My image cowl top

I bought the Winter 2011/2012 issue of the My Image sewing magazine after seeing Melissa from Fehr Trade's version. I had made a few muslins of  different cowl top patterns looking for the one but since Melissa was so positive, I thought it was nearly worth making a wearable top straight away. I did choose to cut into this skin tone, not a great colour but with a lovely hand cotton lycra, because I wasn't sure about the sizing, as it is a lot smaller in the waist then my Jalie patterns.

 It turned out awesome. Extremely quick too, being only a knit top.

The back view shows less wrinkles there than normal. Maybe I need to try reducing the waist ease on my other tees. The shoulders are a little wide,so I will make an adjustment for next time.

This photo is just me playing with new settings on Picasso. I took the photos before work so never got anything else than a hands on the hip shot.


  1. Yes, awesome. I am off to look for that magazine.

    1. I forgot to mention they have this magazine at the Crafty Mamas store.

  2. I love cowl necks. Looks perfect for autumn.

  3. This is really nice! I actually really like the color on you. Definitely a keeper!

  4. Really nice! I need to make another cowl neck or two. I agree, the back fit on this seems a little better on you than your Jalie tops (which aren't bad, of course, but if we're analyzing fit...)


Thanks - I love receiving comments.
