I plan on starting the Summertime Tunic and am wondering which size to make. The finished sizes are 293?4 (331?2, 371?2, 41, 45)" bust circumference. I am barely a 32A. Should I go for negative ease and make the XS or would that be too tight? I normally wear a small.

Here is the pattern:

32" isn't necessarily the measurement of your bust at the biggest point.

i would grab a tape measure, measure yourself and then judge from there.

Exactly where should I measure?

Thanks!

At the largest spot..... 32" isn't necessarily your bust measurement, it's your bra size. I wear a 42D but actually measure about 44". It's easier to measure a sweater you like the fit of and determine the measurement from that.
