I started the Shapely Tank, from Joan McGowan-Michael at White Lies Designs, last year, and it's still a WIP. Or, to be more specific, it's still only half made. After I'd started, I read in a forum (Ravelry, I think) that the hip measurement is meant to be a high hip measurement, rather than a full hip measurement. Since I sized it based on the measurement at the largest part of my hips, this top was always going to be a little looser than suggested. To complicate matters further, I've lost weight since I started!
The front panel is done to just before the short rows, which may no longer be necessary due to the large size. The back panel is done to the same point, since I wanted to be certain both panels were the right size before I did any further shaping. I pinned the edges of both pieces together, with the active stitches on a string, and slipped it over my torso. And... yep. Too big. And now I can't decide whether to keep going, or rip it and start over, or rip it and start a new pattern.
So there it sits, mocking me with its unfinishedness.
