Description

I made this top from our Hooded Cowl Neck Dress pattern, and simply cropped it! I first thought I would sew it in all black jersey, but stumbled upon this striped double knit and had a change of heart.

I still sewed the top with the black mesh yokes that I had planned on, but switched the fabric for the cowl/hood to a lightweight grey jersey since the striped knit was to thick.

This is going to be a staple in my fall wardrobe, and the cowl/hood is so practical. I pictured it here with a pair of leather leggings, but I also plan on wearing it with some ripped jeans. It didn’t take me very long to sew this top since I serged all the seams, and I’m think about starting another…

    Love the mesh & mix of colours. Hoods are the best for fall!
