Chevron Not-a-Tank

This doesn't look like the Chevron Tank in the Summer 2009 issue of Knit 1.
It sprouted 3/4 length sleeves and it reverses to a V-neck. Details on Ravelry and below.
Inspired by the successful pairing of knit and sewn coordinates in Unsuitable for plaids or stripes, I shopped my stash for some playmates for the sweater.
The paisley rayon is really too obnoxious in large doses. I will save it for lining and trim. The heavy weight fuchsia gauze is actually a very good color match. The cotton/lycra knit is on my cutting table right now.

Details:
Yarn: 4 skeins of Cotton-ease in Azalea.
Needles: Size 6 = 4.0 mm
Modifications: Many
- Knit in the round
- U-neck reverses to a V-neck
- 3/4 length sleeves instead of a tank top. I mean really--who wears a heavy weight cotton tank top in LA?
- 88 rows before armhole shaping on both the body and sleeves
- Hourglass shape instead of an A-line shape
