knittingsolo - hahahaha, funny you should ask, read the fishtail skirt thread http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=26658.0
But it's actually quite self sizing if you take measurement above the bust and then add a couple of lace repeats to the bottom if you want more flare to it.
Illana 24 That's amazing yarn! It came out great!
Karenie, if you can figure out the lace cap sleeves, OMG, please try that!!!! I would love to see and know how!

This pattern is great and so easy! It only took me three evenings; I think something around 5 hours including froggin ones and sewing!

You can see some phottos on my blog.
HelenaJane, I'm going to send you a pic once I get a decent one  Grin

 Sad
just a note... If this is anyone elses first project on LONG circular needles... BE CAREFUL and don't twist those first stitches.. AND BE SURE they aren't twisted.  If they are, you will get a Mobius Strip and not a shirt. Sad Sad

I got to the second round of the lace pattern and realized that my work was twisted. FROGGY FROGGY....
bleh.
Maybe I should stick to sewing. Wink
I hope to restart this project tonight.

I tell ya, I must be the most UNself-conscious heavy person out there.  I'm definitely plus sized, and I'm definitely making this top!  For myself! Cheesy   Right after I finish Tempting and Soleil from Knitty.   I hate typical "plus size" patterns.   This one is gorgeous, and I'm pretty sure will be flattering on a larger figure.  I have a similar top, except without the lace bottom, that I bought, and it's cute.

Excellent pattern!  I'll just make my hubby do the math.  LOL

hey niney - i don't see why sport weight and 6 or 7 size needles wouldn't work. you'll just have to figure out your gauge and how many repeats of the lace you'll need so that it fits you. i actually think the lace might be even prettier on a smaller gauge. please post pics!
