Cowl Neck Tunic e738

COWL NECK TUNIC:  Close fitting, raised cowl neckline tunic or hip length top.

Note: A deeper neckline alteration is also included for sewists who would like the option for a lower cowl. Just follow the instructions at the end of the PDF.

SUGGESTED FABRICS:  LYCRA blend knit fabrics with at least 25% stretch. If using a woven fabric or a knit with less stretch a zipper can be added to the side seam. The more weight/drape your fabric has the better the cowl will drape.

 

NOTIONS:  Small drapery weight for cowl.

Great qualities of this cowl neck tunic…

A close-fitting back neckline and collar hug the body securely to offer a stable fit for this raised cowl neck top.   This top will not ride back off the shoulders. The raised cowl offers a modest fit as it drapes beautifully at the center area of the front neckline and upper bust without any extra and unflattering horizontal folds radiating from the armscye.

The sleeve cap sits high on the shoulder and fits close under the arm to contribute to the flattering silhouette.  The side seams are curved in at the waist and slightly rounded at the hip.

Guide to working with the Cowl Neck Tunic PDF

Design Variations

Shirred sides-Cut the top tunic length or longer and add a length of soft, narrow elastic to the side seams to gather the excess length of fabric. This gives a flattering shirring effect across the stomach and back.

A Line top or dress-Determine a flattering finished length and width for the hem. Lay a straight ruler at the side seams below the bustline, and angle the ruler to meet the new hem width. 

Tip: Choose your size based on the Tissue Pattern Measurements (finished garment) chart. Utilize the Perfect Sizing Worksheet to take the qualities of your knit fabric into account for fit.
