The Collins top is a loose-fitting trapeze-shaped top designed for woven fabrics. It is a silhouette 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.
The Collins top is compatible with a range of different fabrics. Your choice of fabric will dictate the silhouette you achieve. Consider using light to mid-weight fabrics such as: linen, linen blends, cotton, gauze or chambray. For a softer silhouette, consider sateen, silk, or rayon. Be careful if you are a beginner though, as these fabrics are a little trickier to sew. Softer fabrics will drape over the bust and create soft flowy sleeves, while stiffer fabrics will create a more voluminous and structured silhouette.
