Thank you, my friends! You are so encouraging!

Now, I have finished about 12 inches on the skirt, so I decided to run a string through the stitches before I bind them off to see if it's long enough. I think it looks pretty good!

I'll take it to my cousin's yarn store today, and get her approval. If I need to make it any longer, I'll need another skein of Cotton Twist.

When I finish completely, I'll need to sew a lining underneath the skirt, because the lace is so open. I am VERY happy with how it has turned out!

Question on the "Front - Shape Armhole"
Your photos look amazing! I am actually attempting to make this for my niece's christening but reading through the instructions...I'm already confused. The shaping for the armhole (for the front)...says "work even for 2 1/2 inches"...is that correct? Any advice?

The pattern is WAY confusing!!!! I did finally make the top through the armholes, but it took EVERY BIT of my brainpower to accomplish it. She just leaves you hanging there, without any reminders at all.

The 2 1/2 inches is correct. You just have to make the right back first, and you'll see how it lines up beside it.

Right now, I'm working on making a "row by row" version of the pattern.

I mentioned this earlier, but just to let you know....I did a COMPLETELY different skirt than what she has in the pattern. Her stitch count didn't match up with the number of stitches required for the pattern. Weird!

I ended up using a Lace Wings pattern for the skirt. MUCH easier, and I think it's prettier too!

You're very welcome, my friend!

My cousin said that she is very happy with the length of the gown, so I'll be binding off stitches tonight!

Now, I just have to go to the store to find some matching buttons, and add a ribbon at the waistline. Then, I'll be DONE!
