Hadley Top-meets twice
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 they 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.
Designed for the intermediate stitcher ready to set sleeves and learn some professional finishing techniques.
