Issue 39: Free Sewing Pattern

Could this sweet-as button-up dress be your spring wardrobe staple? Layered for cooler days or on its own for summer, we reckon Issue 39’s free pattern is destined to make frequent appearances in your wardrobe rotation. As you need to do to make this dress-dream a reality is download this exclusive Peppermint pattern created for us by Emily from In The Folds, then whip up your choice of the 10 different size options (and follow along at #peppermintbuttonupdress on Instagram to see variations from other sewers). We used the pine heavyweight linen in our version from The Fabric Store – can’t wait to see what you choose!

We’re loving the version below, courtesy of our lovely friends at The Fabric Store, who partner with us to bring you these fab free patterns. They also have a review of the pattern over on their website if you’d like to read more of their take on making this dreamy frock…

Last but definitely not least, here’s a roundup of a few of our favourites from socials – head over here to get your stitch on, and don’t forget to tag us so we can see your creations!
