The fit: It is designed with no ease to let it fit closely to the body. If you would like the sweater to be less fitted than the example, choose one size larger than your usual high bust measurement.

High bust measurement: To measure your high bust run the tape measure around your body directly underneath your underarms and above your actual bust. Choose the nearest size (rounding down) if you would like it to fit as in the example. Go up a size if you’d like a looser fit.

The example: The sweater in the pattern is 34” and is shown on myself with a 35” high bust measurement. In the example i also included 2” of bust darts which is why it has an additional button.
