Hadley Top, Grainline Studio, Size 0-18

Hadley Top by Grainline Studio, Paper Sewing Pattern, #11008

GARMENT DETAILS The Hadley is drapey, fluid, and sophisticated. It’s the semi-formal top that you need for 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 length sleeves. View B is sleeveless and features a soft v-neck. Both are subtly geometric as they have centre seams in the front and back as well as a wide hem.

Techniques involved include setting sleeves and applying facings.

The Hadley Top is a Confident Beginner sewing pattern.


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.

Notions: Thread; fusible interfacing; hook and eye.
