Drape Drape 1, No. 1. Cowl neck top.
One of my Works in Progress is finally done. This is my second Drape Drape cowl neck top and, like the first one, this came together easily. The only problem was me dragging my feet when it got to the last stages. These Drape Drape tops are the first time I’ve made a cowl neckline, I didn’t think it suited me, and I was surprised at the shape of the pieces when laid out flat.
I altered the original pattern a little by making the neckline drape sit higher and I took it in a bit. This was because I was using fabric I’d salvaged from the Drape Drape Goddess Dress Disaster. See below….
I can imagine I’ll get lots more wear out of this in warmer months but it works OK layered. I’m walking around in a coat and under so many jumpers, summer feels like a lifetime ago. It was hard to finish this when I was looking out into a bleak wintery sky. And now last week’s snow has disappeared, London is back to its all-too-familiar grey. I just couldn’t face staring at yet more grey while I was sewing.
The cats are over the weather too. They’re averaging about 25 hours sleep each every day.
