Striped cowl top

Oh my gosh, I love this so much. I want to wear it every day!

For the pattern, I just used a raglan knit top pattern I had. I made up the cowl neck, sleeve treatment, and shirttail hem to look like the Anthropologie top. The fabric is cotton interlock from Chez Ami.

The tabs are just decorative. I didn't bother making buttonholes. :-)

Great top! What raglan shirt pattern did you use? Any chance you tell us the rough measurements of the cowl? Well done, I can imagine that you want to wear the shirt all the time.

Great top, and I agree about wearing it every day.

Please share how you did the cowl.

This is perfect on you. I hope you'll wear it, too! (Re: your comment on my SWALP!) And yes, I'm also itching for the spring fabric markets to begin :)
