Hi,

This pattern is in the Interweave Crochet Spring 2012 issue.  If you click the green "Go There" button across from the main image above, you will go to the Crochet Me Shop where you can find the issue. You can also check your local yarn or craft stores.

I need corrections for this pattern.  Row 9 and then all of the following rows, make the front and back of the pattern uneven, when they rsupposed to be even. Please help with this pattern.

I did the lower part and didn't have a problem with it, although I think it would need to be longer before doing the decreases, but I do love how it fits my body and how the decreases are all in the right places.

My problem is in the bodice part!!!

I'm making the largest size, and all sizes start the bodice with 74 chains.... I finished the first bodice piece and joined the front end to the lower body and there is NO WAY that I can join the back and it will fit me. With the top on, the bodice gets to my shoulder blades and I need like 6 more inches in lenght of the bodice so I can join it to the lower body and so it would fit properly.

Is there any corrections on the number of initial chains of the bodice?

A smaller person and a bigger person don't measure the same over the shoulder in the same way they don't measure the same around the chest... right?

Thanks!
