Every month Leila and I release a pattern bonus to our Insider and Maker level Patreon supporters! I love this perk because it means that every month Leila’s making great pattern add-ons that can extend the versatility of my T’n’T patterns! The March Patreon Pattern Bonus from Muna and Broad is a funnel neck add-on… Continue reading Tarlee Funnel Neck
This was the exact outfit that I was imagining when I planned on making these Birchgrove Pants. This crumpled linen Waikerie Shirt is one of my most-worn makes (and my first shirt too), and it was the fabric which was my gateway back into pink!
The Birchgrove Pants are the latest pattern from Leila and me through Muna and Broad. We set out to make our most tapered pants yet, while still ensuring an excellent fit for fat bodies. These pants have even more room through the undercarriage than our previous pants, which helps to counteract the ‘hungry bum’ problem… Continue reading Wool Birchgrove Pants
I’m always thinking a lot about my wardrobe, and it struck me that although I had 2 chartreuse dresses that I loved a lot, I didn’t have any separates in that shade- so I present my Wasabi-coloured Tarlee T-Shirt!
I dug into my stash for this long-sleeve Tarlee T-Shirt! I made this during the pattern production process, and it’s a size larger than my bust measurement would recommend, so is a slightly more relaxed fit than my final version. I love a striped t-shirt, and have quite a few RTW striped tees in my… Continue reading Striped Tarlee T-Shirt
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!
Leila and I are on Patreon, and we’ve been super overwhelmed (and thrilled) that 100 lovely folks have signed up to support us on a monthly basis! This sleeve that I’ve made was the September pattern bonus for the Insider and Maker level supporters of the Muna and Broad Patreon!
You’d think that after more than a year of trying to photograph my makes, I’d be a bit better at posing or doing a good face- fear not! I’m here to prove that I’m just as un-photogenic as ever before! It probably doesn’t help that I’m always trying to have a conversation with my photographer-… Continue reading The new Torrens Box Top
This Willandra Pants and Waikerie Shirt combos is one of my favourite (and most worn) outfit combinations. Muna and Broad is celebrating a Willandra Pants this week as it seemed like a perfect time to revisit this pattern, which we unfortunately released right in the middle of lockdown- just at the time where nobody was… Continue reading Waikerie and Willandra plums
The Huon Shirt and Dress is the latest pattern release from Leila and I through Muna and Broad. I’ve wanted a gathered shirt like this for the longest time but could never find the right pattern, and if I found something close then it was inevitably never in my size!
The Nullarbor Cami and Dress is a pattern that I pestered Leila for for the longest time, because I knew it was a basic which was missing from the fat sewing pattern back catalogue. I knew because folks often emailed me to ask for recommendations and there weren’t many. There certainly weren’t many that were… Continue reading Mustard Nullarbor Cami
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
I bought this liberty print cotton on a bit of a whim shopping in person at The Fabric Store here in Christchurch. It was pretty unusual for a liberty print, and a bit more large-scale/abstract than usual. I bought this fabric intending to turn it in to a Waikerie Shirt (from Muna and Broad). This… Continue reading Liberty print Waikerie Shirt
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.
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
This is my most recent make- a Waikerie Dress (in chartreuse linen from The Fabric Store) from the Waikerie Dress expansion pack which gives you the pieces to turn the Muna and Broad Waikerie Shirt into a shirt dress!
The latest pattern from Muna and Broad is the Waikerie Shirt pattern, and this here is the collarless variation (View C) with short sleeves. I’ve avoided buttonholes for pretty much the whole time I’ve been sewing (all my pants have elastic), even though I love shirts, and finding shirts that fit both my bust and… Continue reading Silk Noil Waikerie Shirt
I gave the automatic button hole on my very basic Brother sewing machine just one more go, and finally managed to end up with something consistent enough to risk trying on actual clothes! I finally put buttons on 3 shirts that were otherwise fully made, that were part of my testing for a forthcoming Muna… Continue reading Waikerie Shirt Test
I cut out this Cashmerette Pembroke and sewed it up over the course of a couple of hours last night, after many months of thinking how nice it would be to have a merino turtleneck in exactly this shade (a perfect match for my marsala linen Zadie Jumpsuit)
Today we’ve released our Nullarbor Cami and Dress Pattern for pre-sale! Leila and I have got lots of patterns in the works right now, and this cami top and dress is one of them. There’s 3 views in this pattern: a cami cut on the straight grain, a bias cut cami and a bias cut… Continue reading Nullarbor Cami
