Stay Home & Sew: 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 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.

Fabric Options: Note, this kit will include fabric to make the tank version of this top, not the long-sleeved variation.

  • Charcoal Sandwashed Rayon - This silky soft, rayon has a great, cool hand with just the right amount of body for the fall. The charcoal color is mottled, adding a cool visual element to an otherwise solidly colored fabric. To us, it's reminiscent of a blackboard that has been erased by not washed, and the variation in tones elevates it beyond a simple black top.
  • Plum Viscose Linen Silky Noil - Our love affair with the linen-viscose silky noil knows no bounds. With so many rich colorways to choose from, it seems that there's no end to how many ways we can use it and achieve stunning results. In a deep plum, this color way will make the Hadley Top (and your heart) sing. A gorgeous fabric option
  • Grey Jade Pebble Crepe - With a unique, pebbly texture, this fabric combines a cool light green color with lots of depth. The drape is semi-fluid but the medium weight means that it has nice structure to it as well. If you're looking to make a slightly dressed up version of this top (but one that would still look great with jeans), this fabric is an amazing choice.

Also in this box: Matching thread, fusible interfacing, and a sewing machine needle
