America’s Sweetheart.

Springtime in Nashville, 1967. She was singing that day at the Ryman (before it was redone). Scent of honeysuckle outside.

I can still feel it: her voice cutting clear through those parts of me that didn’t yet understand the soul in country music.

She wore a relaxed, feminine plaid shirt like this one. Didn’t like to look like she was trying too hard (no shoes, either).

Last year, at a little estate sale in Hillsboro, I saw this and remembered. (Luckily, the hipsters there were more interested in the locally sourced burritos.)

What do you remember about that spring?

America’s Sweetheart Shirt (No. 4237). Yarn-dyed plaid in 100% cotton. Pointed collar.

Wear the sleeves rolled up and imagine yourself strumming the autoharp onstage. Made in India.

Small in the shoulders
I ordered an 8, which is my usual size, but it was so small around the shoulders I could barely get into it, let alone out of it. So I returned it for a 10, which fits fine, but seems to be webbed below the armpit, or have very low armpits or something. So if you are at all broad-shouldered for your chest width, or if you like to sometimes raise your arms above shoulder height, either order 2 sizes up or find something else. The shirt is beautiful but very thin and small for the size. I loved the shirt while it lasted, but it's not for anyone who is fully and exuberantly mobile. I jumped off my horse with my hands on the cantle/horn as usual, and it tore in both armpits. Unfortunately I cannot order a 12 in the blue anymore, but I wish I had returned the 10 as well...

I disagree
I found it ran very small. Generally, J. Petermans clothes run a bit large so I bought my correct size and it was way too small. Im returning it.

This is a nice lightweight shirt.
i bought it in pink. The shirt runs true to size. It is very comfortable and very pretty. I wear it with jeans or a denim skirt. It would dress up other skirts too. Recommended.
