Fit & Ease - what is ease?

Ease is the measurement of a garment that is greater than your physical chest size. When designing, ease is worked into each design; generally the greater the ease, the more casual the fit of the garment.
The fit of a garment is a combination of body ease and really importantly, the fit over the shoulder. The majority of Jane's designs have a fitted shoulder; unlike the chest size, the shoulder fit has no ease and there is very little difference between sizes, the chest may increase by 2"/5cm between sizes, but the shoulder will increase by less then ½"/1cm.

Fit is a personal preference, and also different per design. Left the garment is worn fitted, this is just 1½"/4cm larger than the model's chest size.
   Most garments are designs with 'ease'. This can be from 2"/5cm to 6"/15cm greater than your chest size.

Example Chest of 38"/96cm
Windsor Jacket (right) with 2"/5cm ease = 40"/101cm, this is designed to be fitted.
Blocks Cardigan is a casual style with 6"/15cm = 44"/111cm.

Stock garments are  identified each with a stock number & design name: Blocks HE22 colour and size 12 - 16, as well as measurements of that garment for chest, hip and length. Compare these to a knit in your wardrobe to gauge your size and ease. Happy to chat about sizes and colours.

Fit is a personal preference, a neat fit would have a chest ease of 4cm = your chest + 4cm; standard fit is about 6-8cm; loose + 12 to 15cm. The actual measurements per garment for chest, hip and body length are given. If you have a handknit in your wardrobe, check by measuring across the chest below the armhole.
