For fabric that has a lot of drape the book suggests to cut the cowl bodice on the bias. In my case and for my fabric that was not a good choice. One side of the bodice is pulling too much up (or down) so the dress is a little bit asymmetric. Next time I will avoid that. Yet, I like the pattern and probably will make one more dress next summer.
Pattern: The cowl neck bodice pattern is paired with dirndl skirt pattern from the book: Sew Many Dresses, Sew Little Time by Tanya Whelan.
