There’s a new Muna and Broad pattern out in the world and it’s the Lobethal Shirt.
This oversized shirt is a statement architectural piece that we know folks will either love or hate. I’ve really been enjoying my 3 versions, and they’ve been getting a lot of wear!
This version pictured is an earlier wearable toile, so it doesn’t have all the extra special details that the final version of the shirt has, like the clever pocket facing, and side-hem split. There’s also a seam down the centre back in the final version- that’s great for fabric thriftiness but also adds some interest back there.
Size and Fabric
I used pink washer cotton from The Fine Cloth Company for this Lobethal Shirt, and it was really enjoyable to sew with (and the scraps have been a nice addition to my improv quilting). I made a Size G with no blending between sizes and my current measurements are 51″ full bust 49″ waist (ish) 60″ high hip.
I’m wearing this Lobethal with my Willandra Pants– they’ve languished in my wardrobe for far too long because they’ve had lots of wrinkles and I just couldn’t bother ironing them. I steeled myself and quickly used my steamer on them, and cursed myself for not doing this quick job earlier!
