M&B Outers

Muna and Broad is celebrating our 3rd birthday and we’ve shared 5 days of prompts for folks to share their M&B makes on Instagram! After pants day, we celebrate outer layers day!


Our first outerwear pattern was the Mallee Jacket, which was designed with boiled wool in mind. I picked this green because I thought it was a sensible and versatile fabric.

I still really want a pink Mallee.

Our next pattern was the quilted Grainger Coat. Designed for quilting your own coat, or pre-quilted fabrics, I took the easy route and used pre-quilted denim for my Grainger.

I have almost finished piecing together a very brightly coloured striped quilt top that I want to have quilted and then I’ll cut myself a Grainger from it!

Side Shoalhaven

Our next release was the Shoalhaven Shacket, which we released when the sewing world hadn’t heard of a shacket yet!

Here’s a joke about fat folks being ahead of the curve *wink wink*

The Belmore Jacket, a pattern which I have filled my wardrobe with! This is the pattern that I hoped would be in my size when I got into sewing (but I had to wait until we released it)!

I get the most wear from my pink boiled wool Belmore, followed closely by the denim Belmore with the giant Patreon pockets as it’s perfect for foraging, scavenging and taking to markets.

Lilac Cobden-13

The most recent M&B outerwear is the Cobden Chore Jacket. An excuse for a pocket party, I would love this lilac jacket with my whole heart if my machine didn’t hate top-stitching. Do not look closely.

Future plans?

Wouldn’t you think my collection’s complete? Wouldn’t you think I’m the girl… the girl who has everything? (that she needs in the outerwear department)?

Well, no. I’ve definitely got plans to replace some of these pieces, and also to hack and experiment with them! I’d like a tan coloured Shoalhaven (I’ve got the fabric already), a bright pink Mallee (boiled wool, of course)! I’ve got blue needlecord for a high-contrast Cobden! I’d love to try lengthening the Belmore for a serious slow-fashion look. And maybe a lengthened Mallee too! Stay tuned.
