The name of this easy to wear top was inspired by the Dutch “muizetrappetje”, a kindergarten technique most of you learned long ago…

A geometric waterfall of simple folds runs down this simple vintage-inspired top. In red, perfect for your mother-in-law’s Christmas dinner. In a more subdued color, great for the office.

The scoop neckline is embellished with geometric filet crochet, to complement the waterfall ruffle down the front.
