I have another FO from Fitted Knits ... this time it's the Coquette Lace Tube Top!  Despite a few snags along the way, I'm totally in love with the result. 

I subbed yarn (Classic Elite Premier) and was running woefully short, so I eliminated a lace repeat.  In addition to that mod, I also added waist shaping on every fifth row.  It's pretty loose around the top -- be warned, my fellow small-chested sisters -- so I added crocheted straps to help keep it up. 

When I got to the bottom ribbing, I didn't bother with the eyelets.  And yes, I am missing an eyelet in the top ribbing on the back.  I didn't notice until I was well past that point and decided I didn't care.  Smiley

It took less than a week to complete.
