Buy the Nikko Top and Dress sewing pattern from True Bias. 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 are perfect to pair with high waisted trousers. Views C and D are dresses that extend to the ankle, with knee-length side slits. 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.

This sewing pattern is available to buy in the following formats:

What we think: Having made this pattern, we really love the fit – it’s the perfect layering piece. The dress version looks fantastic, and you can have one whipped up in an afternoon.

Note: The size ranges have been drafted from different blocks. The 14 – 30 block has a slightly more curvy set of dimensions than the 0 – 18 block. The 14 – 30 block has a D instead of a C cup (meaning a 4″ rather than a 3″ difference between your full and high bust) and has a 1″ larger difference between the waist and hip circumference. Both size ranges are drafted for an average height of 5’5″.

Notions: Coordinating thread; ball point sewing machine needle; 1/4″ clear elastic (1/2 yd) // Optional: Twin stretch sewing needle; fusible stretch tape.

PDF pattern includes: Instructions; print-at-home pattern; A0 and US copy shop files.
