True Bias - Nova Jumpsuit
The Nova pattern by True Bias is a knit jumpsuit with four views. All views have a fully faced neckline and armholes. Views A and B have a wide elastic waistband and inseam pockets. Views C and D have a straight fit through the waist and attached front pockets. Views A and C are a short romper length while Views B and D are long with an elastic casing at the ankle.
This jumpsuit was inspired by Covid lockdown fashion requirements. Designer Kelli wanted a comfy, easy to throw on outfit that could double as both loungewear and daywear. As she started dreaming up what this might look like, the Nova came to be.
