This is Style 3, Variation #1
Let's just call this one the regular 'vanilla version'.
And from Kentucky, we also have Cowl Neck blouses contributed by some of the members of the ASG Fit & Style group.
Shelby Smarte chose to design and sew a sleeveless version. Nicely done, Shelby.
From Kathy Wille, we see her lovely finished blouse. Looks fabulous. I bet it looks even better on you, Kathy!
Cowl necks - different body shapes...all look lovely. Thanks for the group photo ladies!
Another Kentucky contribution from Marilyn Neel in her summery sleeveless cowl neck dress that she called 'Summer Breezes'. She loved it so much, Marilyn sewed the same dress with 3/4 sleeves, which she called 'Shades of Autumn'. That's gorgeous fabric in both dresses, Marilyn!
This is Style 3, Variation #2
This particular design variation features curved shoulder detailing. It's based on the same drawing technique for the drapy cowl front, but before you begin the neckline drape, you cut away the curved shoulder shape.
Thank you, ladies for sharing your work. If any more of you have sewn the cowl neck blouse and would like to send a photo, I'd love to see your accomplishments. You likely know the address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
And for those of you who need a more 'visual' nudge, remember that your Beyond Bodice Basics designing book comes with its own how-to DVD. You be able to see exactly how these cowl neck designs are drawn from your basic Dress Kit bodice.
