Classic comfort and sporty elegance meet in a perfect partnership to bring you this pattern. The extremely flattering ladies cowl neck top sewing pattern is the Josephine Jumper.
Josephine is beautifully-draped and has a crisscross collar that cowls dramatically in the front. This is a simple garment with wow factor for days!
The best bit? Like with most RP patterns, you can dress Josephine up or down for casual chic or fancy shmancy events based on fabric choice and styling options. A cozy jersey knit will give you a wonderful jumper for lazing about, while a lurex knit with a metallic fleck with give you a comfortable, but more formal garment.
You can use almost any weight knit fabric for your jumper but you will achieve the best results and fit with a light- to medium-weight fabric. Great examples are sweater knits, medium-weight jersey, viscose, ponte, scuba, stretch velour, and stretch French terry. A lighter-weight fabric will drape more than a structured fabric. Do not use a woven fabric for your Josephine; it won’t sit or fit correctly and will be a heartbreaking waste of fabric and time!
