looked at the pattern a little bit closer, I might have noticed that there could be a problem with the shoulder straps.
Notice the Askew at knitty. Now, do you notice where the shoulder strap starts? Right at the side seam of the top. I am not sure why it works for her, but I noticed on my tank tops and other tops that the shoulder strap does not start on the side seam, but a little bit in and there is a gradual arm hole.
Here is my Askew, as I am trying to figure out how to make the straps work. Notice my tank top underneath and where those straps are.
After I took this picture, Tony came home and held the straps down in the back. It does look better when he did that, but it sort of puckered and the armhole was too small.
We both decided the best thing to do would be to frog the straps. I think what I am going to do is bind off half of the stitches of the strap on the “side seam” side and pick up a few of the bind of stitches. I will work on it tomorrow and let you all know how it goes.
I later pinned the straps in place and tried to take a photo myself, and you can see how it puckers by the shoulders and the front sags a bit.
I am purposely hiding behind my bathroom plant as I don’t really want the world to see my bra, etc. But…you get the idea.
I am interested to hear your suggestions.
