In The Folds Collins Top Pattern


Add to Cart

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.

Fabrics: light to mid-weight fabrics such as linen, linen blends, cotton, gauze or chambray. For a softer silhouette, consider sateen, silk, or viscose (rayon). Softer fabrics will drape over the bust (and create soft flowy sleeves), while stiffer fabrics will create a more voluminous and structured silhouette. Due to the number of panels in the Collins top, it is a great pattern to use to experiment with colour blocking and stripe direction.
