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…

The COVID-19 pandemic is making things pretty tough for many small, independent businesses, ours included. To help ensure we stay afloat (and are able to provide lots of lovely free patterns for you in the future!), we’d love if you could spare a small donation of $2 (or whatever you are able) when downloading a pattern – because when it comes down to it, every little helps.

Our PayPal optional donation link is here.

Thanks so much for your support! We’re so grateful for our amazing sewing community, and we know that, together, we can get through this. Happy stitching, and good luck with all those #isolationcreations – we can’t wait to see your makes.

Team Peppermint xx
