I designed this top because I was looking for something simple and classic, with a modern twist. I wanted something that made me feel confident and well put-together and this turned out to be it.
I love the figure-hugging fit, and the way the armholes are shaped to reveal just a little more shoulder than you might be used to. For me, the roll neck provides the perfect bit of balance to make this crop feel super sophisticated and the two-by-two ribbing is just the finish it needs.
I like mine short, but you can choose to lengthen yours by adding an extra inch or two before you cast off for the beginning of the armhole.
I also think this would look absolutely gorgeous in a stripe – perhaps a breton style for Spring!
