Time to get shirty, stitchy pals! Say bonjour to our latest pattern, the beautiful Peppermint Belle Shirt.

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 multitudes, or at least multiple views. The opportunities are endless.

Many thanks to our sewing partner Spoonflower for helping to make our much-loved 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 Petal Signature Cotton, printed with a sumptuously textured pattern from Jessica Prout of Little Arrow Design.

Here at Peppermint, we’re passionate about all things craft, creativity and community, which is why we’ve invested so much into our gorgeous free sewing patterns over the years! We’ve been giving away our patterns to everyone for free for many years now, and wish that we could continue to do so. But producing these patterns (including paying patternmakers a fair wage, 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 continue our work. The good news is that a free printed pattern is included in our latest print issue, a digital copy comes free with the digital copy of the mag, and the digital downloadable version is available to download under a new ‘pay-what-you-like’ initiative – how cool is that?!
