I just finished this top and I love it!
I used Patons Grace cotton yarn and size 6 needles to get guage.
The pattern is here.



I haven't sewn in any beads to the hem, but I may in the future if I find some that I like. I like the more casual look it has without the beads, so I'm undecided.

I added a few modifications, including changing the positioning of the bodice seam on the front, adding short rows so it would hang lower in the back than the front, and slimming the pattern overall by a couple inches.
I've put some more details on the problems I had and my modifications on my blog here

Oh, I love it. The brown is a nice surprise color for this cami- it creates a kind of "natural sexy" vibe. Isn't Paton's Grace great? It's one of my favorite craft-store yarns.

Beautiful!  I have some Grace in my stash, maybe I'll use it for this instead of what I had intended it for.

This is wonderful. I almost think it doesn't even need the beads!

That's beautiful!  I really like your modifications - great choices.  I agree, though - it doesn't need beads.
