I have to give credit right away to the Selfish Seamstress for this cowl neck top I created from her design.
All of my upcycled creations on this site are from thrift store finds and this one is no different. Even though I used Selfish’s pattern, I started it off from this white dress I found for a buck! The bottom of this dress is a slightly different material than the main portion of it.
And then I printed out the pattern and worked it onto the dress in just the right place. Resizing it a bit bigger for me. Yeah, cuz Im a bit selfish too!
For the cowl, I used the bottom portion of the dress which was a softer, looser knit than the rest of the dress. I needed a bottom band and so I had to sew a few pieces together to get one. I removed the buttons up the front but left the pocket in its original spot.
This is such a comfy top that I made another in a darker color, again from a dress I purchased for a buck! Thanks Selfish Seamstress!
