ShelleyDress is knitted from top to bottom, first the straps, then the two bra cups, after which the top part is extended with the back piece. The dress has a K/P-pattern that applies throughout the entire work and gives it a unique look. The dress even has a beautiful slit at the bottom.

Chest circumference (widest place, measured on own body): 80-84 (85-90) 91-95 (96-100) 101-110 cm
Armpit to armpit over the chest, measured on on own body: 40-42 (42-45) 45-48 (48-50) 50-55 cm
Ease (negative): 5-10 cm, ie. 5-10 cm is drawn from your measurements on your own body, after which you choose the circumference below that fits these measurements. Remember that the cups should only cover the chest area, which is why these measurements are small.
Remember that the cups should only cover the chest area, which is why these measurements are small. So, if, for example, you measure 45 cm above the chest (from armpit to armpit), a size small would be appropriate in relation to the measurements of the cups and the ease.
The measurements of the cups themselves: 37 (39) 42 (45) 48 cm
The circumference of the top with the back piece (ie just below the chest): 65 (68) 72 (75) 79 cm
Hip circumference: 80 (82) 86 (90) 96 cm
The dress measures about 5-10 cm less as a garment than when you wear it. You should choose the smaller size if you are standing between two, as it can also expand a bit during use.
My ShelleyDress in the picture above is knitted in a size small and my measurements are 90 cm over the chest, 76 cm around the waist, and 99 cm around the hip.
