A shell came to mind right away when I saw the yarn. Or Shapely Tank - not sure on the yardage for that one.

Thanks RoseM,

what kind of shell? maybe I should make a V-neck?
do you have any ideas for strappy patterns, or where can I find Shapely Tank?

Sigma from knitting is a great adjustable pattern that results is somewhat thin straps, but generally wide enough to cover bra straps.

You can see one I knit with a 38-inch bust measurement for my SIL. I combined Sigma and Shapely.
