Always making dresses or tunics, I was in desperate need for some separates, mainly tops. Plus I can’t stretch my abilities if I am always making similar things and don’t mix it up a bit.
Scrolling through Instagram, I came across Seamworks Hayden. Seamworks itself has a good variety of basic patterns and the Hayden does not disappoint. Its Princess seam shape is really flattering, especially with big boobs, giving a slimming shape.
So how did it sew?
Using a woven fabric, a quite thick woven, was probably not the best idea. I definitely need to try a fabric with a bit more give, or a woven with more flex.
The make itself was simple, I really likes how the band at the bottom connected and finished off the top. Its also available in a wide range of sizes, so is a good staple for all sewers.
I am looking forward to finding a good fabric for these, the photos on their site show it in a beautiful light fabric.
They really sell it on their site with :
You’re on the perfect summer road trip — sun shining through rolled down windows, sipping a chocolate shake, singing along to your favorite songs on a freshly pressed playlist. You’re going to be in the car for quite awhile, and those long miles between road side attractions call for comfy threads that not only travel well, but look great in all those memorable photos you’ll be taking. That’s why Hayden’s easy fit and stylish silhouette make it the perfect companion for all of your on-the-go activities.
Hoe poetic, but I totally get it. It is the perfect road trip top… in the right fabric.
I think now, this will be in my next summer wardrobe, I will revisit it next year.
