Float On Top Virtual Workshop


Nothing acrobatic about this trapeze top – simple, elegant, and above all, fit to perfection.

Slim at the bust and extra wide at the hem, this little number has an undeniably beautiful construction. A classy keyhole opening allows for a comfortably close fit crew neck and princess seams offer some elongating vertical action to this confident beginner-level sewing pattern.
