Did you see Kelli’s newest pattern release? True Bias just released a new top and dress pattern, Nikko and I sewed a few test runs of this pattern right before Christmas!
The Nikko is a great mock turtleneck pattern that has a ton of options. It can be sewn as seen here in view B as a long sleeve mock turtleneck. There’s also a sleeveless top option, and then there’s also two dress options, sleeveless and long sleeved.
I sewed the long sleeve top for my daughter in a size 0. There were not many changes to this pattern since testing, just lengthening the arms and the hemline a bit (which I didn’t hem either, so the picture you see is likely much like the final pattern). Kelli also added a little more ease towards the waist of the pattern.
This version was sewn out of a very lightweight knit from the imagine gnats shop, but it has since sold out.
I also sewed myself a sleeveless nikko, but haven’t had a chance to snap some good pics of it! I love this quick, versatile pattern!
Here’s one more picture for you! For all of my curly haired readers, I would love some of your curl advice!!! My daughter has the prettiest curly hair, and it has been a fun road to learning what products work well with her hair. We’re always on the hunt for new products or hair routines to try. What works well with your curls?
Here’s a quick sewing recap
