Cowl styling consensus and giveaway winner

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.

  1. Congratulations on your beautiful new son! What a gorgeous little boy. Nice that you are feeling well enough at 7wks PP to get back to sewing and feeling your pre-baby shape return. Glad to hear that bfing is going well too. You are blessed.
