Knitted Lace Top

I made a knitted lace top recently which I super duper love.. though people think it makes me fat wearing it. Yet, I really love this kind of loose top which.. gives my tummy enough allowance to expand at ease.

This is basically how it looks like. I made using this video tutorial

It's really a very easy tutorial to follow. Anybody can do this. I think I've used a thicker yarn - mine appears more bulky.

I also didn't realize the owner is such a petite size woman - well photos judgment told me we were more a less the same (which turns out untrue). So never mind, I added some sleeves on to mine. It looks great anyway, don't you think so?

Various views - 
Well ignore the pants' string - It is not meant to be captured actually.. 
I was so excited and forgot to tuck it in before I snapped. 

I used : 牛奶5股棉线  milk cotton 5-strands yarn with white label 50g each skein for approximately 5-7 skeins ; Milky-white colour ; light grey for sleeves 

Used 5mm knitting needles 

A: Eyelet stitch
R1: K
