Shimmy Shimmy Boobholder


I know this is a bit after the fact, but here are photos of the finished Boobholder... just love it. Really happy with how this turned out!

Adaptations to the pattern : did make puffy sleeves, used seed stitch for the edges rather than garter stitch, changed the increases along the fronts, and didn't do the 'busty lady' increases - well, I did, but they made it too big, so I ripped that bit out and reknit it. If anything it's a bit gape-y at the very top. I tried using a button to close it, but decided in the end that ties worked better.


See, an official bellydancing pose (I should do some pics with the hip scarf on, shouldn't I?!)...

  6. That is cute and having taken the belly dancing classes, will fit right in with standard wear. :) Oh, and it would not be complete without the hip scarf... so jingle it up sister!
