Did you find that to be a problem?
I did the pattern just as it stated, except for the fact that the first 2 rounds after the armholes were on spare yarn I knit 2 rounds then did the decreasing as the pattern stated instead of decreasing the 2 rounds immediately after the arms were put on spare yarn. Not sure if that would make a big difference since it was only 2 rounds. It is close fitting, closer than I thought, but that's ok I guess, just need to work on tightening my tummy after baby #3-can't tell in the pic, but I have a bit of a gut still. Some people were decreasing or shaping it for a waste too, glad I didn't - I'd thought about it.

That came out great, Julie.

I do miss Village Wools, it was my favorite when living in RR.
