Brown Loxton Leggings

The Loxton Leggings are the new Muna and Broad pattern (M&B email newsletter subscribers have 15% off this week and Muna and Broad Patreon Insiders and Makers save 25% on ALL patterns at ALL times)! Yesterday I shared my colourblocked leggings and today it’s non-colourblocked bike shorts! These shorts (and the resultant combo) was…… Continue reading Brown Loxton Leggings

Loxton Leggings: Colourblocked

The Loxton Leggings are the latest pattern from Leila and I at Muna and Broad, and they’re delightful beyond my own expectations and accidentally ripe for colourblocking! Folks had been asking us for leggings for years, and we’d avoided it for a few varied reasons. I wasn’t that excited by the idea of leggings,…… Continue reading Loxton Leggings: Colourblocked

Pink Sculthorpe

Muna and Broad’s 3rd Birthday celebration saw a lot of our makes popping up in my feed and gave me a lot of inspiration! I saw a lovely pair of pink Birchgroves (see them here) and it was the inspiration I needed to finally make myself a new pair of Sculthorpe Pants! It’s been a…… Continue reading Pink Sculthorpe

Cargo Glebe & Waikerie

@Ithacamaven’s Top, Down, Centre, Out seems to be the topic of conversation that’s attached to every self-sewn pair of pants on the internet! Recently we got a question about TDCO on the M&B Patreon forum, so I did some additional research and dove in with my Glebe Pants pattern to make some new pants for…… Continue reading Cargo Glebe & Waikerie

High-rent pink Glebe

For my recent weekend trip to Wellington for Camp Boom (a camp for fatties) I took the opportunity to sew myself up a little travel capsule of new makes! I love a deadline and also an excuse to kick myself into making things I’d been planning for ages, but hadn’t necessarily got around to! Capsule…… Continue reading High-rent pink Glebe

M&B pants

At Muna and Broad we’re celebrating our 3rd birthday and we’ve shared 5 days of prompts for folks to share their M&B makes on Instagram! Up first, pants day! What better time to delve through the archive for vintage pants (3 years old is vintage now). Above, our first pants pattern, the…… Continue reading M&B pants

Bishop Melba Top

A little while ago I shared this Melba Dress sewing fail on Instagram- a sad outcome for this deep stash linen which I cut into far too haphazardly. With the bold sleeves and the red colour, it felt like something I should be wearing as a church chorister. View this post on Instagram A post…… Continue reading Bishop Melba Top

Red and pink combo

Pinterest can attest to my love of pink and red combos, but my wardrobe couldn’t, until now. Inspired by this post from The Fine Cloth Company which showed their candy apple red and bubblegum pink linens combined into a tiered dress, I went ahead and purchased The Exact Same Fabrics for my own colourblock adventure…… Continue reading Red and pink combo

Pale Peach Waikerie

Back in July last year I made a couple of hacked Waikerie Shirts from Fine Cloth Company linen. I made a gathered mocha Waikerie and this breast pocketed peach Waikerie. While the mocha Waikerie got a lot of wear, this peach shirt has been somewhat spurned. The mocha linen was a slightly heavier weight…… Continue reading Pale Peach Waikerie

Silk noil and raw linen

Here’s a fun little combo which includes 2 pieces that I’ve already shared here on the blog- my most recent and what’s probably my earliest make in A+R Fabric! My top is the Waikerie Shirt in moss silk noil and the pants are Glebe Pants in raw herringbone linen. The contrast between these 2…… Continue reading Silk noil and raw linen
