Selecting A Size
Petal Party Crop is designed to be worn with 2-6” / 5.1-15.2 cm of positive ease. With this in mind, select a size that is 2-6” / 5.1 -15.2 cm larger than your actual bust measurement.

The amount of ease you choose depends on your style preferences or how you plan to wear your Petal Party Crop. You’re also welcome to select a size with less than 2” of positive ease if you prefer a closer fit!

If cropped length tees aren’t your jam, you could easily add repeats to the body to reach your preferred length. Just be mindful of how this will change your required yardage. Several test knitters did this - I recommend checking out the project pages!
