fairly satisfied.

Here's the tank, still a little damp, but I got tired of waiting. It's still a little big, despite a few minor modifications, but wearable (as soon as I find something to wear under it) and very comfortable. It was a quick project, at least, and interesting, although I don't think its the most flattering garment, just being a tube. I'm interested to see if any of you folks who were going to put in shaping succeeded.

More details at my blog.

That looks very good. When I saw your earlier photo, I thought the straps looked far too close together, but it looks absolutely right now that it's on. I wouldn't worry about shaping: once you're moving about in it, it will show you off brilliantly, I'm sure.

hmm. You might not think it flattering, but it does look good on you in the photos here and on your blog (it's very helpful to see it on a Real Person). I love the idea of it, but I have a bust and hips; I'm fairly certain it would look crap stretched across the width. Alas. Never mourn being straight up and down, it gives you so many more options! :-)

I'm not certain I like the straps, though; somehow the straight ribbing lets the rest of the design down. I wonder using the same pattern as the strip would look better.

It's stunning!!!! The perfect colour for you. I'm just starting mine in the cayenne colour.

I think it looks great without the shaping. The color looks really good with your skin tone too.

I just saw this garment in person today at Webs. Norah was giving a talk about the book, and brought along a trunk show. It is a very cool tank!
