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

Snow gum blue Waikerie

When Maaidesign got in touch to ask if I wanted to try some of their new exclusive fabrics, some of which had Australian gum leaf prints, I was in. You might have noticed that I have a collection of Australian botanicals on my arms, so I was particularly taken with the long gum leaf print… Continue reading Snow gum blue Waikerie

Voluminous Mocha Waikerie

I’ve been on a bit of a Waikerie Shirt making kick recently (actually, I’ve been pretty prolific in general since I made my 2 Medlow Robes (silk and waffle), my new 3-piece outfit (see here and here), a pink Waikerie Shirt and this voluminous mocha Waikerie Shirt (I used the View B, with no collar… Continue reading Voluminous Mocha Waikerie

Pale Peach Waikerie Hack

Did you know that I keep track of the online shops that sell fabric in NZ? I’m often looking for specific kinds of fabric, so often stumble upon new shops and add them to my list! In the case of The Fine Cloth Company, I found their website before it was live and signed up… Continue reading Pale Peach Waikerie Hack

Waikerie and Willandra plums

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

Liberty print Waikerie Shirt

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

Silk Noil Waikerie Shirt

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

Waikerie Shirt Test

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
