The Girls with Big Boobs Knitalong.  Love it.

I would love to participate, but I think the ladies and I (we're a DD family) will have to sit and watch, since I'm on winter-wear hiatus. What I really really want more than anything these days is for someone to convince me I can make that hott "boobholder" dealie in a size that will actually...well...h old 'em. Y'know?

thanks for starting this thread!!

I'm making a Girls With Big Boobs tank top right now & it's terrifying!  I don't want to frog the whole front if I don't size it just right...

I think that the short rows approach is the right way to go, though.  I took the "shapely tank" free pattern from White Lies Designs (http://www.whiteliesdesigns.com/patterns/lpullovers/fbcprint.html) and I'm using it as a guide for the armscyes and bust shaping only.  I'm at the end of doing the short row bust shaping and so far I'm pleased with what I see, but I haven't had the opportunity to hold it up to my friend to see if the sizing is "just right".

This free pattern is great because it's stockinette only and you can use it like a palette to do other stuff.

And the pattern author did a great tute on short rows in knitty here: http://knitty.com/ISSUEsummer03/FEATbonnetric.html

There's also this website about sizing knitting patterns for different shapes, but I haven't checked it out thoroughly:

Hooray for the boobalage knitting support!

I'm enamored of the Lace Leaf Pullover in the Summer Issue of Interweave Knits.  Gotta love Teva Durham.

It looks fabulous on the waif in the photo, but I think I can visualize it on me, too.  If I can find a suitable yarn substitution for the $13.95 a skein Filtes King Van Dyck, I'm going to make it.  And if it looks horrid on me, my Mom could carry it off.
