What to do with Dolly?!
My Mister gave me this t-shirt after a Dolly Parton show last year in Chicago hours before he gave me an engagement ring. Holy gee, does it get any better?
He even knew to buy me the biggest size so I could make it cute.
And since May 8, 2008, it’s been hiding in my closet, waiting for inspiration to strike. I thought I figured it out, with a pattern from a trusted south suburban thrift store, for “Gorgeous tops” as the previous owner wrote.
Her patterns were individually wrapped in plastic bags, as if she had been marketing them for sale? Her notes are all over this one.
I tried one in red knit I thrifted. Pulled it way in since the original pattern was too big. And shortened the sleeves, too, so they were… cappier.
It was just waiting for a bottom hem. Only now I can’t find the darn thing. Or any pictures I may have taken.
I remember, though, it wasn’t the one. The search continues for the Dolly top.
