Two of two

Cowl Neck Refashion Number Two -- or should I say the final one as I only had two cowl neck tops in the fall/winter clothes tubs. To recap: I can't recall wearing either at the start of the year so that means refashion or give away.

I'm going through a tough love episode with my clothes these days....

Gotta say, it was a messy unpicking, but my new Janome 9200D neatened up those edges in no time flat! 

I took a two inch strip from the removed cowl

then stitched it to the raw edge of the neckline. I messed around with a few ideas but settled on this

nice neat turned under and handstitched option. I don't lack for cool necklaces to wear with it

but last month's efforts to empty my knits and jersey tubs will work as well (plus keep my neck warm).

Personally, I like the cowl neck, but if you don't wear it, what's the point, right? Sounds like you'll get a lot more use out of the top this way. Good on ya!
