The Covil is Winsome’s longest running, most popular garment. When created in a lightweight fabric with soft drape, this style can be transitional from dress to tunic to top. The process of sewing the Covil incorporates seams, turned hems, bias facing finishes and unique placket detail.
The pattern includes sizes XS-XXXL and detailed instructions for cutting and sewing as well as a Winsome label to sew into your garment.
