this top is quite simple to make ones you get the idea, it has 3 parts : back (1) front ( double ) and an underline part which comes underneath the shoulders and gives it its structure . in order to get the big
cowl neck , i raised the neck line to the high i desired ( about 30cm or so ) and matched the front to the back. after sawing front and front together , we need to so saw the third part underneath the shoulders
( make sure to mark it where the shoulder line so you will know where to place it correctly ) and of course make sure to use a stiffener layer to give it the body it needs. to finish the arms halls i simply used a stripe
which i cut from the same fabric ( cut on a triangle ),and for the edges of the front and bottom of the top i left a generous amount of seam allowance ( 5 cm +1cm to hide the seam on the wrong side ).
now all there is left is to place to batons, one on each shoulder and make batons halls on each top corner of the front part. and that is pretty much it.
if you have any kind of questions ,don’t be shy : )
