Fabric Suggestions
You can choose from a variety of jerseys for the Cowl Neck Dress & Top. We recommend heavier jerseys, such as ponte di Roma for the dress version, whereas for the top we recommend lighter weight fabrics, such as a drapey viscose jersey.

Fabric Requirements
The Cowl Neck sewing pattern is sized between UK sizes 6-20. See the chart for details on fabric requirements. 

Like all our patterns, the sizes are nested to make it easier to grade between the sizes, depending on your measurements.

What will I receive?
The downloadable pattern file contains:

  • printable pattern (in both tiled print-at-home and copyshop format)
  • fully-photographed printable instruction booklet
  • copyshop permission letter

The Cowl Neck Dress pattern is either 27 A4/US letter pages, or 2 A0 copyshop pages.

If you purchase the PDF Pattern + Copyshop Printing option, you will also receive your pattern printed on A0 paper in the post. Find out more about our PDF Printing Service here.

So what is a PDF pattern?
A PDF pattern is a downloadable pattern that you print yourself at home on A4 or US letter paper. Alternatively you can choose to have the copyshop files printed on large A0 paper, and posted to you at home. If you’re using the A4 or US letter options, simply download, print at home, tape together and let the sewing begin! When you print the pattern, print at 100% (you might have to uncheck the scale box). Print page 1 first, the square should measure 10cm x 10cm.
