Lydia Hack--An Anthrocopy Cowl

Added Mar 23, 2011

Minneapolis, Min...






I made this cowl-neck Anthrocopy following the directions of Tanit-Isis. I have made several versions of the Lydia top, but this was the first time I altered it to quite this extreme. I was quite excited when it all came together. I made two versions a long and a short sleeve, because I live in Minnesota and need some exciting long-sleeve Ts.

    Thanks sigrid for the tip for cowl collar, as I couldn’t go on the link u suggested to me, I had to reflect the different ways of adding a band of fabric to the collar and how to draw them on my own pattern or how to adapt one of my patterns, it was and is still very interesting , I do the manipulations in 3D mentally not knowing any software that does it( but if somebody knows, I have actully a draftsight what do u guys think of it) but the result on the pattern of the dress I ceated turned out really nicely though the effect is different from lydia’s hack.
