Hadley Top Pattern
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.
Sizes (size guide): 0-18

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 quite a bit of drape. Extra fabric may be needed to match plaids, stripes, or one-way print designs.
