden Chore Jacket! This is the latest pattern from Leila and I through Muna and Broad, and it’s 15% off this week, no discount code needed! Size Details: I made a Size E, which matches my bust measurement. I’ve got a 48″ full bust and am 57″ at my… Continue reading Cobden Chore Jacket
I’m in the middle of a 3-day makefest to put together a whole new outfit (comprised of things I’ve been intending to make for months) for a concert that I’m attending tomorrow night! My outer-layer for this outfit is this Muna and Broad Belmore Jacket in pink boiled wool from FabFabrics in Botany (I got… Continue reading Boiled Wool Belmore Jacket
Muna and Broad is celebrating outerwear with 10% off any of our outer layers with the code COZYCOZY until the 10th of April 2021 (in case you’re here from the future)! I thought that I would wrap up some of my M&B makes and also talk about some of my possible future outer layer plans,… Continue reading Cozy Cozy M&B Outerwear
Although I know I’ll never have a capsule wardrobe, I like to break my wardrobe down into mini-collections. I like to think that if/when we get back to international travel, I’ll have my wardrobe down pat and will easily be able to put together a comfortable travel wardrobe which all pair with each other. To… Continue reading Belmore M&B Capsule
I finally cut into this precious fabric from my stash, once I’d decided that the new Muna and Broad Belmore Jacket was the pattern for me! Now, this fabric is the Merchant & Mills jacquard fabric that you might have spotted online. It’s precious because it was so frightfully expensive. I didn’t love it when… Continue reading Quilted jacquard Belmore
The Belmore Jacket is the latest pattern from Muna and Broad. I’m wearing a full Muna and Broad outfit here for my pictures! Linen Belmore Jacket, bamboo Tarlee T-Shirt, and pink linen Glebe Pants. Not visible are a Banksia Bralette, and Kapunda Undies!
The Belmore Jacket is the latest pattern from Leila and I through Muna and Broad. We’ve been thinking about a lighter-weight layering piece which is perfect for pairing with our existing pattern collection. As always, Leila has added some great features, which makes for a great sew with great final results- check out my sweet… Continue reading 8oz Chambray Belmore Jacket
This isn’t an especially seasonal release for us down here in the Southern Hemisphere, but we did have a little cold snap here in Christchurch around Christmas, so it wasn’t too sweltering for me to take pictures of my wool Shoalhaven Shacket, the latest release from Muna and Broad! I’m wearing my Shoalhaven with my… Continue reading Shoalhaven Shacket
I’m so thrilled about the Grainger Coat, the latest pattern release from Leila and me through Muna and Broad! I’ve wanted to make myself a quilted coat for the longest time, but the popular patterns on the market weren’t available in my size.
The Mallee Jacket is the latest release from Leila and I through Muna and Broad. It’s designed specifically for boiled wool, but I used a viscose/wool blend boucle which doesn’t fray because it was tough to find boiled wool here in NZ back when I tested this pattern during our warmer months.
The Flynn Jacket from In The Folds has a size range of 29 7⁄8″-51 5⁄8″ Bust, 33″-54 3⁄4″ Hip I made a size “I”, which was going by my bust size. I was part of the original testing group for this jacket and I didn’t make any changes to the pattern apart from making the… Continue reading Flynn Jacket, In The Folds
I wear this jacket all the time. Since it’s pure silk, it works for all weather- it’s cool when I’m warm and it’s warm when I’m cold. Another benefit of silk is that it can be casual or more fancy. I truly wear this at least once a week, if not more. The pattern is… Continue reading Papercut Kochi
This Sapporo Coat from Papercut Patterns is one of my biggest sewing regrets, that I’m resolved to turn into a sewing win! I’m quite a way outside of the Papercut Patterns maximum hip size of 46.5″ (close to 10″ inches away), and because I loved the coat so much I got in touch with the… Continue reading Sapporo Coat
I made this linen duster-ish jacket using Elbe Textile‘s free tutorial for making a zero-waste jacket. I love the idea of zero-waste sewing since it saves me from hoarding linen scraps for years and I suppose it’s also good for the environment.
This Kochi from Papercut Patterns is sewn up in delicious mustard linen from The Fabric Store. I drastically increased the size of this everywhere because I wanted something wearable, cozy and that doubled as a rug for grass protection.
