I’ve got a fabulous new project to share today and this one is for the little girls: how to sew a Girl’s Cowl Neck Top, with a free Girl’s Cowl Neck Top Pattern link included!
After making myself a cowl neck top last week, just for fun, we tried the tester version on my little missy. She got one look at herself in this beautiful sweater with the very adult-like drapey cowl neckline and had to have one for herself!
She’s definitely growing, but there was still plenty of room to cut the top apart and use my free girls’ raglan pattern to make a version of this top for her.
I cut my tester version apart at the seams and used the girl’s Raglan pattern to recut the pieces for the front/back bodice and sleeves. (Go here to get the girl’s pattern.) She wanted her top to be long, so I left the length where it was on my original sweater – which turned out to be the perfect tunic length.
To attach the cowl to the top I followed my Cowl Neck Top Tutorial exactly, the only difference was, rather than trim the front bodice down to 2 inches, I trimmed it down to 1 inch. (see that specific photo here.)
Raglan style tees are very simple to sew. I think they are even easier than my favorite peasant pattern since there are no casings to create or elastic to add. Adding the cowl to this top is a piece of cake!
Do you know a sweet little miss who would love a cowl neck top like this one?
As always, if you sew something from one of my tutorials or patterns I would love to see it! Be sure to come back and share a photo on my facebook page or tag me on Instagram @scatteredmom, with #scatteredmompatterns!
