Stay Home & Sew: Collins Top

The Collins top is a loose-fitting trapeze-shaped top designed for woven fabrics. It is A-line in shape, perfect for hot summer days. It features a round neck, panel lines, a high-low hem and a centre-back opening, with a button and loop closure. Due to its length, the Collins top is the perfect top to pair with skirts or trousers that sit on or above the natural waist. View A includes a three-piece raglan sleeve designed with extra volume, which creates a fun and interesting shape. The neckline is finished with bias binding. View B is sleeveless and the neckline and armholes are finished with an all-in-one facing for a really clean and professional finish.

In this box, you will receive the pattern, fabric of your choice and all the notions to match your fabric

Pattern: Collins Top from In the Folds

Skill Level: Confident Beginner

What you should know (or desire to learn): Sewing bias tape finish, sewing raglan sleeves, attaching a button

Fabric Options: 

  • Rose Gold Silky Noil- With a slight nubbly texture, this silky noil is lightweight, with a soft drape and even softer hand. And the color? We're smitten with this peachy pink, somewhere between a hipster pink, a blush pink, and a rose gold. Whatever it is, we love it and can't wait to make a top with it.
  • Black Viscose Dobby Swiss Dot: With the look of swiss dot, but without the sheerness, this viscose fabric is simple elegance. Lightweight, with a tiny bit of translucence in light, this fabric will transform into top you wear with everything!

    Also in this box: Matching thread, 3 yards bias tape, one button, and a sewing machine needle
