I have been wanting to make a cowl neck top for a while and finally found the time to make it yesterday morning. I created the pattern from my custom sized block and then altered it slightly to get the front to drape nicely.





Pattern


I used a viscose jersey knit fabric because it drapes well and therefore is ideal for creating a cowl neck. I cut out the back and waistband on the grain first and then draped the cowl on the bias. I finished the back neckline and armholes by overlocking the raw edges, pressing under and then stitching with a single coverstitch.

Thank you for looking!

that looks fantastic.  It fits so well and drapes so nicely.  How do you find the stretch to be with cutting the front on the bias?

Thank you everyone for all of your lovely comments!

Thank you! I was actually surprised at how badly it draped. When I was trying out ideas it draped pretty well but on the dress form it didn't work quite so well and on me I couldn't get it to look good with lots of drape so I settled for a design with less drape in the end.

The drape is really pretty - you did a very good job.  I wouldn't know where to start to draft a drape neckline!
I'm off to your page to take a look.
Oh, and you can't go wrong with any pink clothes in my opinion.
