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
Today I’m musing on planning a colour palette, and the info here is taken from a larger post that I’ve shared on the Muna and Broad Patreon, where I’ve been posting about colour theory. Today I wanted to try and codify why some of the colours are larger than others, what that means, and how… Continue reading Colour Palette Planning

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 weekly plus-size sewing pattern roundup this week coincided with the launch of our latest pattern from Leila and me through Muna and Broad, the Birchgrove Pants! This inspired me to take a ‘fancy’ angle for the pattern roundup today! The Birchgrove Pants are available from 41.5-71.5″ (105-182cm) Hip, there’s technically no upper size limit… Continue reading Sunday Plus-Size Pattern Roundup #43
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’ve been sharing a lot on the Muna and Broad Patreon about colour theory and colours in wardrobes, as I try to get myself to a point where I have a high hit rate with my makes. Cutting down on makes that don’t feel like a success, will save me lots of time, money and… Continue reading Trying to pin down a colour scheme!
Hello Hello! Some exciting new patterns are included in the weekly roundup! The Jackie Trousers from By Hand London are available up to a 69″ hip
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
Welcome to #41 in my weekly plus-size pattern roundup! This week, I imagined a work-wear, or gardening-look vibe when putting together the roundup. That’s not to say that I necessarily think that these particular bibs or overalls would be especially practical for outdoor uses, but a bit like cottage-core they have the vibe of outdoor… Continue reading Sunday Plus-Size Pattern Roundup #41
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
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!
This week, there’s a slight scrap-busting theme to the weekly roundup, and I’ve also included some additional links to zero-waste sewing patterns (including some that specifically include plus-size bodies). Number 1, Sitka Sweatshirt The Sitka Sweatshirt from Hey June Handmade is available up to a 61″ hip
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
