Crotch and Legs:
You will now place your work in front of you so the front is facing you. You are going to find the center of the waist you just worked on by finding the center of the top and following it down to the last row you did, place a st marker in that st, repeating the same process on the back but using the front st marker and join the front and back together. You should have the same amount of stitches on either side of your marker. If you dont then just readjust until you do.

Round 1: Now Joining again with your MC yarn, pick you the stitch from the left side of the stitch marker and ch3, 2dc in the same st, 3dc in the space between the 3dc from previous round until you reach the stitch marker, making sure to make 3dc in that stitch marker, you will now sl st with the ch3.
Round 2-30 (2-32, 2-34): ch3, 2dc in the same sp, 3dc in between the 3dc from previous round, repeat that around your work until you reach the ch3, sl st with it.
Once you reach this point it is best to try it on again you will want your leg now to sit just below your knee before you begin the flare. If it isnt and you need to add more rows do so now but take note on how many extra rows you do for when you do the other leg it well be even.
The Flare:

Lay your work in front of you, you will want to mark the side seams with a stitch marker. This will be where you make your increases. Make sure that you have the same amount of stitches in the front as you do the back when you place your markers.
Continue with your work as follows:
Round 1: ch3, 2dc in the same st, 3dc in the space between the 3dc from previous round, repeat that until you reach the first stitch marker, you will make 6 dc in that place, continue working 3dc in the space between the 3dc from previous round until you reach the 2nd stitch marker, in that space make 6dc, work 3dc in the space between the 3dc from previous round until you reach the ch3, sl st with it.

You will work this border around the armhole openings and neck opening.
Armhole Border:
Starting with one of the armhole openings, join your MC yarn to the underarm seam.
