I finished it. Kind of.

Aaaahhhh! This is why it was better to have my bustier unfinished in my knitting basket. It is too big!! I measured and it seemed fine but when I sewed on the fabric and laced it up it's too big.

Just when I think maybe it's not that big and I can live with it and wear it, I move a certain way and the back of the top sags unflatteringly. I took a picture to prove that it's too big and I'm not just being everly critical but Blogger isn't letting me upload pictures right now.

I'll try to figure it out in the next few days because I really want this top to work! I love the yarn and the pattern is really pretty.

I have some ideas of how to fix it but I'm not too thrilled with any of them. I thought of sewing the knitted fabric closer to the grommets inthe back but even that won't tighten it up enough. I'd have to lose the lace-up back altogether and I don't want to do that. I also could fold the the knitted fabric and sew some darts into the back but I'm not sure how that would look. I'll try to figure it out in the next few days.

Any suggestions? I'm open to anything as long as I end up with a pretty tank top that fits!

Oh no!!! :( I wish I had some good suggestions for you . . . . but I'm clueless. I'm sure a more experienced seamstress will come along with a great solution for you though.
