The winner of the Onion cowl is: Bird and Bicycle. Email me at elizabethmadethis at yahoo with your address and I’ll pop it in the mail.
Thanks to everyone for contributing your ideas for styling a cowl. It seems the majority was split between the notion that cowls need no further decoration and the idea that a short necklace can work with a cowl. I have a little Austrian crystal heart on a gold chain my Gram gave me when I was little that I could see working.
In the works is the Burdastyle cover dress from January 2011.
It’s a knit shirt dress with lots o ease because it’s meant to be belted. I made a muslin today and I was grateful for the extra ease because nursing makes matters absurd, and I hate traditional FBAs. I measured before I cut out the pattern and realized I could stick with my standard 32-34 size with no adjustments (except my typical petite adjustment in the armscye). I’m feeling pretty good about that 7 weeks post baby here.
But mostly, I’m looking forward to finally being able to use this pretty knit.
