Cowl neckline top


Let's draft together the pattern for this halter neck top. It features a cowl neckline and open back, held on center back by a small chain.

The perfect fabric is something light to medium weight, with a good drape.

To draft the pattern, start from a basic block with darts.

Step 1

Trace a copy of your block with darts. Erase waist ones and make back and front all the way the same measurement from bust to hips.

Draw a slash line from bust point perpendicular to center front. Cut through the line to close shoulder dart.

Step 2

Get back and front: match them at high shoulder point and overlap shoulder line by 3cm at outer edge.

Draw the halter neckline from center back.

Step 3

Separate back and front and draw the back neckline.
