Nikko Top and Dress
£12.00 – £17.00
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 like the Lander Pant. 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.
