The Hadley is drapey, fluid, and sophisticated. It’s the semi-formal top that you need to wear to work or to throw on over your jeans for a night out. View A has a jewel neck, a pleat at the back neckline, and bracelet lengths sleeves. View B is sleeveless and features a soft v-neck. Both are subtly geometric as the have center seams in the front and back as well as a wide hem.
Techniques involved include sewing straight and curved seams, setting sleeves, darts, pleating, and applying facings.
Suggested Fabrics: Light to medium weight fabrics such as cotton, linen, silk, rayon, voile or lawn. Avoid fabrics that are too stiff since this top requires a bit of drape. We'd love to see this made up in the brushstroke crepe or floral crepe...plus you can check out Instagram for our tencel version! Drape is definitely the name of the game for this pattern. Extra fabric may be needed to match plaids, stripes, or one-way design prints.
Notions: Thread, hook & eye
