Ooh I started making this yesterday. It's the very first time I've used a crochet pattern, but it seems to be working out ok. (I'm pretty familiar with knitting patterns, which probably helps). The yarn I'm using is South West Trading Company Bamboo in  a pink so bright my camera can't really capture it.

Ysolda, I am so happy to see yours becasue that's the exact yarn I am hoping to use. Was it easy to get gauge?

I'm using a smaller hook (4mm) but the gauge is perfect Smiley I tried knitting with this yarn a few times but I much prefer crocheting with it.

I plan on making this...  but I'm not sure on sizing.  I have about a 34 inch bust; the sizes are for 27 or 36.  all the ones I'm seeing on people look a little large and I want mine to be tighter fitting.  any recommendations?

I'm a 34" bust and I'm making the medium. I haven't finished yet but it looks like it's going to fit ok. The small would definitely be too small, but maybe if you want it to look tighter you should choose a yarn with more elasticity than the suggested cotton, then it might be clingy rather than drapey.

You could do the 36" version with a slightly tighter gauge.  You can also go down a hook size below the bust to bring it in a bit.
