The Creative Muse and The Madrid Top

Posted by Susan Liane, The Smuggler's Daughter on 6/7/2017 to Sewing Projects
I purchased the Madrid Top & Pants pattern from The Sewing Workshop booth at the big SewExpo in Puyallup this last March thinking what a great looking shirt this would make.  I'm a big fan of asymmetric hemlines and diagonal features in a garment.  Of course, it went straight into the box of sewing patterns that I have been collecting for years - you know the one.  It is marked "Maybe I will sew this someday." 

And then, a couple of weeks ago I found this cool looking piece of fabric in a thrift store here in Southern Oregon.  It is vintage bark cloth, like maybe something for curtains in the 1950s.  Immediately, I thought it should be paired with this gorgeous green silk - Comice Pear Silk - and remembered the yet unseen Madrid Top. It was one of those sewing moments when you just know that the muse has arrived.  Despite the fact that I have more UFOs in my house then at any other time in my life, I just had to sew this.
