A classic...The Spiral Cowl Collar



 Yes, I sewed for myself again!  Yes, it's yet another Cowl-neck tunic!
But before you think I am being redundant please remember:
  1. It's autumn, and I live near Buffalo....brrrr
  2. I have more than one ugly neck scar to hide.
This version features a applied cowl collar that has been "spiraled" before being sewn to the neckline. I love how a Spiral Cowl always drapes in nice even folds and covers the neck seam...rather than just "flopping down".  

Do we all know how to "spiral" a cowl ?  If you would like a quick tutorial, let me know in 'comments'...I'd be happy to snap some pics when I make another of this style in Stretch Velour ;)

You are a mind reader! I love all your tutorials, but have been wondering how to create a cowl with software. If I knew how to create the shape, the rest will be easy! Thank you so much!

Please, please do. I have a TNT knit base that can always use another collar variation. It's getting cold here too so v neck tops aren't going to be an option in a couple of months.

Hi Mae and all...thanks for the nice comments!

A Tutorial will be done ASAP...I have been especially busy packing orders from my store, www.FashionSewingSupply.com ...so look for the mini-tute probably on Friday or Saturday.

Mae, the fabric I used for this tunic is a pleated rayon knit.

Yes, tutorial, thank you. You are great!! My first (and last) cowl flopped down and I had to always rearrange it. That's why it was my last.

Spiral cowl sounds wonderful. I love cowl necklines.

I love that fabric!!! I'm loving all these tunic tops you're making :) I intended to make some for myself, but in perusing the stash, found nothing appropriate - so... HAD to visit Fabric Mart :)
