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

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

Tarlee Funnel Neck

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

Wool Birchgrove Pants

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

Striped Tarlee T-Shirt

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

Torrens Box Top Bonus Sleeve

Leila and I are on Patreon, and we’ve been super overwhelmed (and thrilled) that 100 lovely folks have signed up to support us on a monthly basis! This sleeve that I’ve made was the September pattern bonus for the Insider and Maker level supporters of the Muna and Broad Patreon!

The new Torrens Box Top

You’d think that after more than a year of trying to photograph my makes, I’d be a bit better at posing or doing a good face- fear not! I’m here to prove that I’m just as un-photogenic as ever before! It probably doesn’t help that I’m always trying to have a conversation with my photographer-… Continue reading The new Torrens Box Top

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

Huon Shirt in Sister Mintaka

The Huon Shirt and Dress is the latest pattern release from Leila and I through Muna and Broad. I’ve wanted a gathered shirt like this for the longest time but could never find the right pattern, and if I found something close then it was inevitably never in my size!

Mustard Nullarbor Cami

The Nullarbor Cami and Dress is a pattern that I pestered Leila for for the longest time, because I knew it was a basic which was missing from the fat sewing pattern back catalogue. I knew because folks often emailed me to ask for recommendations and there weren’t many. There certainly weren’t many that were… Continue reading Mustard Nullarbor Cami

The Banksia Bralette and Tank

I’m a little late to the party to talk about the new Banksia Bralette pattern, released by Leila and I through Muna and Broad, mostly because I do have reservations about sharing pictures on the internet of myself in a bralette (funny where we draw the line isn’t it?)! While I was procrastinating on sharing… Continue reading The Banksia Bralette and Tank

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

Mallee Jacket from Muna and Broad

The Mallee Jacket is the latest release from Leila and I through Muna and Broad. It’s designed specifically for boiled wool, but I used a viscose/wool blend boucle which doesn’t fray because it was tough to find boiled wool here in NZ back when I tested this pattern during our warmer months.

Muna and Broad winter warmers

I’ve been dreaming of a cosy winter ensemble, inspired by this top I spotted on Instagram combined with this dusky pink wool suiting blend which I scored 3m of for $15 last year! I also loved Leila’s pink pleated-front Glebe Pants (which she didn’t reach for and can now be seen on the ridiculous cool… Continue reading Muna and Broad winter warmers
