I ripped Green Gable back to the lace part to start over for the 3 freaking time. I am not built like the model in the pattern (pretty much the same measurements from shoulder to hip) so that is the problem.
I have a 36"-37" (depending on the bra I'm wearing), from my rib cage to hips I am 33" and the hips are about 38" around. So with my shape, the pattern size options and lack of shaping, this pattern does not work for me. Therefore I will need to figure out a way to strategically integrate decreases and increase to have this tee work well for me. Sounds like work, however for future knits I will already have the pattern down pat and other tee/sweaters will work out well. Time spent now will be beneficial for future projects.
In good news I received this in mail yesterday:
I haven't had a chance to browse through it, but I am sure it will be useful in the future.
