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.

Please note that our online shop currently only sells fabric, elastic, and other products that are cut to measure in full metres. Its a Shopify thing and as soon as we find an awesome workaround you can count on us to make that magic happen. 

Buying fabric? Measure twice so that we can cut once! Review your pattern. Check the unit of measure (we go by meters). Add a bit of length to factor in shrinkage during prewashing. 

Buying patterns? Pattern size ranges can vary depending on the pattern, designer, and style. Review the pattern closely before purchase and check your own measurements against the pattern specifications.

Picking colours? RICK RACK does our best to accurately represent all products and colours but colours may appear different between device screens.
