I absolutely love this dress pattern! The instructions are clear and detailed which was just what I was looking for! I have made two dresses using this pattern so far (one with sleeves and one without) and absolutely love both of them!
I have sewn more Nicole's than I can remember because it is a well written pattern that results in dress that are perfect for church and special occasions. I frequently pair it with the doll Nicole's and get stopped all the time!
I made this for my daughter's Santa pictures and, while it does take more time than some others, (because tulle) the results cannot be argued with. Truly stunning. :)
Perfect for Christmas :) super easy to follow
Easy to follow instructions
I'm a relatively new sewer however this dress was easy to complete.
Great party dress I made a Christmas dress
I love the fullness of this dress that comes from the built in petti underskirt! You can make it as full or not so full as you desire!
I searched the internet for a dress pattern that was both elegant, fancy and was quick and easy to make for my fall line of Children's Christmas dresses this year for my Etsy store and craft fairs. Nicole's Party Dress fit that bill. I love that it is lined. Lined dresses always have such a professional finish look to them. And they are quick and easier to make than trying to get a "facing" to cooperate. Don't let it being lined scary you away. I love that I have 3 choices for sleeves. The tulle built in "Can-Can" is perfect. The pattern and tutorial are well designed. The instructions are easy to follow and are well organize and thought out. Lots of pictures. I have been sewing sense I was 5 years when my grandmothers taught me, that has been 55 years ago. I am looking forward to unveiling my "Fall and Christmas" line this year!
I made this dress for my daughter's Christmas concert and another one for a wedding and they both turned out gorgeous! I love the tulle underlay for extra poof and the clear, concise instructions with plenty of pictures along the way!
This pattern made it possible for me to make a beautiful elegant dress that I never imagined possible.
What a beautiful dress! The pattern is well written, the features are classic, and the finished product is gorgeous.
The Nicole dress is timeless, classy beauty...it is easy to sew. I love the simple lines, and elegance. Perfect go to dress for holidays.
Stunning dress. Perfect for any occasion. One of our favorites.
so many options. my daughters love this one!
I love the classic look of this dress. I also love the built in petti. Directions are super easy!
Love the pattern for this classic, beautiful dress that can be made as dressy or casual as you like, depending on fabric choices.
This was one of my first CKC pattern purchases. I am so happy I found this brand. The Nicole is a beautiful dress, one that will never go out of style. The pattern is very well written, easy to follow and the dress is just plain beautiful.
I had not sewn anything in 10 years so I was a little nervous starting with a dress. There was no reason. The pattern and the directions made it so easy. No pulling my hair out worth stress like in the past. In the past I never put on button holes I would sew in snaps. Thanks to the tutorial on he blog I added button holes and that was so easy! This was my first CKC pattern but it is not going to be my last. In fact I have already bought several more and sewn more. I went from not sewing in 10 years to I completed 5 CKC items in 2 days.
This beautiful classic look party dress is deceptively easy to sew! Super quick but absolutely stunning result!
