The Bronte Bathers | A Pattern Collaboration with Swim Style Patterns

Made in collaboration with Sharon and Justine Cowie, the marvellous mother-daughter duo behind Swim Style Patterns, the Bronte Bathers are a terrific two-piece bikini perfect for beach-ready babes. With high-waisted bottoms and a twist-front top, she’s the perfect combination of fun in the sun and supportive coverage – you can even omit the twist tie and create a bandeau top! Featuring all the bells and whistles, from tidy interior linings to removable bust cups and adjustable straps, by the time you’ve sewn up this simple set, you’ll have leveled up into a swimwear master!



The Belle Shirt | A Pattern Collaboration with Modern Sewing Co

Made in collaboration with Modern Sewing Co’s marvellous Hetty Adams, this beauty offers a twist on traditional shirting tropes with striking details such as a wide placket, straight point collar and bell sleeves. With clean, clever construction, she’s a dream to sew and a joy to wear, whether you embrace modern minimalism and whip one up in monochromatic linen, or rock a bold print and make a statement shirt – or dress! That’s right, she contains mul- titudes, or at least multiple views. The opportunities are endless.


The Rozelle Slip | A Pattern Collaboration with Stitched for Good

Made in collaboration with Stitched for Good’s Annie Robinson, the Rozelle Slip is a bias-cut beauty – a sophisticated slip dress with wide-set straps to support those whose busty bounty cannot forgo the support of a brassiere. Gathers in the bust and smart darts in the back create a shapely, self-lined bodice, and the bias- cut skirt drapes like a dream – vary the length of your skirt to go from date-night diva to preppy picnic perfection. Just whip up the invisible centre-back zipper and va-va-voom your way to carefree elegance.

The Samford Set | A Pattern Collaboration with Sew to Grow

Made in collaboration with Sew to Grow’s sensational Lindsey Rae, the Peppermint Samford Set is the ultimate in day pyjamas – a loosely cropped, camp-collared shirt that brings the perfect amount of slouch, and a pair of wide-leg pants with front pockets, back pockets and an elasticated waistband that will draw you in with its trim touch. Day pyjamas are a game changer – clothes that are as comfortable as sleepy-time jammies but classy enough to wear outside. Roll out of bed and head straight to brunch wearing your set and people will look at you and think, “Damn, their outfit is so coordinated, I bet they have their whole life together.”

The Rosalie Skirt | A Pattern Collaboration with Forget-Me-Not Patterns

Made in collaboration with the marvellous Johanna Morris, the New Zealand-based patternmaker behind Forget-Me-Not Patterns, the Peppermint Rosalie Skirt is a midi-length dream, with a flat-finished, darted front and an elasticated back, combining class and comfort. Plus, you know we put some pockets in there! The star of the show is the fabulous feature flounce – with its dramatically high-pointed front and curved overlap. You’ll be prancing and dancing out of every room just to feel the drama. We used our fabulous friends at Spoonflower’s Petal Signature Cotton, printed with a buffalo check plaid in delicious olive green from American surface pattern designer Hip Kid Designs.

The West End Jacket | A Pattern Collaboration with Camimade Patterns

Made in collaboration with fabulous French patternmaker Camille Neuville of Camimade Patterns, the Peppermint West End Jacket is a universally useful, gender-neutral design with clever construction. It features a touch of tasteful top-stitching and a few fascinating flat-felled seams. Not to mention the patch pockets, perfectly placed for putting your mitts in and big enough to store all your essentials. Sew it in thick wool for winter warmth or lightweight cotton as a summer shacket – this is a pattern you’ll want to make again and again.

The Bowen Dress | A Pattern Collaboration with Hubba Ding Patterns

We collaborated with clever Kiwi patternmaker Kim Sisson from Hubba Ding to create the ultimate in comfort dressing – an extravagantly voluminous tent dress. With relaxed dropped shoulders and rah-rah ruffle sleeves, the oversized silhouette makes a dramatic splash, while being cool and comfy enough for everyday wear. And it’s reversible!

The Albion Blouse | A Pattern Collaboration with Vanessa Hansen

Made in collaboration with Sweden-based patternmaker Vanessa Hansen, the Peppermint Albion Blouse will have you swooning in style. A romantic wrap top with classy button loop closures and a distinguished double-darted bodice, it’s a refined take on the comfortable classic. With pleasingly puffy sleeves that come in short or long variations, both sporting some stunning statement cuffs, you can wow your wardrobe whatever the weather. The sooner you get to sewing, the sooner you can start languidly lounging in picturesque poses, showcasing your superior style!
