The same is not recommended to be done with a sweater that tight, as for the fur vest these sizes will simply be inadequate, and you risk to spoil the whole painting. If there is nothing else, making markings with a good margin, who then cut off.
When all the markup margin was made, take a meter and measure the circumference of the armhole of the sweater. Ensure that the armhole on the fur fabric was where it should be.
