No. If your favorite hoodie has a chest measurement of 48"...then you want your CPH chest measurement to be the 48" at least. I think the measurements that our pattern gives is for FINISHED MEASUREMENTS. I'll go double check myself...but I think that's right.

No, your way IS NOT a cheater's way! It is the smart way!
It is the way that most designers advise!
