hmm... it fits a little funny, but i expected that since i had gauge problems.  i think the stitch gauge was ok, but the rows were off.  also, for some reason (and i followed the pattern all the way through) the measurement for the lower torso (below arm shaping) was fine and then the parts above where the arm shaping started stretched more or something.  i dunno, but now it sits a little low in the chest.

maybe i'll like it more when i add some ribbon...

i might try it again some other time and i would make sure to get the gauge right first!   Smiley

I have issues with gauge and crochet myself.  Some things come out too small and others too large - I expected to be consistently one or the other ! Strangely, my cupcake came out about right. Putting the ribbon through does sturdy up the neckline a bit. It looks great in this colour .

Wow, looks really well-made.  I like the colors you choose for it.  It'll be really cute with a cami underneath even if the gauge turned out different than you'd hoped.

I love this colour.  I just went out and bought a bunch of light blue cotton with the sole purpose of trying this pattern.  I hope I don't have any of the guage issues you speak of.

I had exactly the opposite problem, my cupcake sat too high on the chest, I like the way yours sits much better, and the color is so shiny!

I'm not sure if its just a variety of yarns and individual crocheting technique, but I've been finding alot of patterns from this book seem a little wonky, and from reading posts it seems like alot of other people have been having issues too. ( I've done the jolly rodger, cupcake and unseamly sweaters and had to do alot of adjusting to get the right size and for it to look right.)

I actually really like it, and wouldn't mind if mine came out a little low cut!  What yarn did you use? I really like how it lays and the shine.

I'm totally into the low cut.  It came out great!
