Here is the finished halter.  It fit and covered boobage.  Next time I will change needle size to create shaping in the waist and make it a bit smaller.  Less stiches should work.  I did crochet around the top  to keep flat.  I will make another one for sure!

Oh, how nifty, alaskagirl.

I just adore the colors.

I'm sort of a slow knitter(Actually I just don't have the time.), but how long do you think it will take me to whip one of these up, if I knit non-stop? I suddenly decided that all my clothes are just not nifty enough, and I need a new top.(That's just an excuse Wink)

Umm well, when I made the second one (the longer, cuter one) it took 2 days, and one of those I was sick and home from school.  I bet if you knit non-stop you could make it in less than a day, but I wouldn't try it unless I was sick again.  Wink

fab! if youre making them to sell, it's just a personal thing, but i prefer the longer body in the 2nd top (although it takes more time and yarn).

I too am a slow knitter.  It took me about 1 day and 2 evenings.  It was my first attempt at intarsia knitting. The way I will take in the waist is to do 5 in. on the # 13 and switch to a #11 for about 5 more inches.  Then switch back to the 13.  I would less stiches to get a snugger fit.  I am starting a new one with 90 stiches. Might make it a tank top? Wink

u know lemonadelemonade my belly is the same way it is flat until I drink or eat alot and it pooches out too it doesn't go back down until the next day. Alot of ppl thought I was pregnant one day and I was like, "naw I had my baby already" she is two almost three now. Even though I am still a beginner at this knitting that looks ultra easy to make and I want to make some for summer for me and my daughter. I'm just going to have to learn how to make the top part a little bigger seeing as my boobies are not little lol. I may have a small figure but the chest isn't.

There will always be people who say mean words  because you are different, and sometimes their minds cannot be changed. There are many more people who do not judge others based on how they look or where they are from. THOSE are the people whose WORDS truly matter.

Hey, I love this halter.  My girls wouldn't fit in it but I want to make it for a less endowed friend of mine, I want to know which sized needles you used.
