Now it's a relatively sleek cowl/turtle neck, courtesy of Burda Magazine.
I used pattern #104 from the September, 2012 issue.
It's one of those sleeper patterns. A great basic that's hidden behind other less interesting garments. Like this jumper.
There was tons of room for the body pieces. But it is a lucky thing that my arms are short. The pattern has much higher sleeve caps than the original, dropped shoulder, design.
|Sleeve cuffs use the original hem|
For the turtleneck collar, I used the width of the original front hem, which was about the height of the collar Burda called for. It rolls to the inside too. Doesn't bother me in the slightest.
I constructed the entire thing on my serger. The fabric is ethereal.
