above A FROLICK-WORTHY PEPPERMINT WRAP SKIRT BY @ENDERALLSEWS
“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers,” says romantic orphan Anne Shirley in Lucy Maud Montgomery’s seminal classic Anne of Green Gables. Of course, she was talking about the incredible autumnal beauty of Prince Edward Island in Canada, but we find your marvellous makes and various stitchy capers just as breathtaking to behold.
To celebrate you all, we’ve put together a roundup of some of the most spectacular sewing we’ve spotted this month. If you want to show off your sweet makes, be sure to tag us in your posts and you might see yourself in The Stitch Up in months to come!
Hear Those SLAY Belles Ringing
Check out some incredible interpretations of our latest pattern, the Peppermint Belle Shirt! @Rjuparjupa made hers with a gorgeous brick-red linen-cotton blend, while @AshleyyCramp went for a bold African wax print.
HOUSE OF BLOUSE
These lovely ladies look bloomin’ gorgeous in their sweet wrap blouses. @Phantosmia_ looks fantastic in a floral Peppermint Wrap Top and @WearHope is pretty in pink wearing the Peppermint Albion Blouse.
CAN YOU HACK IT
These dreamy dresses are both moments of pattern-hacking magic! @MakingCothesWithStories turned the Peppermint Pocket Skirt into a fabulously colour-blocked dress, while @JessiLikeWhoa mixed and matched the Peppermint Bowen Dress with a McCall’s pattern to create the perfect flannel fall dress!
GREEN WITH ENVY
Forget Kermit, it’s easy being green! @NoodleAndBee is ever glorious in her Evergreen Cloud Linen Peppermint Wrap Top and @_Marueli_ looks as cool as a cucumber in an easy-breezy Peppermint Everyday Dress.
WRAP IT UP
The Peppermint Wrap Skirt makes a beautiful canvas for a beautifully patterned print like @OliviaMakesThings_’s soft floral viscose-linen and @Lrhlnfrgsn_Sews’ hand-blockprinted Merchant and Mills’ cotton.
PAINT THE TOWN RED
A nice pop of red can make for a spectacular outfit like @Another_Sunderland_Sewer’s upcycled bedsheet Peppermint Bowen Dress or @SewingOnBobbinMoon’s stunning Kerry Irish linen Peppermint Milton Pinafore. Love ya work!
