Hi all.  I posted this question to the Sexy Knitter's Club but haven't gotten a lot of answers yet.  Craftster has been so good to me, so I figured that I'd try here  Smiley

I'm looking at the Red Carpet Convertible pattern and noticed the sizing. For a medium (bust size 38"), the stated finished measure ment is 40". I'm confused - doesn't a garment of this nature usually have negative ease instead of positive ease? For example, Annie's corset top has a 1" negative ease. I measured out 40" on my 38" bust body and it seems like it would be awfully loose. Any ideas?

Thanks!

I don't have the pattern but from looking at the picture you linked to I'd say it is probably meant to drape a little. If it had the negative ease and fit tightly it would not be possible to "pull it down and gather it to create a deep cleveage look" as is suggested and shown in the bottom picture.
