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!

Love this pattern, so easy to make. The first of many!
I have been sewing clothing from patterns for 60 years. This was my first experience printing a downloaded pattern. I printed the letter size, cut and taped the pattern pieces. My challenge came with the small unlabeled parts.
I am still searching for the ends of the neck facings that must be on some other page. I look forward to cutting and sewing when I locate the skirt piece.
I love the easy to follow and versative Stevie pattern. I've already made two dresses and I feel great wearing them. Now I can't wait to buy the pattern for The Muse.

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!
