Don't you love it when you can sew a pattern in woven or knit fabric? The Samson top is oversized with dropped shoulders and a boat neck, for a modern, comfortable silhouette. This top hits at the high hip, but you can lengthen or crop it to match your style.

Look for medium-weight wovens or knits, such as linen, shirting, lawn, voile, rayon challis, silk or cotton jersey, ponte, double knit, and French terry.
