Get to know the Nomi Dress
Sew a stylish knit dress with our Nomi Dress pattern. Nomi is wonderfully wearable and simple to sew. She can be your everyday cosy outfit, a perfect party dress or a cute date look. She is so many dresses in one! And she’s a great pattern for Confident Beginners.
We always want to give you a variety of styles with our patterns so you can pick your favourite and make a garment that’s just right for you. Nomi comes with a choice of a classic crew neck or a twisted bodice to show off some décolletage.
You also have three length options. Keep your Nomi simple with a gathered knee-length skirt or add some swishiness with an extra midi or maxi tier. The longer version will keep your legs warm and can also be a floor-length showstopper to wear for a party!
Nomi works best in viscose jersey so you get both comfort and enough drape to make the most of the swishy skirt. Choose something special with a bit of sparkle or a luxurious stretch velvet for a festive look. Learn more about the many different types of jersey and other knit fabrics in our Introduction to Jersey class on Stitch School.
Have a look at the Nomis made by our Pattern Insiders. They used an array of different fabrics, from animal print jersey to gorgeous knit velvets. What will you make your Nomi Dress in?
