I kinda need some help. I saw a sweater in the JCrew catalog (http://www.jcrew.com/catalog/product.jhtml?id=prod80346451&catId=cat120143) this weekend that I absolutey fell in love with.
Does anyone know of a good pattern that i can base my sweater off of?

Here's what I'm thinking:
A top down raglan sweater with some shaping.
I would have to leave a gaping hole in the front for the ribbing that i have to add later on. maybe make the ribbing 4 inches wide?
Oh. and I would totally leave off the button. She doesn't really have any meat on her and look at how that button pulls!

What do you all think?

ANY and ALL input is welcome!

Here is a shawl-collared pullover that kind of looks similar to the neck area. I don't think it would be too difficult to make the neck opening a little lower, add a hood and make the bottom more fitted with ribbing.

Here is another shawl-collar style from someone's blog as well...
