Orange Funnel Neck Top

Added Jul 1, 2014

by Ellen Hatteland

Nedre Vats, Norway






I had this knitted fabric in my stash and I wanted to try this pattern.. It was fun to sew since the sleeves are different from each other. I made french seam as in the instruction at the big neck and hand sew the hem at the neckline. Since the fabric are transparent I have to use a tank top underneath.. :)

Material Notes

Knitted polyester

    It is very beautiful, Ellen. The choice of the colour makes the top and creates a magic impression of warm shining around you. I like it very much!

      Thanks Zsuzso! As you can see on the picture one of the shoulder is falling down, but that’s how it suppose to.., but if you use a comfy fabric I’m sure you will be happy with it :)

      You convinced me for sure. The technical drawing threw me off but glad you’re so adventurous to try out this pattern. I’ll put this on my bucket list as well.

    Nice top and colour. I wanted to try this pattern also but was very hesitant because of the oversize neckline. Seeing yours might just do it

    Like Mary I was a bit bewildered by the pattern and wondered how it would look once done, but now I see your version and it’s beautiful and original and I like it a lot!

    I love this Ellen. I have to admit I thought it looked quite odd in the magazine!! I didn’t think it would sew up nice but you have done a smashing job on this. I love the fabric choice and the colour. The sheerness of the fabric gives it a delicate modern touch and it’s lovely on you. I love your trousers as well. You look radient x

      White would look great Ellen. I love cowl neck tops and dresses. My friends all wear polo necks in autumn /winter but I can’t wear anything restrictive or tight round my neck. The cowl is a great alternative. I am making cropped leggings / Capri’s at the moment out of ponteroma for work and casual wear. I love my comfort lol x

      I do love cowl neck as well. I’m looking forward to see you new Capri’s :-) I love comfy clothes too, special for holiday :)

    I like this top, it looks really quick and easy in the magazine and the result is quite stunning and casual. A great all-year -round design. Fab colour!

      Yeah, you’re right – it’s a very quick project, and I think it could be nice in a soft winter fabric as well :) Thanks for your nice comments Christie! ;)

    Yet another beautiful top. Love the color. I am wondering about the different sleeve. The technical drawing look really odd,

      As you may see, one of the shoulders is falling down when I’m wearing the top, but I suppose it’s how it’s going to be… Anyway it’s always fun to try new patterns ;) Thanks for your comments and support :-)
