Silk noil and wool

After more than a year sitting in the ‘finishing pile’, I dug these wool Muna and Broad Glebe Pants out and finally hemmed them!

Wool Glebe Pants-09

This time last year, I didn’t have an overlocker (I finally bought one in August 2020)! So, before finishing the hems, I also whipped around the seams with my overlocker! I also took the opportunity to whip up a pair of petti-pants!


The petti-pants are like a half-slip but for pants! I made View A of the Glebe but omitted the pockets and the waistband (opting for fold-over elastic across the top instead). I made these from what I think is a kind of viscose blend, and I serged all the various bits together. I wear them inside out, so that the serging/overlocking is facing the pants, and I get the smoothest inside pants possible!

In these pictures I’m wearing my moss A+R Fabrics silk noil Waikerie Shirt (collarless and short-sleeve sleeve bands) and my modified quilted Belmore Jacket (read about the shirt here, and the jacket here). I’ve been wearing this top-half green combo with both these wool pants and my pink corduroy Glebe Pants quite a bit, enjoying the low-contrast combo!

Wool Glebe Pants-05

I got the wool fabric that I used for the pants as a remnant from a local clothing store (that also makes their own clothes). Since the petti-pants stop them from being so itchy, I’ve been wearing them a lot more!

  1. Pettipants are such a great thing! So much easier and more practical than linings. Love this color combo too

  2. Brilliant wearing your pettipants with the seams away from your body. Never occurred to me but I will shamelessly copy! Love the pink and pistachio together (and I don’t even like pink very much)! Reminds me of a fancy petit four icing. Yum.
