CLOSET CORE • Nicks Dress & Blouse Sewing Pattern
Inject a little bohemian glamour into your wardrobe with the Nicks Dress and Blouse sewing Pattern by Closet Core. 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.
This is a multi-size paper including UK sizes 4 – 24 ( US 0 - 20 ). The pattern comes carefully packaged in an envelope together with step-by-step sewing instructions to complete your project.
