Grainline Studio Hadley Top (Intermediate)

Out of stock


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. Extra fabric may be needed to match plaids, stripes, or one-way design prints.

    Easy make

    lovely top. I made long sleeved version for the autumn in crepe type fabric. Instructions were really clear and garment pieces went together easily. Sleeves are rather on the long side and interfacing hemline makes it stand out slightly so I may not do this next time. the neckline sits very well and is wide enough to put the top straight over your head so also may not have a fastening next time. Despite these comments I'm looking forward to wearing it in cooler weather and to making another.
