Sewing School: Introducing the Peppermint Rozelle Slip


Slip into something a little more comfortable with our latest pattern, the Peppermint Rozelle Slip.

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.

Many thanks to our sewing partner Spoonflower for helping to make our patterns possible! The world’s largest marketplace of independent designs from global artists, Spoonflower is leading the way in custom, sustainable textile printing. Their on-demand process significantly reduces materials, energy and water, and uses non-toxic inks and fabrics that are ethically sourced. Pop over to for inspiration for your next me-made project.

We used Spoonflower’s Organic Cotton Sateen, printed with a gorgeous art nouveau-inspired design from Austrian designer Michaela Kobyakov.

This pattern is free with a copy of Issue 58 (both print and digital copies), and the digital downloadable version is available on our website under our new ‘pay-what-you-like’ initiative. We’ve been giving away our patterns for free for many years now, and wish that we could continue to do so. But producing these patterns (including paying patternmakers as well as the ongoing promotional, creative and logistical costs) is costly and as a small business with rising expenses, we now need to charge a small amount to help support our work.
