Sewing With Knits: 5 Wardrobe Essentials »
InstructionsI made the cowl by elongating the neckband by 9 inches but I had forgotten you have to turn it over so ended up with a 4 inch cowl in the end. Next time I would double it to 18 inches and raise the scoop neckline.
Type of item: Clothing
Lightweight cotton jersey with lycra.
What was your inspiration?
I love this pattern and wanted to make a cowl neck version of it with the long sleeves.
What are you most proud of?
Probably drafting the neckline - even though it is a little short I still like it. The fabric has enough fluidity that it lies nicely against the bodice.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Cut the neckband about 18 inches long because it needs to be halved when you attach it.
