Notes

Got smaller gauge, so knitting the largest size for my 42.

Corrections:

  1. Smaller neck.
  2. Bust darts were made.
  3. Shoulder darts (additional raglan shaping) were made to avoid wrinkles in the underarms

One more significant modification was made. I re-knitted it almost from the beginning to get it wearable. It took 6 additional days, and it’s sad.

The pattern diagram does not reflect real shape of your front and back. You will get two bubbles near the side seam tied with the diagonal line in the center. If you follow the pattern, the lower bubble will sit on your ham, non-stretchy narrower diagonal line will sit on your hips, the higher bubble will sit on your waist. Unnatural non-flattering look. That’s why I made it shorter by the 8 cm. Now lower bubble sits on my hips (that is good), non stretchy narrow diagonal line accentuates my waist (that is even better!) and the higher bubble is killed by adding a lot more decreases near the side seam when knitting diagonal lines and after.
