BurdaStyle 03/2013 - 128 Cowl Tank

This is a simple little cowl neck tank pattern from the March 2013 issue that I picked to use up some jersey leftover from another project.



I had to scrimp a bit on the length and the underarms so this version is a bit tight across the bust plus the way the ombre pattern flowed means that the back and front are different colours, but as a layering piece it will do (I'm wearing it under the jacket in this post).

The small cowl adds a bit of detail, but the neckline sits quite high so it does not gape at all and it fits on the shoulder really well.  This is a great basic that I will be making again - with the proper amount of fabric next time!


 Grey front, brown back!


That side seam matching was a total fluke!


The instructions for the cowl give a nice finish on the inside.

Gorgeous Allison. Nothing like a GREAT fitting cowl top - one that isn't too low in the front - which is usually the case with most patterns.

Very nice cowl top, like how it doesn't gape.

Little wardrobe staples like this are a great find. It looks terrific under the jacket.

Oh cool-good to see a cowl neck pattern with a non-gape-y neckline. Will keep this mind for the future, I like the style but the necklines on those can be a bit deep for my liking. This one looks just right though.

Cute! You should totally make more of them.

Great pattern, and I think the different colours for the front/back is an excellent (though perhaps unplanned) fashion choice. I've seen a lot of such design features in tops lately. Love this!

Great little top. I love the croc print too.
