Skirt
You will be working in the ch2 spaces and the bottom of the Vst, join your yarn to any of the ch2 spaces, I like to join mine in a ch2 space where the side seam would be.

Round 6: Repeat Round 2


Your skirt will be made up of 5 rounds that are repeated and you will be increasing 2st in between your Fans for every row of your 5 rounds. So you started with 1dc in between your fans, the next set of 5 rounds you will start off with 3, and the next set will be 5, and so on and so on.
2nd set of increase rounds:
Round 1: ch3, dc in the next dc, *ch1 sk the next 2dc and ch1sp, in the next st make 5dc, in the next st make 5 more dc, ch1, sk the ch1 sp and 2dc, dc in the next 3st* repeat from *to* around ending with 1dc in the last st, sl st with the ch3.
Round 2: ch3, dc in the next st, dc in the ch1 sp, *ch1, sk the next 4st, 4dc in the next 2 dc, sk the next 4dc, ch1, in the ch1 sp dc, dc in the next 3st, dc in the ch1 sp,* Repeat from *to* around ending with 1dc in the last ch1 sp and dc in the last st, sl st with the ch3.
Round 3: ch3, dc in the next 2st, dc in the ch1 sp, *ch1, sk the next 3st, 3dc in the next 2st, ch1, sk the next 3st, in the ch1 sp from the previous round dc, dc in the next 5st, dc in the next ch1 sp* Repeat from *to* around ending with a dc in ch1 sp and dc in the last 2 st, sl st with the ch3.
Round 4: ch3, dc in the next 3st, dc in the ch1 sp, *ch1, sk the next 2st, 2dc in the next 2st, ch1, sk the next 2st, in the ch1 sp from the previous round dc, dc in the next 7st, dc in the ch1 sp,* repeat from *to* around ending with making dc in the ch1 sp and dc in each of the next 3st, sl st with the ch3.

The pattern repeats again with 2st increased between the fans, you will start off with 5dc in between fans in this round instead of 3 and end with 13 instead of 11. Your fans are the clusters between the ch1 spaces. The arrows in the pic below point out the fans.

For all sizes: Now that you have the hang of increasing you will continue with the 5 rounds repeating the increases until you are at the fullness you desire and the length as well. If you want your skirt to be longer with less flow, stop increasing and repeat the last 5 rounds you finished until you reach your desired length.
I made a total of 40 rounds, which I continued to increase over the 5 rounds for 8 times. My last set of 5 rounds started with 19 dc in between fans and on the 5th round I had 27 dc in between the fans.
Once you are happy with the fullness and length fasten off and hide all loose tails.
Below times.

NOTE:
You can make this smaller or
making sure it is a multiple of 3. Making sure that the number of Vst you end up with as well is divisible

larger, you will need to make your chain to fit just below your breast,

by 2. Get your chain number divide that by 3 and if the number you are left with can be divided in 2 you are set, if not add an extra 3 ch.
You will then follow Row 1 of the top and continue until your tube fits just under your breast to just under your armpit.
You will start the Sleeve and strap part of you top, working the same as the directions just your number of Vst in between the ch3 and dc will be more or less.
For your shoulder straps you will follow it the same as the pattern but you may need to add a few more rows or take off a few rows, just remember to repeat that number on the opposite side. Repeat the same for the front sleeve and strap part, sew the straps and start to work on your skirt.
For the skirt you will want to make sure the amount of sc you add will be a multiple of 12. You will have the base chain number you started with for your top, then use that to add more st till you can divide that by 12, those extra numbers are the sts you will increase evenly across your tops bottom per the instructions.
Then continue with the pattern until you are happy with the length and fullness.
