Hello and welcome back to Sewing Therapy. I’m Sara and I invite you to sewalong with me. If you’ve been following me on social media, you may have noticed that I have been binge-sewing turtleneck tops. When I reached out to you for suggestions for additional patterns, several of you suggested the Nikko Top by True Bias. So today’s video is to sew a Nikko Top!
Turtleneck tops are generally beginner-friendly projects, especially if you need to overcome any fear of sewing stretch fabrics, as you don’t need to worry about an imperfect neckline showing. This video is a quick one and I’ll sew a basic top. And for all beginners out there, I include my favourite tips for sewing rib knit fabrics, one of my favourite cold-weather stretch fabrics. Please stay tuned for the next video that will cover various sleeve hem options that look good on stretch fabric garments: slits and thumbholes!
There are numerous turtleneck top patterns options out there that each have their own charm. After watching this video, browse to find your favourite and let’s get sewing together. Before we start cutting fabric, let me highlight a few things that you can do to help support the Sewing Therapy community. Simply click subscribe, like, and ring the notification bell.
