Nikko Top

Originally released alongside the Sewing Society Kit in December 2021, this video contains exclusive hints and tips for making the The True Bias Nikko - long sleeved top version.

This video is perfect if you already own a copy of the Nikko sewing pattern and the supplies to make it but would like some helpful guidance on sewing it up!

The video doesn't replace the instructions that come with the pattern, instead Lauren shares her personal hints and tips that she finds useful to help you make a lovely garment.

This video focuses a lot of the types of fabric that were included in the corresponding kit. These were a slippery, drapey modal jersey and two types of rib fabric. You will find the video especially useful if you are using a fabric that is similar to these types of fabrics.

The video has over 20 minutes of footage, sectioned out with time stamps/chapters for easy reference and navigation.

The key construction steps are covered, including how to work with the rib fabric included in the kit, how to use framilastic, how to prevent the sewing machine chewing up the seam allowances and much more!

Once you have placed your order, the video link will be included in your order confirmation email. The Nikko Top sewing pattern is available through our website in sizes 0-18 (see below) or through the True Bias website in sizes 14-30.
