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

The pinkest Glebe Pants

I’ve had The Pinkest satin-backed rayon crepe in my stash for a while now, and my intention was always to make myself some excellent going-out pants (Muna and Broad Glebe Pants, of course)! I used a concert I had tickets to as an excuse to make myself an entirely new outfit (of things I’d been… Continue reading The pinkest Glebe Pants

Boiled Wool Belmore 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

Silk noil and wool

After more than a year sitting in the ‘finishing pile’, I dug these wool Muna and Broad Glebe Pants out and finally hemmed them! This time last year, I didn’t have an overlocker (I finally bought one in August 2020)! So, before finishing the hems, I also whipped around the seams with my overlocker! I… Continue reading Silk noil and wool

Corduroy Glebe Pants

I’m so excited about these pants, my soft pink, wide wale corduroy Glebe Pants! These are going to be my go-to pants now that it’s cooled down and my linen Glebe are feeling a little…. insubstantial in the face of chilly winter breezes. Of course, it was unusually warm today when I took these photos… Continue reading Corduroy Glebe Pants

On colour-schemes

I’ve been thinking a lot about colour over the past year-and-a-bit. Maybe you’ve noticed? I’ve posted blogs on my colour-scheme planning, and M&B Patreons got lots of my musings about colour seasons and wardrobe colour-planning. I’ve even got a whole Pinterest board of ‘Warm Autumn’ inspiration! I was still ending up with outfits that I… Continue reading On colour-schemes

Fat Sewing Resources

In lieu of a plus-size pattern roundup this week, I’d like to talk a little bit about fat inclusion in sewing patterns instead. I’ve toyed with the idea of setting a higher minimum for patterns to be included in the roundup, but there are so few patterns available over a 70″ hip, or over a… Continue reading Fat Sewing Resources

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!
