Pattern Info

Pattern includes 10 sizes:
Ladies XXS (XS, S, M, ML, L, XL, XXL, 3XL, 4XL)
Finished Bust: 28 (30, 32.5, 34.5, 36, 39, 43, 46, 50, 54) inches

Sizing notes: Choose a size 1 to 4 inches smaller than your bust measurement, as the fabric is extremely stretchy, and it should cling over bust. If working garment in a heavier yarn the fabric will be less stretchy, so choose a size with less negative ease. Garment is shown on 2 models for comparison - Cassy (33” bust) is wearing size S (32.5”) with 0.5” negative ease, and Nina (38” bust) is wearing size S (32.5”) with 5.5” negative ease. As you can see, the garment is extremely stretchy - choose your desired ease accordingly.
