Here is my entry - I based the body on my favorite fitting T-shirt, but added an almost indecently low-cut neckline.  This is probably the best article of clothing I've made that I've designed myself, and I think its going to get a lot of use.



Knit in Millefili Fine 100% Egyptian cotton that I snagged off of Elann, its an extremely comfortable and airy T-shirt, but with some girly picot edging and scallops because I can never resist girly embellishments on my clothes.  I love the colors of this yarn - they are so bright and vibrant, especially the green.  If only it would get warm and sunny here so I can actually wear it!

Super cute! I absolutely love the scalloped sleeves. Are the darts sewn?

No, I knitted it from the bottom up and just made increases for the darts.  It was my first experiment with them and I am quite happy with the outcome, I was a little skeptical while I was knitting but the fit is wonderful.
