Huon in Seersucker Gingham

Not my usual colour-scheme, this seersucker gingham was love at first sight, but I wish past me had purchased maybe 30cm more fabric!

This is the Muna and Broad Huon Shirt & Dress!

Fat ramblings on this most worn Huon Shirt.

Muna and Broad is celebrating the Huon Shirt & Dress this week, so I thought that meant it was a good time to take some more pictures of my Atelier Brunette viscose Huon Shirt, which gets a tonne of wear.

Sunday Plus-Size Pattern Roundup #35

It’s that time of the week again!
The roundup is ordered by the size range of the company, and you can see all of the posts that are part of the Plus-Size Pattern Roundup series here. You can also see all the patterns from previous roundups which are available over a 60″ hip.

Number 1, Heather Blazer

The new Heather Blazer from Friday Pattern Co. is available up to a 60″ bust and 63″ hip.

Kapunda Undies, Kapundies

My underwear draw is looking very healthy and stocked with Muna and Broad Kapunda Undies. These high-waisted undies sit perfectly on me, and don’t move around during the day- they’re basically the underwear that I’ve wanted for years but could never buy.

Sunday Plus-Size Pattern Roundup #34

This week, I was inspired by an email newsletter from Helen’s Closet about their Avery Leggings being on sale, so I decided to take an undergarment/athleisure/comfie lounging theme for the Sunday Plus-Size Pattern Roundup this week.

Number 1, Banksia Bralette

The Banksia Bralette from Muna and Broad is designed for larger bodies and comes in 2 cup sizes and with a narrow shoulder option.

The Banksia Bralette is available up to a 64″ full bust, and if you our sizes are too small for you, Muna and Broad will grade the pattern up to your size for no additional charge. The unique internal powermesh slings provide light support and separate the breasts- no more sweaty uni-boob!

For inspo, check out pics of my Shoalhaven on the blog, or the hashtag #ShoalhavenShacket

Shoalhaven Shacket

This isn’t an especially seasonal release for us down here in the Southern Hemisphere, but we did have a little cold snap here in Christchurch around Christmas, so it wasn’t too sweltering for me to take pictures of my wool Shoalhaven Shacket, the latest release from Muna and Broad!

I’m wearing my Shoalhaven with my Liberty print Waikerie Shirt, my red linen Birchgrove Pants and my Sevilla Smith shoes.

ChCh Sews A0 printing!

I made an exciting purchase/investment recently, and I’m now the very proud owner of a large-format printer- so I can now print my own A0 patterns while I’m still in my PJs!

I do a lot of printing as part of the Muna and Broad pattern development process, and since the going rate for A0 prints here in NZ is $7, that was adding up pretty quickly! After a decent amount of number crunching, the numbers suggested that it could work, so long as I had somewhere in my new rental for it to go!

And, here it is! Right now, it’s taken over my dining room table, and led to a serious re-ordering of my work/lounge/dining space. But, I’m so excited to have the capability to be a bit more self sufficient, and to also offer prints for other local folks. It doesn’t make sense to print and ship patterns from me (most other countries seem to have printing that is a whole lot cheaper than the cost of printing large format prints here in NZ), but for now I’m printing for folks based in Christchurch and doing pickup by arrangement.

ChCh sews is here!

And so I’ve launched a new website (www.ChChsews.com) and I’ve added another Instagram account to my app (@ChChsews) and I’ve got a Facebook page too (/ChChsews)!

A0 printing is $6 per A0 page, and I can also print A4 files too for folks who want their instructions printed, or for patterns that are just a couple of small pages (so aren’t worth printing as an A0)!
