Hi
I would like for someone to see if they see the facings for the Blouses, and Dresses for when you are wanting to see the cowl collars. I do not see a cowl in the non activated program at all.
Just something I see when still playing with the program.

Easy to miss Patricia! The facing is" cut on" to the drape. It's that curved portion at the top. (I personally cut mine at an angle rather than a curve.) They seem to stay tucked in better on me that way. And you can see the back facing in the full screen view. There is not a tab for facings.

When you click on collar the back facing shows.

Thanks for that description. I was just reading up on the cowl neck pattern when I came across this old thread. The comment about the facings gave me an "ah ha" moment in understanding the cowl structure.

I must say, I'm a fan of the inset cowl. It is a piece inserted into a v-neck and creates its own facing. I've made 3 of them so far and will probably make more. I do find that the direction line on the inset is going the wrong direction, so I just do what makes sense to me. I highly recommend it. I use a 7-8" neck depth, 1" neck width. I've used stretch jersey and ITY knits. After sewing on the back neck facing, I topstitch 1/4" away then trim close to the second stitching so I don't have a floppy neck facing. This makes a very nice subtle cowl drape about 5" deep.

Hadn't noticed/tried the Inset Cowl before. Definitely will do that.

I was going to make the PMK Pleated Cowl style but the pattern called for putting the pattern on the "bias" even though I'm dealing with a knit fabric (albeit not very stretchy) and it also has horizontal stripes. I was surprised the PMK pattern called for "bias" even though in another posting Karen reminds us that there isn't technically a bias to knits. Would it work to go ahead and make the Pleated Cowl top "on grain" in a stable knit?

I just think of the cowl placed in the direction of greatest stretch--DOGS-- (bias in woven, horizontal in knits). The inset cowl gives a more controlled cowl...like a little bib--with a flattering "v".

Thanks. I will give that a try.
