Oh my the shirt you made is crocheted! I know how to do afgans and even a little tatting how would I venture into the "shirt" end of things?
p.s. thanks for responding that was fast! I have two new grandbabies and would love to make crocheted cloths for them.

Like everyone said, stunning! This is just the kind of thing I think women want now in crochet patterns. I recently read an article about the crochet designer Lily Chin. She said people think you can't get fitted, luxury looking items with crochet. But she thinks if people tried using thinner threads and investing time in one project at a time (I don't know if I know if I can comply!;) that more drape-y, figure flattering garments could be made. This is just beautiful!

OMG! I love this top. It is fabulous and so my style. absolutely fantastic. I do not know how to knit is it hard to learn? I tried once to learn European knitting I started a pair of socks. I still have the one stock..... What is frogging?
 I would love to be able to make something as beautiful as this top. What an inspiration

Good Job!

This is crocheted and not knit.
Frogging is undo or unravel. We said frogging because frog sounds like: rip-it, rip-it, rip-it.

Exactly, it drives me crazy everytime I hear ppl said that crochet is bulking and not flattering at all. Or if they said that the only thing that crochet looks nice is only to make afgan or blanket. They are wrong and this is the example of it!!
