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!

Step into spring with your very own pair of sweet, stylish and suitable-for-every-occasion shorts! This cute and casual option is perfect for popping to the market, going out to dinner and everything in between, and the paperbag waist detail gives a bit of visual interest and is easily adjustable for maximum comfort on those days when one cupcake just isn’t enough.

We made ours in a light, versatile blue linen from The Fabric Store, but they would also look great featuring an eye-catching pattern or in a vibrant block colour. Wear with shirts, casual tops, sandals or flats and sport these super shorts all over the place!

Download our free pattern by the talented folks at Pattern Runway, and get ready to stitch up this new wardrobe staple. Share your creations on social media using the hashtags #peppermintspringshorts #peppermintpatterns.
