So i'm just starting the prepster and I'm wondering about the sizing. If my bust measurment is 36", should I make the 2nd size- the finished 36" measurement or should I go one size up to 40"? I'm 6 foot and have broad shoulders so I'm having a hard time believing that the next to smallest size is the correct one.

I'd go the next size up.

I had to restart my prepster halfway through the back because I realized it was pretty darn small! As much as I'd like it to be 'fitted', I'd probably wear it over a zip-up hoodie anyway, so I'm making the second size (I'm 5'4, 115lbs; rather petite, and accustomed to wearing S or XS)

In addition, too big is always better than too small. Worst case scenario, you have to take your blazer in a bit at the sides or under the arms?

Good luck! and keep us posted

I only post compliments that I really and truly mean.

Yeah, you're probably right. I guess I'll go for the 40" size, luckily I bought enough yarn for it. Thanks
