Will make a knit sample of this pattern and have read that it has a negative ease of 4"?. Comparing my measurements to chart, I am a "W" going up to a "CC" and wonder if I would increase it at least 2 sizes and add seam allowance as I don't like too tight tops.

Thank you.

It's been 2 1/2 years since I made this but I went back and read my review and I did go up 2 sizes and got a good fit. I do not like tight fits (too much fluff) either. If your fabric has nice stretch you will hopefully be OK!

You might want to measure the flat pattern and compare with your measurements and the amount of easy you prefer. It's really the only way to assure the fit you're looking for.
