True Bias, Sewing Pattern, Nikko Top & Dress
Pattern includes sizes 0 - 18, see inset photo for measurements.
The Nikko pattern includes four views, all with a simple and stylish mock turtleneck. Views A and B are tops with a fitted silhouette that is perfect to pair with a high waisted bottom like the Lander pattern. Views C and D are straighter through the waist and hip, extending to the ankle, with knee-length side slits to complete the dress. Views A and C are both sleeveless, cut to resemble a racerback, but with enough coverage to wear a regular bra. Views B and D have long fitted sleeves that reach the wrist.

Notions: Coordinating thread, ball point sewing machine needle, 1/4" clear elastic (1/2 yd). Optional: twin stretch sewing needle, fusible stretch tape.
