The Hadley Top, by Grainline Studio is drapey, fluid, and sophisticated. It’s a really versatile, semi-formal style that you can wear both to work or throw on with your jeans for a night out.

View A has a round neck, an interesting pleat detail at the back neckline, and long 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 straight and curved seams, setting sleeves, darts, pleating and applying facings.

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.

Suitable for advanced beginners.
