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’d love to keep these patterns accessible to all and you are more than welcome to download them for free. However, we are a small business (it’s our superpower!) so if you’d like to support our patterns initiative, we’re inviting you to pay what you like. We ♡ our sewing community!

Dress it up or dress it down, throw it on and get ready to go, go, go with our latest free pattern – the Peppermint Bowen Dress!

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! You can button up your bosom with a sweet button closure and flash a V-neck’s worth of shoulder blades or flip those buttons to the back and display a little daring decolletage. All this and pockets too? Bump the Bowen Dress to the top of your to-sew pile already!

We’re beyond grateful to our sewing partner Spoonflower for helping to make our free 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. For more inspiration for your next me-made project, pop over to!

We used the Organic Sweet Pea Gauze from Spoonflower, printed with a spectacular sun-speckled terrazzo pattern by illustrator and graphic designer Eva Matise.
