Marie-Christine Lévesque’s Petite Marinière Moderne is a nautically inspired top-down sweater with sizes that will fit babies and children. Knit in soft, washable, wool-free CoBaSi (55% cotton, 2% nylon, 16% bamboo, 8% silk), this unisex pattern has a textured body and fun stripes using variegated or tonal dyed yarn against a solid main color background.
Petite Marinière Moderne is available in 7 sizes and is designed to be worn with 1-2” positive ease. The sizes listed below correspond to the actual measurement of the finished garment, so to achieve the recommended fit, please choose a size that is 1-2" larger than the child's chest measurement.

- Size 2 (6-12 months): 19” chest circumference
- Size 3 (1-2 years): 20” chest circumference
- Size 4 (2-4 years): 22” chest circumference
