This is my botched and altered version of the Honeymoon Cami from knitty.com. It was too big even after i measured and did a correct gauge swatch before beginning so i added the little ruffly border around the neck to sinch it in a little and it seemed to work out ok. I think i'd like to try this pattern again in the smaller size to see if it would fit a little better. I used Patons Grace in thhis pretty rasberry color and was really happy working with that yarn.

Looks pretty, even though you're half obscured by the flash! I like the color you did it in better than the off-white they had it in the pattern. Nice job!

I think it turned out really nice!  I actually like the ruffly trim, I think it adds a pretty, feminine touch!  Cheesy

Ya, mine came out way too big too. Even after i swatched it. I mean, it fits OKAY, but I'd rather give it to a bigger person. ACtually I'm still not completely done, but done enough. Good job Wink

I did the honeymoon cami and it came out a little big, as well.  I used a pima cotton/tencel blend and I plan to shrink it a bit in the dryer, but I haven't done it yet for fear of the cami getting too short!  I knitted a swatch and ran it through the washer/dryer and it came out beautifully - the stitches all evened out and are a little more snug together, but it shrinks more top to bottom than side to side and I don't like to show stomach!
I really like the ruffly detail, that's a nice touch!

Thanks! Yeah, my camera is hard to adjust when it comes to the timer function. I did the best i could. Personally i would never knit myself anything in white or offwhite as i seem to be the queen of spills!
