We have updated our popular Peppermint Pocket Skirt, with a new linen offering!
Our Sahara Linen is a beautiful 100% linen with antique washed finish. It is buttery soft, and a lighter weight linen than the Merchant and Mills we previously featured in this bundle. The washed finish gives this linen a soft hand and that perfect worn in feel before you even begin sewing! These beautiful solid colors are perfect for an everyday staple, with a fun silhouette. Enter, a simple skirt with huge pockets! This is the Peppermint Pocket Skirt designed by Paper Theory.
The Peppermint Pocket Skirt bundle includes all the material and notions you need to sew yourself a really cute skirt;
- enough fabric to sew your chosen size (2 yards for all sizes except for size 6 which includes 1.75 yards).
- 1.5" knitted waistband elastic
- 100m matching Gutermann Sew-All thread
- sewing machine needle
- printed pattern pages (size A0 pages x 2)
- *We will include a large format print of the sewing pattern pieces as part of our sewing bundle.
You can download a copy of the sewing instructions here.

Jessamy is shown wearing the Pocket Skirt in Sahara Lavender (sorry to say but the Lavender color has been discontinued).
Deren is shown wearing the skirt in a European Laundered linen and a striped linen (both are currently unavailable).
Jessamy is 5'2" tall, wearing the size 8. This is one size down from her recommended size to fit her 29" waist and 38" hip.
Deren is 5'1" tall wearing the size 14 striped skirt and the size 12 solid skirt to fit her 32" waist and 38" hips. She did not shorten the overall length so the skirt hits a bit lower than mid-calf but she did raise the pockets by 1". She cut the 'bottom' pocket piece for the striped skirt across the grain so the stripes would run horizontally across the side panels. The size 12 is a better fit for her.
Deren is wearing her solid linen skirt with a summery Madhu Top. We have bundles available for this top here.
