PAY WHAT YOU WANT!
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!

Feel the power of the puff with our bold new blouse pattern, the Peppermint Paddington Top, ready to add to your ‘to sew’ pile – and your new closet staple for adventures aplenty!
We worked with South African patternmaker Sarah Steenkamp of French Navy Patterns to create everybody’s new favourite wardrobe essential – the perfect puff-sleeve blouse. Simple enough for everyday wear, it’s got just enough flair to bring the drama, mama. Raglan-cut sleeves make it the ultimate beginner sew, plus the gorgeous back buttons let you add your own personal twist. Tuck it in, wear it out and get ready for your shirt game to come out on top.
We’re super 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, with inks that meet Oeko-Tex 100 requirements and fabrics – including a Certified Organic range – that are ethically sourced. Pop over to spoonflower.com for inspiration for your next me-made project.
We used the new Cotton Lawn from Spoonflower, printed with a gorgeous floral pattern by Californian surface-pattern designer Grace Andersson – the winner of our Spoonflower design challenge! For more lovely hand-drawn floral patterns, check out all the entries here.
