Please note at this time I have released the pattern in ONE SIZE. The body of the garment was very flattering on many different body types so I decided not to alter the body. The sleeves can be easily customized by removing or adding stitches in multiples of 4 when the pattern calls for you to pick up stitches around the arm hole openings to begin the sleeves. Or you can go down a needle size for a tighter gauge. But please note if you are going up a size you may require more yardage of yarn.
