What do they mean by ch 1 sp??? The previous row is a v stitch with a chain one space between 2 dcs is this the space they are talking about and if so am I just skipping it or doing a dc in the ch 1 sp???? Or am I creating another space ughhh.......

thank you for your help - really do appreciate it.
Slip stitch in the first dc; slip stitch in the next dc; slip stitch in the chain of the V stitch. Repeat this part (sl st in next dc, ch 1 sp, dc) 3 times.

What you're doing is moving your working yarn to where you start making more stitches to lengthen the rest of the top w/o adding length under the arm. Slip stitching in each dc and chain 1 space will do it neatly. If I'm counting correctly you'll be slip stitching in 13 stitches and you'll want to make sure you leave the same number of stitches unworked at the end of the row.

That's a really cute top.
