I knit this a few weeks ago, but didn't get all the finishing (weaving in of ends!!!!) done till today. I had also added buttons, but removed them because I prefer the look w/out better. The stitch pattern on the neck edge hides the button holes really well, otherwise I would have kept them on
I modified the pattern by working in the round and knitting through the back of the stitches to keep the drops in place. Be aware that this top is very, very stretchy. The book recommends going down a couple sizes. I did, but I think I probably could have gone even smaller...it's that stretchy!
I used Cascade pima tencel. First time knitting with it and loved it! Thanks for looking
