Picking Your Size:
Choose a size that is approx 2-5”/5-13 cm larger than your actual chest measurement, depending on desired fit. Sample is shown in size 3 (37.75”/96 cm), being worn with approx 4.75”/12 cm of positive ease at the chest. Julie's Note: I made the 37.75" size for 0 inches of ease and like the fit with a button closure.  If you want to wear it open as shown, then go for more ease.
