Hey there, short stuff! When it comes to relaxing around the house this winter, you’ll look blooming lovely in these simple unisex boxer shorts. Choose polka dot or floral prints for the women’s version, and a contrasting yet complementary fabric for the men’s – then sew on brightly coloured or mismatching buttons as the final flourish. This same pattern works for men and women; just adjust the sizing to suit. It comes courtesy of the lovely Measure Twice Cut Once website, where you can find vintage-inspired knicker patterns for every occasion! Download this design and say ‘see you later’ to boring loungewear.

Here at Peppermint, we’re passionate about all things craft, creativity and community, which is why we’ve been providing you with gorgeous free sewing patterns for years! But now it’s our turn to ask a little favour…

Like many others independent businesses, the COVID-19 pandemic has been making things pretty tough for us. To help ensure we stay afloat through this time and can continue producing a magazine and providing free sewing patterns and doing all the good things we do, we’d love it if you could spare a small donation of $2 (or whatever you are able) to support the work of Peppermint
