above A JOYFUL VALLEY JUMPSUIT FROM @YARNBYJG
Hold us closer Peppermint pals; 2023 is halfway done. Now, the unceasing passage of time can be scary but we like to think of it as more time spent with you and your wonderful creations. As the seasons change, so do your makes ripen and bloom with new styles, fabrics and patterns. And we simply love to see it.
So, to celebrate, we’ve put together a roundup of a few of our favourite Peppermint makes we’ve seen out and about this June. If you want to show off your sensational sewing, be sure to tag us in your posts and you might see yourself in The Stitch Up in months to come!
Talented. Brilliant. Incredible. Show-stopping. What else is there to say about these Peppermint Samford Sets? And they’re both made out of bed sheets?! @Ms.SewGood took her sunshine-yellow Ikea bed sheet on a trip to the Alps while @SelvedgedSews stayed home to slay in her dazzling blue doona cover.
Can we get some whimsy in here? Thank you, ladies. @Lizzy.And.Bones is bringing the Ms Frizzle rizz with her Peppermint Bardon Dress upcycled from a thrifted quilt cover, and @Lauren.Jade.Makes makes a perfect fairy princess in her colourful Peppermint Wide-Strap Maxi.
SKIRT THE LINE
Some sensational skirts on show! @Made_By_Madeleine.Claire’s cool summertime Peppermint Pocket Skirt is made from Lithuanian linen while @MeasureFabric’s Maria made a rip-roaring Peppermint Rosalie Skirt from their Satin Twill Cheetah fabric.
A pair of perfect pinnies using the Peppermint Milton Pinafore! @TaylorSewMadeThat is sailing free in her adorable embroidered chambray while @Sharlene_Handmade_It opts for some fabulous floral linen from Potter and Co.
Apologies to Kermit the Frog, but these ladies make being green look very easy! @RepurposefullyClothed turned some thrifted mystery linen into an adorable elastic-waist-hacked Peppermint Playsuit and @Sask.Makes is stunning in a matching set with an Odgen Cami and Peppermint Pocket Skirt (sans pockets).
WILD WILD WEST (END)
Yee haw – check out this couple of cool-as cowboys sporting the Peppermint West End Jacket. @CaitSnyd_Sews is bringing West Coast chic with her pocket-maximising make and we are blown away by @KatieMakesADress’s stunning reversible variation with those gorgeous patchwork hexies and candy-cane stripes! Too cute!
