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
I’m on a franken-pants kick at the moment, and I whipped up these buttery soft tencel pants with a slightly tapered leg. This mulberry tencel is from Fabric Deluxe in Australia. This is about a 5oz tencel, but it’s buttery soft and has a slight peachskin or sandwashed sheen. I thought maybe it wasn’t heavy… Continue reading Plum frankenpants

We’ve been working to extend the sizing and also add some long-sleeve options for the Torrens Box Top pattern that we’ve released under Muna and Broad! This is my second test of the narrow-sleeve extension, and I’m so pleased that I’ve now got the woven drop-shouldered long-sleeve top pattern that I’ve been looking for!
