above A PERFECT POOCH AND POCKET SKIRT COMBO FROM @ANIBALSDEN
We’ve made it to the ‘ber’ months, stitchy pals! That gentle slide to the end of the year where our friends in the northern hemisphere can burrow into increasing cosiness as you journey through Hot Girl Autumn into Cold Girl Winter. Down here in the southern hemmies, however, we’re looking down the barrel of Unseasonably Dry Girl Spring and Dangerously Hot Girl Summer. Ah, the inescapable realities of anthropogenic climate change…
But that doesn’t mean we can’t still have fun, right? And you’ve all planted another bountiful crop of beautiful makes for us to admire this month. To commemorate this heartwarming harvest, we’ve put together a roundup of some of the most marvellous makes we’ve spotted. 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!
WEST FOOT FORWARD
A couple of top-notch Peppermint West End Jackets for those on the cooler side of the world. We heart @SPWorkSpace’s phenomenal fit, made from Sevenberry fabric, and @H.E.R._Stuff‘s sweet denim number, made for her friend Naomi.
CELEBRATE GOOD TIMES
The Peppermint Wrap Skirt is a perennial favourite but this month we’ve seen some clever sewists take it out on the town as a formal fit – @KorrieKorrie made it into a terrific two-piece in silk dupion and @SageMoonStudio celebrated her 40th birthday in a special outfit of rich linen twill.
PLAID AND SIMPLE
These plaid looks are popping off! @Shaye_Hardisty is a vision of riotously clashing colour featuring a phenomenal Peppermint Wide Strap Maxi Dress, while @SewingChaos’s Peppermint Pocket Skirt, made in thrifted fabric and paired with a Jenny Holzer tee, makes the perfect outfit for the opening reception of a feminist philosophy conference.
SPOT THE DIFFERENCE
We’re going positively dotty over these beautiful polka-dot dresses! @Bxlsprout’s rayon Peppermint Peplum Top hack is cute as can be, while @Miss_Bortolot’s Peppermint Rozelle Slip is absolutely spot on!
SET OF SAMFORDS
Ah, the endlessly versatile joy of the Peppermint Samford Set – it works just as well as separates! @Unseamlessly has rocked some Salvo’s mystery fabric into the perfect punk pants and @Poppi_Florence’s vintage tablecloth top is a vision. You thrift flip queens!
SPRING INTO ACTION
The Peppermint Spring Shorts never fall far from our collective hearts. In fact, we may have some exciting news on that front coming soon… In the meantime, enjoy two excellent pairs – @PhoebeRosita’s marvellously modish linen and viscose two-piece and @Vrouwlijn_Wonderlijk’s awesome avocado-dyed linen shorts.
