I think it *is* too tight, at least in my view... the design seems like it would have to skim the body (if even that) to stay down. I'd personally try to use a weighty yarn to help it do that. I like the ribbing, as it's both flattering's def an integral part of the design to me.

OTN: Eyelet Chemise in Handmaiden Sea Silk (colorway: Midnight). Still. And a purple Donegal Tweed set of fingerless mitts, to try out my new Hiya Hiya interchangeable needles.

Latest FO: A shrug for an Anthropologie swap in beautiful Casbah sock yarn, in Cedar, a dark green semi-solid, my own pattern. Also a quick Noro Silk Garden neckwarmer for my friend Aideen, in a vine lace pattern.
