Inner 50's Housewife Seeks Inspiration

I’m 95% sure I was born in the wrong era. Hiding inside my average Gen-Y body is a 50’s housewife and she’s just dying to get out. This top is the perfect transitional piece – modern enough for the daily grind yet vintage enough to help calm my inner-beast. I have a few meters of 50’s barkcloth at home in a very similar print (substitute green and turquoise for brown and orange). This top has given me the inspiration to put my sewing skills and my tiny Janome to the test and try to recreate this piece… Updates to follow.
