madelyn is a self-taught seamstress, she began with a sewing machine she bought off craigslist & only instructions on how to thread it. with an arsenal of youtube videos & a stubborn dedication to experimentation, she slowly learned to sew simply by pushing fabric through her machine to see what would happen. after years of many mistakes & the wisdom of a few colleagues, she honed her craft to create the unique pieces you see today. 

all photography, writing & design on this website is the work of madelyn hadel, unless otherwise noted.
