The Willandra Pants are the newest pattern that Leila and I have released as Muna and Broad! These pants are our ‘fancy work pants’ and call for fabric with lots of drape.
I’ve decided to take advantage of this long-weekend to find the perfect pattern to use for my treasured marsala merino, which I’d like to make the winter-layering-turtleneck-of-my-dreams from! Since we’re in lockdown here in NZ and it’s not possible to print any new patterns out, this throwdown has been limited to patterns that I already… Continue reading The perfect merino turtleneck pattern throwdown
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
The Cornell Shirt from Elbe Textiles is a non-gendered pattern available from 30.5-54.5″ (78-138cm) hip and 32-56″ (82-142cm) chest, the finished measurements on the chest and hip of this shirt go up to 70″ or 178cm
I’ve had the Michelle Blouse from Schnittchen printed out for ages, but now that NZ is in lockdown and it’s not possible to print anything, I was finally spurred me on to testing it out (also because I hate buttonholes but love shirts)! The Schnittchen plus-size patterns up to EU 56 or 53.54″ (136cm) bust… Continue reading Michelle Blouse from Schnittchen
The LB Pullover from Paper Theory Patterns is available in sizes 6-28, with the size 28 being a 56″ bust and 57.5″ hip. Currently Tara has released her Kabuki Tee, Miller Trousers, Zadie Jumpsuit and this LB Pullover in her extended size range (and her website tells me that the Olya Shirt is coming early… Continue reading LB Pullover from Paper Theory
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!
Here’s a pair of medium-weight linen/viscose Sculthorpe Pants which Leila and I released recently through Muna and Broad
These are the new Sculthorpe Pants that Leila and I have released through Muna and Broad! We’ve been testing out a few different narrow leg pants options because we know that not everyone loves wide-leg pants!
I made this Torrens Box Top in cosy ‘Savvy Gingham’ from Miss Maude. The fibre content is 88% Cotton, 7% Linen, 5% Wool and it’s a delight. I thought I could squeeze a long-sleeve version out of this fabric, but was foiled due the narrow width of this fabric.
I’ve had the extended sizes of the Kabuki Tee from Paper Theory printed out for ages now, and it’s been in the back of my mind that I ought to find some lovely linen for this for ages now. A couple of weeks ago I tried to find some examples of plus-size bodies in the… Continue reading Plus-size Kabuki Tee from Paper Theory
The Ashton top from Helen’s Closet has been out for a while now and I finally caved and purchased the pattern as a possible replacement for the Cashmerette Springfield Top, which fits great, but is a bit too fitted for my tastes (I want something boxier).
We recently launched some bonus long-sleeve pieces to accompany the Torrens Box Top pattern from Muna and Broad. Since our summer hasn’t been particularly warm, I went a little sewing-crazy adding new sleeves of various kinds to my wardrobe! Rather than post about all of them, I thought that a round-up post might be in… Continue reading Torrens Box Top adventures
We’ve been working to extend the sizing and also add some long-sleeve options for the Torrens Box Top pattern that we’ve released under Muna and Broad! This is my second test of the narrow-sleeve extension, and I’m so pleased that I’ve now got the woven drop-shouldered long-sleeve top pattern that I’ve been looking for!
Sew Family Jammies, hosted by Sew Altered Style is a Christmas blog tour! Keep up with the blog tour and the fun jammies being sewn on Instagram here.
Grainline Studios has recently released their free Hemlock Tee pattern in their new extended size range! I’ve loved the style of the top, and now it’s available in my size! You can get the pattern for free by subscribing to the Grainline email newsletter (which you can do here).
I’ve been saving this gorgeous rayon from Drapers Fabric for the perfect project. I’m happy to say that I’m really pleased with the usage here, and I think I’ll have enough leftover for a summer shell top (maybe an Ashton from Helen’s Closet?)
Edit: The Glebe Pants are now available to purchase in our extended size range over at Muna and Broad.com!
