I'm having a brain cramp...hasn't there been a wrap top pattern issued in the past year that wraps above the bust so that there are two layers over the chest? I can't seem to locate it and I know that a reviewer has made the comment that this worked well in her thin knit.

Help, please!

I think Loes Hinse has one, though I haven't studied it too closely.

Those are all good ones...I don't think the Simplicity actually wraps but before now I hadn't realized that it was also good for knits. It might have been Nikki's review of the Vogue...I'll have to go check
Thanks ladies!!!!

This style was a good choice for my thin and somewhat translucent fabric - the double layered front gives better coverage.

Yup, can't believe I remembered that from 2003 but it was her review.
