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.

Suggested Fabrics: The Nicks Dress + Blouse shines in a variety of light to midweight wovens with moderate drape. We suggest the following:

  • For a flowy and ethereal effect, try: rayon challis, viscose, silk crepe, chiffon, charmeuse, or georgette
  • For more body, try: cotton shirting, batiste, voile, chambray, or linen
