Split cowl neck T-shirt - free sewing pattern


In this post I'll show a little tip to create a trendy cowl collar for your T-shirt. It's an easy add-on collar, a split cowl collar with different type of fabric or color to style a little fresh look. You can refashion your old shirts this way, too.

Materials: ( I used )
Cloth ( any type and color you like. I used stretch fabric )
Scissors
Sewing needle
Sewing thread
Sewing machine
Measuring tape & ruler
Tailor's chalk

Note: This cowl neckline is wide with a bit chunky look. However, it's your option to create your own different size and style. For a comfortable and soft cowl collar, I recommend stretch fabric for the collar part.

Use your old T-shirt or follow this diagram to cut a new one. Visit this link for specific measurements:  http://www.mazkwok.com/2013/08/free-sewing-pattern-short-kimono-sleeve.html#more
