Sew Over it – cowl neck top

I’ve already waxed lyrical about my love of this pattern in dress form! I figured it was time to see if I liked it as a top in my ever growing search to find a knit top pattern I like.

There’s not much to say about the pattern itself, I just chopped it off at the top length as suggested by the pattern and also decided to add the sleeves. Otherwise it was just the pattern I have been using for dresses.

The finished top looks quite loose but I like that. I also think it will work well over jeans or tucked into a skirt and think I might try this as a jumper in some lovely French Terry jersey I picked up in Walthamstow recently.

Arguably I should take it in a bit more at the back as its not pulled in by a belt which it would be in dress form but I think I’m sold! Another lovely quick make which will be a great wardrobe builder for tops and jumpers.

  1. It’s lovely, it looks great tucked in as it is a little baggy otherwise. Your fabric choice is great.
    I recently tried a cowl neck top myself (just finished today!) and my has SO many fit issues, but I’m sold on the neckline. I love your idea of a jumper, that would be so useful and flattering.
