above A SCRUMPTIOUS SUNSHINEY BOWEN DRESS BY @PAIGEJOANNAA
We’ve zoomed through March, Peppermint pals and the year shows no sign of slowing down. Take time to stop and smell the roses both literally and figuratively – perhaps with a little scroll through #PeppermintPatterns and some mindful appreciation of all the excellent makes your fellow sewists are stitching together.
That’s what we’ve been doing to fight off the March Madness (don’t know what sport is – assume it’s some kind of pollen-based thing?). To show off some of our faves, we’ve put together a roundup of some of the most fabulous makes we’ve seen this month. 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!
SAMFORD AND SONS
We’re beyond psyched to see your Samford Sets starting to come out! @Sharlene_Handmade_It’s patchworked gingham look is ringing all our bells and pressing all our buttons and @ChrisInSeams’ sensational silky number is serving a luxury spring break fantasy!
SHORT AND SWEET
Playing with the length of these classic patterns, @MeasureFabric is kicking her knees up with a smart tweed Peppermint Pocket Skirt and @Distracted_Historian flashes some ankle in a kicky little Peppermint Wrap Skirt in some gorgeous Merchant and Mills cotton linen.
OUT AND ABOUT
We love it when you take your makes out and about somewhere nice (and aren’t jealous at all). @DoctorWhoSews is repping an incredible Doops Designs fabric Peppermint Jumpsuit at UNESCO World Heritage Site Mahabalipuram, while @Indepenchant‘s shows off her lovecore-style Peppermint Wrap Top hack at a Chappell Roan show. Swoon!
JOURNEY TO THE WEST
Soft and cosy, these Peppermint West End Jacket hacks warm the cockles of our hearts. @Elle.Sy.Pique has duped a designer piece by cleverly quilting her chequered coat, and @Elllli_Knits’ sweet lilac make has added ruffles for maximum cuteness!
DRESSED TO KILL
A couple of classic drop-dead gorgeous dresses! @SewingWithDaisy is looking as adorable in her Peppermint Button Up Dress as her faithful four-legged friend, and @Melt.Stitches brings new life to the Peppermint Wide Strap Maxi Dress by adding two terrific tiers and pairing it with an enchanting May Gibbs print!
LA VIE EN ROSALIE
Our fabulous patternmaker friend @ForgetMeNotPatterns has unveiled her version of the Peppermint Rosalie Skirt and it is glorious! Peep the fitted back and interior lining! And check out another lovely version from @Helan_Creates in a breezy sky blue with some adorable daisies!
