Victoria Tank... or not so

I thought, before I wash and block the Victoria Tank, I should try it on, just to see where it's too tight or too loose, or whatever, so I can adjust it (where possible) when blocking. Oh well...

This is the first shot of the Victoria Tank, with me inside. I like the length, and I like the width. So far, so good. What I don't like is that I have to keep my arms up, just like in the picture above: The straps are a bit too short, maybe just a centimeter or two (0.4-0.8 in). Dammit! That means I have to undo the already woven-in ends, the seaming for the picot edges, the picot edges altogether, and the crocheted strap helpers. Great. I guess this garment will go in the bin until early spring, and then I'll do the changes.

Here's another shot, with better light. You can't see much of the armholes, but they do pinch quite a bit, I can tell you!

I love it! Where did you get the pattern from....what yarn did you use. Please tell all the details....

Other than the pinching, I see no problem. Unless you're not for the midriff-baring clothing. In that case, I see why would you want to take it in.
