I finished this a while ago, hoping to debut it with the advent of spring. Unfortunately, as spring has not been particularly forthcoming to the city this year, I got impatient and decided to debut it here.

I loved this pattern--I hate sewing but doing the cups separately and then piecing it all together allowed for a really fabulous fit. I substituted a lace pattern for the main body to avoid getting bored.
Now if only the weather would permit me to wear it...

Thank you all for your kind comments!
I used a lace pattern called "Falling Leaves" from The Encyclopedia of Knitting. Since it's just a rectangle you're making, it's easy to substitute any lace pattern that catches your fancy.
There are a bunch of beautiful ones at http://www.knitting-and.com/knitting/patterns-lace.htm
