Bonjour Marie, nous ne sommes malheureusement pas en mesure de répondre aux demandes individuelles, toutefois, je vous invite à regarder les mesures pour ce modèle et à les comparer à un vêtement analogue, les mesures et les tailles évoluent dans le temps. Vous pouvez également vous aider d'un modèle similaire (même tension) pour l'adapter à la taille souhaitée. Bon tricot!
