Morrigan; Dragon Age Origins Cowl Tutorial

The Cowl

2785442
Firstly I followed THIS tutorial on how to make a draped cowl neckline.

Now when I did this, I followed their instructions of lowering the neck line 3-5 inches, ignoring what I actually wanted for my own project.
This resulted in Image 1 & 2 <——-

For the 3rd and 4th Images, I ended up lowering the neckline a further 13 – 14 inches, this I was far happier with.

I used this tutorial for the hood pattern
I just attached it to the top pieces of the cowl, pretty straightforward.

After lining the cowl,
I decided that I wasn’t happy with the colour choice at all, but i didnt want to have to remake the entire thing – so I dyed it.

I used iPoly dye in Magenta to get the colour I wanted. Because the purple original fabric was quite dark and heavy, I opted for Magenta over the accurate dark red as it would have come out too dark on the already darkly dyed fabric.

After finally dying it, I still wasnt happy with the fit. So I unpicked the top sections that the hood was attached to and cut it down about 5cm, so it would be more flattering on me.
