Inject a little bohemian glamour into your wardrobe with the Nicks Dress + Blouse. In multiple variations with soft gathering and delicate details, it's satisfying to make and a pleasure to wear.

All views feature a loose-fitting V-necked bodice with a gently gathered shoulder and yoke. The slightly puffed sleeve is gathered at the shoulder; choose between a short sleeve, or a long sleeve with wrist pleats for shaping and an elastic gathered cuff. You may also choose between two interchangeable neckline finishes: a simple facing, or a bias-bound neckline with delicate rouleau button loops and buttons. View A is a button-front dress with a comfortable elastic waist, long or short sleeves, and three gathered skirt tiers. View B is a voluminous swing tunic with a gathered hip tier and long or short sleeves. View C is an elegant blouse with a faced neckline and long or short sleeves.

Sizes: 0-20 (print and PDF) and 14-32 (PDF)

A dreamy wardrobe staple!

I'll admit I fell in love with this design the moment it debuted. I bought fabric to make the same dress as one of the models but wanted to make one of the blouse versions first to check the fit and see how the gathering went etc. Instead of one of the blouse views, I decided to make a mashup of all three views for a short dress in a Closet Core fabrics cotton yarn-dyed flannel (about 150 gsm): it has the long sleeves, no-button front of view C, but I attached a lengthened first-skirt tier to the peplum line of view B, to make a short dress. I'm so happy with it! Especially for the first-time through of a new pattern, the instructions were thorough, and the burrito-yoke went so much faster than I remembered. The gathering is a lot but with basting each line before sewing, it was relatively smooth. My only surprise was that pre-cutting, I did my usual pattern adjustment of shortening the long sleeves by an inch, and it wasn't needed. The sleeves are coming up closer to 3/4 length than wrist-length, so I undid that adjustment for next time. I have plans for a view C blouse, as well as my original View A dress, and I can't wait to wear them all.

My favorite pattern ever

This pattern is so versatile and extremely beautiful.

I made the tunic in short and long sleeves and am now about to start sewing the dress. I am currently 8 months pregnant and the goal was to make a few versions to wear when nursing my new baby. I wanted to feel put together postpartum. Well to my surprise the tunic is perfect for my last month of pregnancy as well!

I highly recommend this pattern. It is so easy to size and fit (i am sure my projects will fit me throughout the last months of pregnancy through to the first year and beyond postpartum). The finished product is beautiful and elegant and the instructions are clear. I will be making loads of variations!
