No, I'm not kidding! Yes! It's the peach-colored lacy tank top. :-)

Well, it certainly is pretty! I love the pattern and the color. Do you have a friend who it would fit that you could give it to?

I think you should wear it more like a vest, like over a crisp white shirt, I think it would look great that way!

It's really beautiful work -- I think it's great that you dove right in and made an adult sweater -- I haven't had the guts to do that yet! I agree with gardenmommy, though -- I think that it would look beautiful over a white shirt -- plus, then it could be worn more than just during the warmer weather!!

So pretty! Any chance you can shrink it? I think it would look great with a tank top under it too or as as a layering piece with a shirt as others suggested.

:roflhard: Or just wear it for your S.O. ...mine would love that :eyebrow:

I think you did a great job!! Bravo. I think that if you layered it, it would like nice also.

I think it's GORGEOUS! I agree with layering, too...layering tanks is very popular these days.

I am really surprised at the positive reactions I am receiving here. I thought it looked awful! Well, the stitches looked nice, but as far as the fit... well, that's another story.

I was thinking that maybe I could take the straps in an inch. I'll have my mother sew them in one inch then I can just cut the excess. Has anyone ever done that? I have read in Stephanie Pearl McPhee's books she has done it successfully, so long as the sewn edges are tight!

it can work for some things Jamie...do a search for steeking

steeking? Is that what its called to sew and cut?
