Stevie Nicks burst onto the music scene in the 70s with her dramatic style and bewitched us all with her draping, flowing frocks. In addition to her music prowess, Stevie is known for her bohemian-meets -rock n’ roll style.
Few people have defined free-spirited boho fashion quite like Stevie Nicks. Her sense of style and fashion was a huge influence over two decades. Flowy fabrics and vintage materials, her style is cyclical, and this pattern will work well throughout the seasons in silk velvets, dobby, lace, viscose, lawn, crepe - just about anything drapery. I’ve made her here in a variety of fabrics, an embroidered tulle, an up-cycled crocheted table cloth, a hand-blocked Indian print and a fine cotton dobby.
This pattern can easily be made in a day. There are no zips or buttons - it is a ‘sew easy’, ‘make in a day’ dress. Customise it by adding fringing instead of a frill to mirror the fringed shawls that Stevie wore. Or make it in a seductive black lace, as Stevie often wore in true music iconic fashion.
Make it short in an embroidery Anglaise for the beach, with or without jeans or shorts. Sweep the floor with an amazing print, work or play this pattern - it’s so versatile. Chuck on a wrap, kimono or biker jacket to wear out to a gig or the park. Accessorise with a hippy hat…
Let’s see how you can rock this pattern!

Bought the A1 size pattern on pdf and had it printed by one of your recomended links. I have used it twice now and made a full length version and adapted to make a short version too! Had lots of compliments from people at work.Great instructions with photos which make it really easy to follow. I will be making many more in the future, think a top will be my next make!
Stevie A4 & Letter PDF
Hi Caroline and team, I just wanted to say how great The Stevie, A4 PDF pattern has come together... the PDF is very easy to assemble, your instructions are fab and spot on... I’m currently in the process of making up The Stevie, I sourced some lovely vintage white lace tablecloths for up cycling... looking forward to making it for my daughter... thank you Caroline, ❤️ SewLaDiDaVintage 💐😊💕
I made it for myself at first, but my bust was too big so I gave it to my daughter. She loves it. I’m making myself a bigger size. It’s a great comfy pattern. Love it. And I LOVE Stevie Nicks! This pattern/dress brings me joy. Can’t wait to make it in a flowy fabric!
