The Minimalist Cowl

Added Nov 26, 2009

Aachen, Germany






This is a simple top that I whipped up- a big cowl collar on a fitted sleeveless top. I love sleeveless turtlenecks! I used some leftover black double knit from my English Tutor dress. I’ve made the super easy pattern available as a free download on my blog (size XS/S). Yes, I will eventually put all my patterns up on BurdaStyle too, once I’m not too lazy to write up detailed instructions :)

Material Notes

black double knit, I think rayon/poly/lycra




Garment Type
