I had the same problem with the straps being to far over. I attached them as a crossover x-back and it eliminated any falling shoulder strap issues. You could try that instead of finding a broad shouldered friend.

hi baigneuse, i checked out your cami and it looks great - i think yours looks closer to my own body size, i'm a 39" bust and i've been wondering whether this pattern would be any good on me or not.  did you make notes of your pattern alterations, id be grateful if you could share them?

I would really like to start this once i get some yarn.. i have a bunch of red heart super saver.. just not more than one skein of any color. wait.. i have a one pound of caron in light blue.. that might be enough? ive a pretty skinny girl, it should work..

Hi Vinny,
I follwed the pattern pretty faithfully so there aren't too many notes about it. Here are some:
Knit in Knitpicks Palette with the same gauge as the pattern.
I did 17 repeats of the lace so that is a cast on of 204 stitches. This was for a 39" bust.
If I could do it again I wouldn't halve my stitches at the part of the pattern for the armpits. I would have had more stitches in the back than in the front. When I did it the straps were too far over and that's why I had to turn it into an X-back. I'd should have left about 18-24 stitches off the front part.
I hope this was helpful. Let me know if you have any questions.

I just cast on for this the other day. I'm using Caron in dark blue although I'm kind of wondering if I should've used the light blue. But there is no way I am ripping out those stitches after casting on so many. I'm making it with one more pattern repeat than it calls for. I really like how it looks, everyone's have looked great. I'm just hoping I can finish it before the cool weater sets back in. But I have finally mastered knitting continental so hopefully it won't be a problem.

Here is my progress after two days. This is usually where I run out of steam. Here's to hoping I finish quickly.

I've started this too! I'm using white microspun, and am about as far as Lulu Clyde. I'm so excited to finish; I can't knit fast enough!
