Does anyone have any idea where a non-crocheter could purchase something like this? I see nothing similar on Etsy, and a google search for "crochet top handmade" turned up zilch. Pleas help; there's no way I'm ever gonna learn to make a crocheted top!

It's gorgeous!
I recognize the top and front part of Berocco's free pattern Celia (for anybody interested in the stitch).

Here is a similar pattern http://www.berroco.com/exclusives/celia/celia.html  It is on the Berroco free patterns website.The back is closed and the bottom trim is different. I made it and it was pretty easy.

Thanks~  I started out with the free Celia tank top pattern from Berrocco but decided to modify it as I got going.  The top and bottom stitches follow the pattern, but then I added three rows of double crochet to the bottom and both sides and then attached two long straps - each about double the length of the shirt (they were just long chains of single crochet).  I criss crossed the straps across the back - threading them through like lacing sneakers until it looked right to me. That's all!  It was really quick and I like it a lot better than the original pattern (and I have so much yarn left over!)  I really like the actual stitch pattern across the front - it's a bit tricky - but I recommend it to anyone.  Thanks for your comments everyone!

Beautiful work, I have 2 tops that I have made similar to that and I have not been able to wear them either.  I need to do some crunches first lol.

Absolutely gorgeous! I showed my boyfriend and now he's pretty much demanding that I make one too, lol.

How much yarn did you use (and for what size)? I think I'll be using Lion Brand Cotton for mine, which is 4-5 ounces each, depending on solid or ombre.

Also, how see-through are the cups? Did you line them?

(Yes, I've got question crazy - I just want to get this right  Grin )
