I finished knitting this top the other day. Then I had to block it and sew in the elastic. I love it but.........it doesn't fit me! Its just a little too snug around the chest area.



Pattern: Lelah Top (via Ravelry)
Yarn: Moda Vera Cotton Bamboo



I love the lace pattern that is used on this top. The eyelet pattern looks great once you weave the ribbon through. And the great thing with this is you could change the ribbon colour as your mood changes. I think for a night time top it would look nice with a black ribbon.



So all I have to do now is figure out what to do with it since it doesn't fit me. I might make another one for myself but I am not sure yet if I can be bothered.

Mod's Note:
Just a reminder, this pattern is available right here on Craftster!

Thanks guys. I loved the bamboo yarn. It was so easy to knit with and it gave the top a really nice drape when it was finished.
