Lazy picnics in the park, long walks on the beach or balmy evenings out with friends: there’s nowhere this breezily stylish summer frock won’t take you! For this fantastic free pattern, we’ve teamed up the lovely lasses from Pattern Runway, a new boutique pattern company with all kinds of stylish downloadable sewing patterns. Wear this little number with flats, with hats, with sunnies and with headscarves – dress it up or down for any occasion and enjoy sporting this seasonal staple all summer long. We made ours in a light, breathable cotton from The Fabric Store, but it also works well in lived-in linen or beautiful, draped silk – play around with different pattern options like stripes, polka dots, printed or plain. And the best thing about this fantastic frock? All the compliments (and requests) you’ll get when your friends find out that you made it with your own fair hands.
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.
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.
