Grainline Studio : Hadley Top
The Hadley is drapey, fluid, and sophisticated. It's the semi-formal top that you need to wear to work or to throw 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 center seams in front and back as well as a wide hem.
Techniques involved include sewing straight and curved seams, setting sleeves, darts, pleating, and applying facings.
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.
