The biggest problem I have had with cowl patterns is that the there is not enough shoulder—the garment always ends up showing my bra straps, which incenses me. There seems to be just enough shoulder on this top, but I don't think the cowl looks that good. Maybe a cowl doesn't suit my figure like I thought it did???
To ensure I would have enough garment at the shoulders, I made a smaller size to fit my underbust (10) and made a full bust adjustment. When I stand differently, you can see the weirdness more accurately.
