Summer Crochet Top - 1st finished item from a French pattern!

Hi! This is my 1st finished yarn-crafted item from a French pattern. It was a lot of fun. The stitches are all the same (single/double/triple), just called differently in French. The pattern is from a Bergère de France book. I used the tutorial from the book to make sure I was using single, double, and triple crochet in the right areas.  The increases and decreases in French were slightly more challenging! : )  I had to add the pattern (Top evasé) to Ravelry myself today - you can find it here. Ravelry even featured my photo! : )

Photos were taken by my husband on the balcony of our amazing hotel in Maui, where we vacationed and attended our friend Ellen's wedding!
