I’m excited to be sharing my next make with you, the Hadley top by Grainline Studios. Harts Fabrics was so kind to provide the pattern and fabric for this post and I think they’re the perfect match!
Let me preface this by saying, I’m going to try to contain my excitement and not type in all caps.
A couple weeks ago I saw Caroline posted in her Sew Caroline Facebook group looking for a few pre-testers for the Primrose Peplum. I thought about it for 0.2 seconds and signed right up. I had never tested a pattern before, but it has been something I’ve wanted to do. I love Caroline’s patterns so I would have been silly not to sign up! When I got the email from her I was so excited that I immediately started planning different versions I wanted to make. I remember seeing the sneak peak she posted last fall and thinking that I’ve been waiting for a pattern just like this. This was such a fun experience to play even the smallest role in the process and it’s one I hope to have again!
Flexibility and adaptability have been key words for me this month…mainly because of my indecisiveness and trying to get a ton of projects crammed in before we see family. At first it seemed like this month was just dragging, but just like that it’s now February. That means
a few most of my January goals were not met. I think I overestimate how much sewing time I’ll actually be able to have. However, I’m happy with what I’ve been able to accomplish this month and I’m already excited about sharing a couple things with you next month!
