I started doing the Cold Sheep program — yarn fasting, basically — at the start of this month. My goal is to save up enough money to buy this dress.
This is hardly the first thing in my queue and I’m still mulling it over. My main concern is that it would become a closet orphan, and that I’d only ever wear it under this dress. Given my advanced age, I’m also worried that I’d look like “mutton dressed as lamb” if I were to wear it with anything else. (Even during my lame attempt at a goth phase I never had a net shirt.)
I know I’d like a lacy pullover to wear with that dress, but thus far Ravelry has turned up some near-misses. This one comes the closest to what I’m looking for, but I lack Jett’s ability to rewrite the pattern into a top-down lace top. (Also, what drug was Amy Herzog on that she thought seaming a lace top was a good idea?)
So, reader(s)…what do you advise? Should I make Stonecutter, or is there another pattern for a lacy pullover that might be more versatile? I’m all ears (and all Addis)!
