Jersey Cowl Neck Top

Jersey Cowl Neck Top by
A little while ago, my mum gave me one of her favourite tops which had started to look a bit shabby and asked me whether I could make her a similar top, because she loved the cut of it so much. (If it’s family that asks I can somehow never say ‘no’ to odd sewing favours.) Her birthday was this week and just in the nick of time I managed to come up with this little navy number, which was drafted and sewn last weekend. It fits her beautifully and she was super happy with her new ‘old’ top.Jersey Cowl Neck Top by

The top is sleeveless, cut in an hourglass-shape and has a box pleat in the front. The cowl neck is attached separately. The hem is brought in form with an elastic band. The armholes are bias-bound.

This way around it almost has a cooling effect and is super comfy to wear in this hot weather we have at the moment. Jersey Cowl Neck Top by thisblogisnotforyou.comJersey Cowl Neck Top by thisblogisnotforyou.comI love the result and was almost a bit sad that it wasn’t for me. Luckily, I have loads of the fabric left and am already dreaming about making a navy cowl neck dress.

Hopefully, I’ll get around to sharing this pattern with you at some point in the future! It could look really nice as a long-sleeved or 3/4-sleeved shirt for autumn. What do you think?

Happy sewing!


Stay in touch!

    I really love this top! The fabric is comfortable and nice. This kind of blue color is exactly my favorite. Thank you Lotti, you are the best!

  2. I know what you mean about not being able to say no to family – I’ll be spending today making a dress for my mum! The top looks great, and I think it would work really well as a dress too – I’d love it if you shared the pattern at some point.
