Hadley Top in Linen and Kochi in Art Deco Medallion





Sew Expo was the end of February, not quite five months ago, yet seems so long ago.  So many things have changes but this outfit is still as good now as in February. 


 I sewed this up for Style Maker Fabrics' booth at Sew Expo, here it is hanging out in the booth


The outer layer is the Paper Cut Kochi Jacket, a beautiful style and easy to sew.  Perfect for summer layers, inside and outside transition, Cooler nights, beach cover up, you name it.  The fabric is a statement piece, Art Decco Medallion.  


Just take a look at the back



I cut the back first to get this medallion in the center, and it is in the center back and straight, just my pose/posture.  Here is the straight back, color just not as good.

Back to the cutting, since I did the back first and centered the medallion, I was sweating it to get the rest of the jacket from the fabric.  Remember this was for expo and had to be mailed back, not much extra time.   I made it with nothing left to spare - whew!  

It is a great piece and this fabric is one I love, bright colors, graphic print, just is so good



The top is the Grainline Studio Hadley Top, which is an interesting pattern sizing relationship for me.  I made the first Hadley too small and Michelle surprised me with more fabric to try again. I made it bigger and  it was better but still tight under the arms and the fit not quite right   For this Royal Linen one I went bigger and it was way  too big, which I have fixed the sizing since the return from Expo.  One of these days I will get the Hadley sizing correct.  I will take any and all suggestions.  

I think I will sit here and remember all the fun at Expo and enjoy my summer garment.  



We added a slideto our swingset for the grands and we copied one of our daughter's .... building a staircase instead of ladder.  It is easier for them to climb, especially the younger ones and turns out a good place for blog photos! Happy sewing all.

  1. I could not get the Hadley pattern to work for me, and I was disappointed because I really liked the style. I thought it was my narrow chest/back, but the fit was way off for my body.

  2. I also had poor luck with the Hadley pattern. Ended up giving the top to a friend because it was just huge on me. Would like to give it a second chance but hesitant about taking the time. I wish you had shown us a photo of just the Hadley without the jacket on. Looks great on you!
