notes

• Skip the armhole facings if you will be adding a sleeve.

• Use a ⅝" (1.5cm) seam allowance.

• If you make it with a back zipper instead of a side zipper, you will need to add a ⅝" (1.5cm) seam allowance to the center back of the pattern and cut 2 instead of 1 on the fold.

• Bias garments like the front cowl are cut from a whole as opposed to half pattern. They are not cut on a fold. On the pattern sheet, the front cowl bodice is cut in half to save space. You will need to trace it and tape it together to make a whole pattern.

• The length of the zipper should be the length of the bodice center-back seam or side seam (depending on where you plan to insert it) plus 8" (20.5cm).

1. Trace and cut the Cowl pattern from sheet 3 front. Trace again, flip it over, align center fronts, and tape together to make a whole Front Cowl Bodice pattern. Trace and cut the Back Basic Bodice pattern from sheet 1.

2. Make the extended facing pattern for the cowl neckline by tracing the top portion of the Cowl pattern as shown below. Cut out the tracing and tape the extended facing to the pattern as shown.
