This cowl top is based off a pattern on the website of the Brazilian magazine Manequim. This means I couldn’t read the instructions at all, but I tend not too anyway (my bad) so I was okay. It’s a pretty easy pattern (not all of the ones they list are, though!). The cowl neck is cut as a separate piece and can be arranged a lot of different ways for different looks. I changed the bodice to fit more snugly as the original was pretty wide and blousy. I also double-layered the whole thing since my fabric was really thin, which makes the cowl drape a lot differently. I still like it, though.
