Ballerina Question

I just started my first Hanne Ballerina and thanks to Amy, the spreadsheet has made for an enjoyable knit. I am still a bit curious about sizing. I am 5'7' and about 135 lbs. I was making the larger size for the length. Does anyone have any more experience with this? I'd hate to goof, but would really be sad if I did all the work and it ended up being too small.

I'm 5'9" and about 145ish, and I made the smallest side of Mermaid and it is even perhaps a bit big. I suppose it depends quite a bit on how you're shaped and how muscle-y you are.

I've knit a couple of Ballerinas and I'm a size 12 and knit the large and there is plenty of room. Because of the design it is meant to fit loosely.

Amy's spread sheet makes these knits a delight! Thank you Amy!

I am 5'6, about 145 lbs. The size Small was quite long enough. It really is a wide swing coat. I would worry about the bulk of the raglan sleeves on a size large as they are already wide on the smaller size.
