Sewing: Hadley Top
with Natasha Otteson
Saturday, November 18, 12-5 pm
$55 + supplies (pattern included)
The Hadley is drapey, fluid, and sophisticated. It can be both semi-formal and casual, depending on how you like to style it. 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 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.
● Woven fabric with good drape (cottons, cotton-linen blends, linen, double gauze, voile, lawn, rayon, and silk, for example)
● Fusible interfacing
● Hook and eye (if making the pleated back)
● Basic sewing kit
