Louisa Harding Tank - Done

It looks OK by itself...

But not so great on me.

You can't really tell from this picture, but the back is loose and gappy. I made the Small, but I think I needed to make the Extra Small. Even though the finished tank = the finished measurements of the small, the stretchy fabric just kind of drapes instead of conforming to my body.

I was reading on the Knitty boards that one way to fix this is to work a few rows of crochet on the top, but in this case, the ribbon edging is inelastic so I'm not sure how that would have worked. I could maybe wear it with a shirt under it....or find someone who it fits!

You have been a busy girl! Awesome job on finishing up so many projects! I think your Green Gables looks great--can't wait to see it done. Sorry your Louisa Harding tank is bunchy. It's cute, though.
