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
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.

I’ve been thinking more about wardrobe planning and how to find things which ‘work together’ in the hopes of finding the secret to not buying fabric which don’t go with anything, or shades that could be paired with my existing wardrobe pieces!

Yes, it looked a bit like this… Continue reading Warm Autumn colours for sewing
Recently I’ve made a lot more wardrobe orphans than usual (light sky-ish blue pants that don’t go with any of my tops being a prime example) and I’ve also not been sketching my makes as much. I’d like to start doing that more, both before I cut-and-sew but also before I purchase fabric. Hopefully this… Continue reading MyBodyModel for plus-size sketching
