Someone please check out anthropologie.com: knit top called "roses in the rain". How would one do the tuck at the neckline of this T? It is really a unique look.

Here is the top:



This link may or may not work.

It looks like half the front is cut as a cowl tee, and the other half as a plain tee. The cowl part is longer than the plain part, and it is pleated and sewn into the other side in a little dart. Not explaining very well and I can't draw, but perhaps that helps a little, if you can look at the shape of a cowl tee versus a regular. I am partial to Simplicity 2696 as a cut on cowl top, now OOP but widely available for cheap, but there are tons of patterns in this vein.

It looks like a draped cowl on one side, and a regular neckline on the other side with the darts rotated into the neckline and tucked under the normal side.

draping a cowl.

dart manipulation

HOpefully this will go to the dart section and not the top of the section.

ThinkGeek: "E-mail has been around since before computers. At first, e-mails were written on rocks and thrown at neighbors. CC-ing a rock e-mail could be dangerous for an entire village. Then, e-mails were written on paper and put in weird paper things called envelopes and the postal system delivered them. This was slow. Finally, e-mail as we know it came around."
