    If size 18 D-cup in the yanaka jacket fits very well with no alterations, should I choose XL D-cup or XXL D-cup for the Easton Cowl Tee?

    I plan to use a lightweight jersey (about 50% stretch both ways) of cotton/bamboo/lycra blend.

    It’s tricky to pick a size for a knit tee based on the fit of a woven jacket. I’d suggest that you might be happiest by comparing the measurements of a tee you already own and like–that way you’ll be more assured to get a fit that makes you happy.

    Following your advice to measure an existing tee, I used XL-D cup and blended it out to XXL from high hip down. After I made my toile, I decided to shorten the shoulder seam by 1/2″. Very pleased with the fit!
