Glebe and Gusset

I love a quick sew and I especially love a quick sew that I’ve memorised- the Glebe Pants were the first pattern that Leila and I released together and I’ve got the making down to a fine art where I can absolutely watch tv while I go through the pants-making motion. I cut these out… Continue reading Glebe and Gusset

Double wine Torrens

This past weekend was a long weekend and I entered peak flow and undertook a cutting-out-and-sewing extravaganza! I cut out 2 pairs of Glebe Pants (not pictured) and 3 Torrens Box Tops. I’ve had these 2 wine coloured fabrics in my stash waiting to become a Torrens for a while now, and I figured that… Continue reading Double wine Torrens

The Dulcie Boxer Briefs are new from Leila and me and they’re basically my ideal boxer short, which happens to be the perfect chub rub short! They’re also 15% off during launch week, no discount necessary! Kits containing everything you need for the Dulcie and also the custom M&B elastic on its own is available… Continue reading Dulcie Boxer Briefs

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

Huge pocket Belmore

It’s Autumn, which means I need huge pockets to gather all the pears and peaches I find on my walk (sometimes even Glebe Pockets simply won’t do). So, this Belmore Jacket hack (which I’ve been imagining for ages) finally came to fruition! These huge pockets basically span the width of the front body piece, I… Continue reading Huge pocket Belmore

Wine Hyde twins

The Hyde T-Shirt extravaganza continues in my sewing room (which is my loungeroom). Sometimes when we release a pattern it takes a while for me to want to make it again because I’ve made so many already and I’m feeling a bit ‘over it’. Not so with the Hyde.. So much not so that I… Continue reading Wine Hyde twins

Striped merino Hyde

Yesterday I finished this merino Hyde T-Shirt and this morning it was just 5 degrees Celsius. Is my timing impeccable or what? This great striped merino is from Nick’s Fabrics in Auckland and comes in a variety of colourways. The selvedge edge was quite wavy and almost stretched out near the edges. It wasn’t a… Continue reading Striped merino Hyde

Drapey Hyde T-Shirt

The new Hyde T-Shirt from M&B comes with a View B which has a crossover back. It’s accessibility-minded but also just looks good. After Leila whipped hers up in black, I decided that this rich chocolatey bamboo would make a perfect version for me! I love how the back detail and the bamboo can skew… Continue reading Drapey Hyde T-Shirt

Striped Hyde T-Shirt

The latest pattern from Leila and I through Muna and Broad is now here. The Hyde T-Shirt has a dropped shoulder and a couple of views, and is 15% off during launch week, no code necessary. I wanted a boxy t-shirt and Leila delivered! I’ve been wearing my toiles a lot while heading out to… Continue reading Striped Hyde T-Shirt

Snoot & Hexham

How fortunate for me that greyhounds not only don’t mind wearing clothes, but actually need to wear clothes because they have such low body fat! I’m imagining that you’ll likely see some matching outfits in our future (not just because I’ve got leftover jacket fabrics that are just enough for a greyhound coat)! Fifey is… Continue reading Snoot & Hexham

Spotted Hexham Dress

The cocoon view of the new Muna and Boad Hexham Dress! M&B email newsletter subscribers get 15% off during launch week, so it’s worth signing up to the email newsletter. What I’ve made here is View B with the cocoon hem, the long sleeves, and the T6 turtle cut into a mockneck (it’s half as… Continue reading Spotted Hexham Dress

Pinkest Hexham Dress

This is my peak-summer dress and the pinkest Hexham Dress yet! There are 2 views, 3 sleeve lengths and 2 neck options (3 if you could a mockneck as being separate from a turtleneck) included in the pattern. What I went with here is the crewneck option, the shortest sleeve and the View A, which… Continue reading Pinkest Hexham Dress

Ribbed Hexham

The Hexham Dress is the latest pattern from Muna and Broad (M&B email newsletter subscribers get 15% off during launch week)! The Hexham is a dress with options! For this one, I used the Turtleneck (T6), the longest sleeve, and View B (the cocoon option). Fabric & consumption The pattern calls for 2.3m of 150cm… Continue reading Ribbed Hexham

Size Details: I made a Size E, which matches my bust measurement. I’ve got a 48″ full bust and am 57″ at my… Continue reading Cobden Chore Jacket

New pink Glebe

Every month there’s a Muna and Broad Patreon Zoom Sewing Circle, which lasts for 2 hours. This weekend, the Zoom kicked off at 8am NZ-time, and I really didn’t feel like cutting out a new project at that time of the morning (it’s my least favourite thing to do)! So, I used the 2 hours… Continue reading New pink Glebe

Glebe Pants roundup!

The Glebe Pants got a size update this week, so I thought it would be appropriate to sift back through all my past Glebe Pants to see both how many I’ve made, but also what were the big successes (and failures)! The first Glebe! The Glebe Pants (and eventually Muna and Broad) came to be… Continue reading Glebe Pants roundup!

Day time PJs?

These are my original Spinifex PJs, and I’ve really been enjoying them as night-time wear. Since releasing the pattern, I’ve also made a second sleepwear set with the bottoms from this pattern and a Tarlee T-Shirt turtleneck (because it’s cold in the house in NZ in winter)! If you want to read more about this… Continue reading Day time PJs?

Tarawi in the wild!

The new Tarawi Shirt has happily joined my wardrobe! This is the 23rd pattern that Leila and I have released over the last two years and at the time of posting, there’s about 48-hours left to get 15% off (no discount code needed). Here’s a little bit of wardrobe and colour-scheme exploration about fitting these… Continue reading Tarawi in the wild!

A+R Linen Tarawi

I’ve been on a Tarawi Shirt-making tear over the last wee while, which I suppose is to be expected when you’re preparing a shirt pattern for release into the world! My latest version uses the 3″/8cm check linen from A+R Fabrics in Australia. I was planning a colour-blocked version because I didn’t think I had… Continue reading A+R Linen Tarawi
