*To choose your size, measure the circumference of your chest at the bust. The designer recommends the sweater be worn with a positive ease of 6-8” [15-20cm], so add that to your chest measurement to determine your size. For example, if your chest measures 36", add 6-8" of ease to that to get 42-44", which corresponds to a size 3. You can then adjust up or down to accommodate for more or less ease, whichever you prefer. See images for size chart.
