Explains Bingham: "The vest is worked in one piece from side to side, beginning at the left front edge, and ending at the right front edge. Because sideways garter stitch will stretch around the body, the vest is intended to be worn with negative ease. For the close fit shown in the photographs, select a finished size about 1” to 2” [2.5 to 5 cm] smaller than your actual bust measurement. The vest can also be worn with a wider gap between the fronts at the bustline to accommodate larger sizes." Lots of adjustment is possible here, and we love the little wrapped short-row flares that flirt up the hem.
