Step 2: Make Cowl Neck Hood

1. Cut the fabric to 45" x 35". 

2. Fold the fabric in half on the 45" side so it is now 22.5"x35"

3. Sew the two 35" sides together.  

4.  Turn it inside out so the seam is on the inside.  The fabric should look like a tube.

I used lycra as well, it folds weird and does bumps, and it doesnt stay on the head, great tutorial tho
Love this but it does now stay on the head :/
*sew, sorry. Silly predictive text...
These photos are fabulous! I don't see so I apologize if this is a silly question. Can this cowl be made to turn a regular shirt into a cowl neck?
What fabric did you use?
Lycra. Its stretchy and easy to sew!
cotton lycra blends will stay on your head better -- pure lycra is slippery.
I made a hood like this for my Gaga costume last year - another helpful thing to do if it's not staying on your head is to lightly stitch a headband underneath - then party on without worrying about it sliding around : )
