above A TERRIFIC TAPESTRY-BACKED SAMFORD SET FROM THE BRILLIANT @BYBEABROWNE
The only downside to Me-Made May is that you’re all posting so many marvellous makes, it’s hard to keep up, and absolutely impossible to pick our favourites! It’s an embarrassment of riches and you simply must head to the appropriate hashtags to check out the rest of the #MeMadeMay2023 and #PeppermintPatterns goodness.
To celebrate you darling buds of May, we’ve put together a roundup of some of our favourite 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!
TAKE A WALK ON THE WILD SIDE
Take a peep at the gorgeous greens on display as @ChrisInSeams preens like a peacock in another fantastic Peppermint Samford Set in Rifle Paper Co fabric while @CrookedPins prowls the streets in a spectacular pair of leopard print Peppermint Wide-Leg Pants.
THE OL’ RAZZLE-DAZZLE
We love it when you beautiful geniuses put your brilliant brains to jazzing up a pattern in ways we could never predict and these two smarty pants have blown us away – @CraftyProfessor’s hand-stitched sashiko Peppermint Robe Jacket is sensational. As is the magnificent @ByBeaBrowne’s tri-fabric, tapestried, neon-piped Peppermint Samford Set! Swoonsville.
PEP PEP HOORAY!
A couple of cuties rocking the heck of the Peppermint Peplum Top (and also some adorable headwear). @ChantiSewSew is tripping the light fantastic in a brilliant brick red, while @Rena_SewSolo is giving layers and coordination (plus dog!) in a brilliant Lady McElroy wool tweed.
Some fantabulous Peppermint Wide Strap Maxi Dresses! @A_GirlWithAnAccent customised her classic linen make with some terrific tie straps and @Nan_And_Ariane made her second show-stopping number with a specially saved silk blend.
These groovy gals are looking hot to trot in their smart casual ensembles. @Allie.Upcycles is keeping it thrifty with her free deadstock fabric Peppermint Wide-Leg Pants and @HauntedThimble is nailing the business goth aesthetic!
FLOWER PUFF GIRLS
There’s something about the Peppermint Paddington Top and floral fabrics that’s simply a match made in heaven! @Ruth_Creates shines in tropical technicolour and @Alice_X_Wang blooms beautifully in Minerva-exclusive viscose.
BACK IN BLACK
It’s a truth universally acknowledged that a good black dress goes with everything. We see that here with @CarlyInTheClouds’ cosy and colour-blocked Peppermint Wide Strap Maxi and @ViewsFromTheStitch_’s bee-utiful pattern hacked Peppermint Pleated Summer Dress. That’s fashion, darling!
