I havent started yet. I am watching you tube video of different stitches to see how it looks. I think on the top bit I would use a close stitch like half double (is that right) and then towards the bottom maybe double crochet with a chain in between or something like that to make it more open. Have to read your PM again, did you use DK or fingering weight for the shirt.

I may try to have a go at the shorts as well, was wondering if you could crochet with yarn and elastic together to make the waist elasticated or would you sew in an elastic after the crochet is done?

I used a DK weight cotton type of yarn for the white and green. This one is an elastic type of yarn it was a mill ends bag from Walmart so I have no idea for sure what it is. For the waist on the shorts I made a drawstring and holes to lace it through when I crocheted around the waist part.

For the top I did a half Double crochet and then did just like you said a double or triple crochet chained one and then double or triple crochet in the next spot after skipping one stitch which is what makes the holes on this one. On the green and white one I just did triple crochets over and over right next to each other so it is not as big of a hole.
