This is wonderful! I think it's my favorite of their cardis so becoming a must order for me. Thanks for all the wonderful sizing info on StyleArc as I too am puzzled over where to go with size with them so I'll be sending them some questions. Your reviews are very helpful, and I appreciate it!

I would be a 12 in Big 4. Going up or down a size in Style Arc depends on your build - I would ask Chloe for advice.

Love your cardigan. I have this one in my queue to sew. Thanks for the helpful review.

Really cute cardi. I like how the ties give it some shape. Thinking of ordering a SA as I was just looking at your cute Gail twist top again. Do you sew an 8 in the Big 4? I'm between sizes on the SA and not sure whether to go up or down.

Yes, I generally make the same fitting changes across the board for Style Arc.

Great Cardi and very flattering. I am quickly becoming a huge Style Arc fan. Very nice job.

I love the styling of this. Your fitting tweaks are spot on as usual. Do you find that the fit changes that you make are pretty consistent from one pattern to another?

I added 1.25" to each side seam.

How did you add 5 inches to the hips? At the side seams, front edges, inside the body of the pattern, or any combination of these? I find most SA cardi type patterns narrow in the hips, but I can see this one made up in a number of drapey fabrics.
