Second sleeve done.

Body mods for a more fitted look:

  • CO 12 fewer stitches (about 40” at the hips)
  • 1 additional decrease round to bring the waist in to 30” (1” positive ease on a good day :P) - 128 sts
  • 6 increase rounds. Inc round, 3, inc, 3, inc, 3, inc, 3, inc, 3, inc, 3 - then resume pattern as written
  • Add length to the bottom - the above mod adds about 3”, which should be a good tunic length

I got pattern gauge and my upper bust measurement is about 35.5”, so I’m really surprised that this size is so large in the armpit area. It is cozy though.
