101 Rev. 3 Cross-over-rib Top
This exquisitely simple top may be one of the most flattering things you'll ever wear. Imagine it: curves outlined in this beautiful sweep of fabric with the wonderful deep V-front accentuating the waist (and the designer points out that it minimizes the tummy as well). Melville explains the piece's unusual construction in detail, and carefully outlines the sewing steps. Not the fastest garment to make, perhaps, but it is a timeless investment in your own good looks.

Don't hesitate to knit this up if you're full-figured: it's amazingly flattering, given the hourglass shaping and the pointed fronts. (I'm a 34DD and knit up the large size - it's a stunner!)
New reviews will be available soon.
