Thanks knitting nyxxie and athena404 (oops I didn't notice that the link was posted before). 

Dur30cat, after seeing the original Lily Chen paatern, I like your version so, so much better. 

Thanks! I have some commentaries on my blog entry that mentions some modifications I made to the pattern so hopefully that helps!

*whimpers gently*

i have had this pattern saved for SOOOOOO long. i can knit like mad, but single chain crochet is challenge enough. every few days i take out this pattern, look at the mysterious abrreviated instructions, sigh and put it away again...

i am sooooo jealous. oh, and i love the grey colour. much more practical than white.

eta: it would be absolutely mad of me to try this as my first crochet project, wouldn't it?

I really want to make this pattern too I can crochet not that well though. I have made things before but not something to wear really. That is why want to use a cheaper yarn to make it out of! I just don't know which one would be good to use. I want it to be cheaper to make but not so cheap that it isn't worth my time.

The rows and rows of instructions makes for quite a bit of happy frogging even for me -- but largely because I wanted it to be really fitting so there's a lot of trying on and re-calculating to make it work once I figured out the pattern repeats.

I would suggest that you consider starting with a simple halter neck or tank top pattern that has some shaping to get you familar with the instructions before you get onto this. Saves you a lot of unnecessary grief. Smiley

You did what most of us on the crochet board can only dream of doing.  You're basically my new hero.  Congratulations on churning out one fine piece of crochet (and inspiring as well as making all of us feel incompetent!)

I had a look at the original pattern, and I have to say that yours looks much, much better. Now, if only I had a figure like yours...

Oops.. I really hope I didn't come out that way -- making others feel bad. I am sure all of you could crochet as well as long as you do test swatches and love doing the maths. Smiley

Thanks... I loved fitted garments as I find they are the best way to flatter your figures. I just finished some knitted garments...(threads can be found http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=122682.msg1181925#msg1181925 and http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=122185.0;all.)
