I've been seeing a lot of these tank-tunics lately--and on a variety of body types! (No, really.) This one makes me think of a great after-yoga (Pilates?) cover-up; it also makes me think of all those darling dance outfits the folks wear for practice sessions on TV dance shows.
Wear it clingy if that makes you happy; wear it looser for a California-heels-and-sunshine-shopping look.
If the length makes you nervous because it might enhance curves you'd rather hide, then you have two options: work the waist and hip section with larger needles, to give yourself more room there; or shorten the tunic so it becomes a lace tank, gracefully skimming just the top of your widest bits.
Specific tips for our Gallery Gals:
- I think Allison needs the next size up, due to the way it pulls across her bust.
- Karen's wearing it with 2" positive ease, but this works for her because she likes to layer things underneath.
- Note the difference in length between 5' 8" Sharon and 5' 4" Karen. To determine length for yourself, mark where the underarms fall on a favorite tank top, then measure down your side to the point where you'd like the tank to end. Compare that to the schematic and knit accordingly.
