Q&A with knittingkim

Lora Elizabeth asked:
Creative! I love the fit you achieved. Thank you for posting a picture of you wearing the sweater. I'm getting ready to start knitting and my hips are bigger than my bust. So i am concerned about using my bust as the largest width measurement. Do you have any tips to share on the fit you achieved? Thank you!
knittingkim answered:
Amy's instructions on using your gauge swatch and some easy math really helped me get the fit. This sweater design is already cinched in the middle for fit. Check out all the dimensions of the sweater and your own. You may be surprised that it will fit nicely already. Have fun!
