    No. You want not to possess it any more. Getting away from it merely means moving away from it.

    Hi

    Anglika is right. The sweater is too small for you, so you have to get rid of it.

    get rid of = dispose of; do away with; terminate; take out

    Then I think the answer is
    Why don't you get ........?
    (A) over with it
