5oo4 Camilla Cowl

Some days, I’m reminded just how lucky I am. I have fallen into this amazing world of PDF sewing where I’ve found passion, friendships, a job, an outlet. Basically everything I could want. Part of that is sewing up some promos for different designers. Whether I’ve applied for a position or the designer (or their team) reaches out to ask me to be a part of something, it gives me all the warm fuzzies to be chosen.

I get to try new things and recommend them to people. I do my best to write up my honest opinion of every test, promo, fabric, plain old sew, whatever it is I’m working on. And I have to say, this top does NOT get enough love!!! I don’t see it a lot on the 5oo4 fan page. I don’t see it in the PDF sewing groups. WHY?! I finally tried it and am COMPLETELY IN LOVE!!!

Cowl tops are one of my favorite styles. They are easy to wear. They don’t choke me with high necks while still allowing me some modesty. (These girls can be hard to hide!) So, I was super excited to try this Camilla Cowl. But to add to this lovely style, there are SO MANY OPTIONS!!! There are four lengths, 6 sleeve lengths with extra cuff options, pockets, ruching, and maternity options!! To go with that maternity option, I feel like it would be super easy for nursing!

With all of these options, it is also a really simple sew and so fast!! Once I picked out fabric and thread (thanks Vicki and Mom), it was finished in about an hour. Which is my favorite kind of project!

I chose to do a tunic length, with cuffed elbow sleeves (my favorite length for work!).  Then I added super light ruching.  Just enough to pull up the hem a bit and add a little, tiny, itsy bit of blousing over the tummy.

So, I’m highly recommending this one to every person! Pick up your copy and let me know how it goes!!

Take a moment for you today.

I was given this pattern for free to sew up for promotion.  The thoughts and evaluations are my own opinions.  I always appreciate free patterns, but I’m no liar.  πŸ™‚ 

This post contains various affiliate links.  Purchasing patterns using these links does not cost my readers more, but the designer does provide me with a small commission from any sales.  This commission helps to fund my fabric addiction and is greatly appreciated.

  1. I love this color on you! I love the subtle striping. More though, I love the shirt. It looks so comfortable but I can see how you can pair it with dress pants or skirt, add a jacket and you’ve got a professional outfit. At the same time, your casual look is beautiful. If it took an hour for you – the super woman of sewing – than probably two for someone who does basics like me. I’ve never worn a cowl but this one makes me want to try it.
