In La Traviata, the beguiling Violetta knows she can have any man she wants and dismisses Alfredo’s early confessions of love as madness.
Her lace-trimmed shell is worked in two identical pieces, forming a V-neck in the front and back. The armholes and v-neck are self-finishing.
This versatile top can be worn over a shirt for daytime wear or be transformed into a seductive camisole for evening.
