All measurements are taken with the garment laying flat after is has been washed warm and tumbled dry once, to take out any intentional shrinkage. So, this measurement represents our naturally dyed pieces as you will receive them and our undyed pieces as they will measure after their first wash.

Since the Barcelona has drop shoulders and an a-line shape, the "pit-to-pit" measurement is a bit unusual so don't take it as a "chest" measurement. For the desired fit, the pit-to-pit measurement should be a good bit larger than your chest measurement! Still confused? Use the image below the chart to see exactly where we're measuring!

Barcelona Pullover Measurements

FAQS

Q: It looks cropped? How cropped is it?

A: Not at all! For most people, this pullover would definitely be classified as full length. If you have a longer torso, it could be a bit cropped. Take a look at the garment measurements above and compare the "front length neck to hem" with the center front length of a similar shirt you have at home if you're worried. 

Q: What climate or weather is the Barcelona Pullover best suited for?

A: The Barcelona is an excellent year round piece for most climates! Due to its asymmetrical lines, it hangs off the body at the bottom allowing for airflow. We like it alone or as an outer layer in spring, autumn and summer evenings.   On a cold winter day, you may find it most comfortable to add some extra layers. Since our french terry is so soft on the skin it is wonderful to wear under bigger bulkier outerwear.

Q: If I like my clothes more fitted/looser, can I size down/up?

A: This garment is designed to fit loose and flowy. We recommend taking your regular size, that said, some people have sized down to wonderful results. For example, we had a customer who wanted their bracelets to show and sizing down enabled a glimpse of the wrist without rolling up the sleeves. The body of the garment, due to its flowy nature and dropped shoulders, it did not get too small. Some customers choose to size up for an even looser fit.

Q: I'm between sizes and trying to choose a size! Is there an aspect of the fit of this garment to focus on to choose my best size?

A: The Barcelona Pullover fits true to size! Most people who fall in between sizes can happily wear either size they're trying to choose between, so I'd ask yourself, do I want this to have a more fitted or flowy look?

Q: Is it longer in the back than the front?

A: Yes, it swoops lower in the back. Depending on your size, it's 4-4.5" longer in the back than the front.

Q: Does it shrink?

A: All of our undyed clothing shrinks after the first wash. We wrote a blog post about it that you can read here. In summary, we prefer a bit of shrinkage to the common alternatives which are not very healthy. Don't worry, we designed it to fit and look best after the first wash which takes out all the shrink! Our naturally dyed clothing does not shrink as heat is a part of the natural dyeing process.

Q: What colors is it available in? You're out of my favorite color... will you be restocking it?

A: At the moment, the Barcelona Pullover is available in classic UndyedMadder Root RedLuminous Black & Verdant Green. All colors are made from the exact same undyed colorganic® fabric so they'll have the same weight, feel and warmth. As for when we'll restock items, unfortunately we are unable to predict this due to the challenges of running a small, inventory based business. So while they're here, they're here!

Q: What's the difference between the Barcelona Pullover and the Vancouver Island Pullover?

A: We get this a lot! The Barcelona and the Vancouver are made out of the exact same material.  The Vancouver has straight sides with an even hemline and is a bit longer, while the Barcelona has an A-line silhouette with drop shoulders and a longer back hem than front.

It's an excellent year around piece for most climates! Due to its asymmetrical lines, it stands off of the body a bit at the bottom, so it has plenty of airflow for temperatures in the 70°F and high 20C° range making it ideal for spring and autumn, either as a layer or alone. It can be a bit hot for the hottest days of summer, but is wonderful to pull on around a campfire in the evenings. On a cold winter day, you may find it most comfortable in layers! I imagine it over a silk dress with some wool leggings underneath and cozy socks.

This garment does fit very true to size, so we recommend taking your regular size. That said, some people have sized down to wonderful results.
