Hi,

I’m making a sweater for my mom…it is a cardigan type…I would do a link, but don’t know how to…anyway…

her bust measurement it 36 inches and the length from the nape of her neck to her derriaire (behind) is 22 inches.

Here are my choices:

Bust at underarm: 36 (40,44,48,52)

Length: 23 and a half (24,24 and a half, 25,25 and a half)

My first instinct is to go for the first size, but then wonder if it would be “just the right fit” or “form fitting”.

I know there are terms like “negative ease” and I’ve read a little bit about it, but I don’t really understand it.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, since I told my mom I would make this for her 1 year and 10 months ago :oops:

Thanks!
