The Cowl Neck Tunic looks great with leggings (of course!) but the top and tunic are versatile partners in your wardrobe.
For summer, you can leave off the sleeves of either the tunic or the top for a great summer tee! Just edge-serge the arm openings and turn and topstitch at 3/8” with a stretch stitch.
Make the cowl neck tunic to wear with skinny pants. A slim, tapered pant like the Tapered and Wide Leg Pant can go to work with a heeled shoe or bootie and under a jacket like the Fitted Jacket, Princess Jacket or Boyfriend Jacket.
Make the cowl neck top to wear with jeans and skirts. The cowl neck top length is perfect to wear with jeans under a puffy down vest. The tunic length looks great over the Pencil and Tapered skirt, with tights and boots. Or pair the top with the Travel Trio Two pocket A-line skirt, tights, boots and vest for a great, comfortable weekend look.
Make the cowl neck top for evening wear: In a shimmery metallic knit or stretch velvet, the cowl neck top will pair perfectly with a long, graceful skirt like the A-line skirt or a short, slim Pencil and Tapered Skirt.
Make an A-line or swing version of the cowl neck tunic following the instructions in the pattern (you'll be adding width and length below the bustline).
Be the most stylish runner, yogi or skier in your group by making the cowl neck top as a baselayer, using Polartec PowerDry lycra knit. You can even make it from Polartec Powerstretch double velour for a cozy and stretchy fleece baselayer. Be sure it's the Powerstretch or Powerdry as the craft fleece doesn't have Lycra (and neither does standard 100 weight Polartec velour fleece.)
