I saw this pattern demonstrated on Knit and Crochet Now!, one of my favorite needlecraft shows.  It’s a novel concept (at least to me): the piece is crocheted not top-to-bottom, but side-to-side, and cleverly uses the varying heights of different crochet stitches to form the shape of the garment — thus, not one single increase or decrease!

All stitches are worked on the back bar of the chains, giving the garment an attractive, stretchy ribbing.  I have scoliosis, so I tend to be wary of tops with close-fitting or revealing backs, but because of this top’s texture, and because the back piece omits the under-bust sc shaping, I think it’ll be a good choice for me.
