Make a timeless shirt dress with the Nicole Dress sewing pattern!

Nicole is a classic shirt dress with all the trimmings: buttons all the way down the front, collar and collar stand, and a midi A-line skirt with a gently curved hem. Bust and waist darts in the bodice create a feminine silhouette and you can pick between a gathered skirt or a flat-fronted skirt with darts at the back. And yes, there are pockets!

We’ve given you the choice of two sleeve styles to make this a pattern that can serve you from spring all the way to winter. The short sleeve is finished with a stylish turn-up, whereas the long sleeve features traditional shirt cuffs with a bound opening.

Make Nicole in a viscose or crepe fabric for a fluid look, or choose a cotton poplin, cotton lawn or linen for a more structured style.

The Nicole Dress sewing pattern is aimed at Intermediate sewists, but we think Confident Beginners would be able to manage by using a stable cotton fabric and opting for the short sleeve version.

Have a look at our Nicole Dress Pinterest Board for inspiration and see what everyone’s making on Instagram by browsing the hashtag #soinicoledress.

Sewing Level

The Nicole Dress is an Intermediate woven shirt dress sewing pattern. Made in a stable cotton fabric with the short sleeve, it would be achievable for Confident Beginners.

What is a PDF pattern?

A PDF pattern is a downloadable pattern that you print yourself at home on A4 or US letter paper.

Choose to add on A0 printing and we will print the pattern on our A0 printers and post it to you so all you need to access digitally is the instruction booklet.

If you're using the A4 or US letter options, simply download, print at home, tape together and let the sewing begin! When you print the pattern, print at 100% (you might have to uncheck the scale box). Print page 1 first, the square should measure 10cm x 10cm.

Is this sewing pattern layered?

Yes! This pattern is layered so you can print off just the size(s) that you need. Find out more about layering here.

Like all our patterns, the sizes are nested to make it easier to grade between the sizes, depending on your measurements.
