June 26, 2021 Update: The original Peppermint Pocket Skirt Bundle has been selling like hotcakes so we added some solid linen options, because this is a skirt you can't make just once. There are still some striped fabric options available.
Warmer weather begs for linen skirts. Deren was hankering to use some of our Savannah Stripe fabric and was especially keen on playing with the direction of the stripes. Enter, a simple skirt with huge pockets! This is the Peppermint Pocket Skirt designed by Paper Theory.
The Peppermint Pocket Skirt bundle includes everything you need to sew yourself a really cute skirt;
Deren had a heck of a time taking a good photo of herself in her new skirts so check out the videos of her wearing the striped skirt
or the solid skirt
This is a beginner friendly sewing pattern with a decent size range (to fit: 24"- 47.5" waist and 34"- 57.5" hip).
The skirt features a relaxed midi silhouette, a flattering gathered waistband and oversized ‘just in case’ panel pockets, this is a wardrobe staple. Pair it with a crop top, tuck in your favorite tee or put on your boots and head to the garden.
Find out everything you need to know about this pattern (including the size chart) and download the sewing instructions here. The pattern is free from Peppermint Magazine. *We will include a large format print of the sewing pattern pieces as part of our sewing bundle.
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.
