Thanks for the advice, ladies! Yes, I'm planning on making the lace part higher/skinnier so it's just under the boobs. So spaced out short rows would work well? I don't mind the fitted-over-tummy look, I'm getting bored of all the maternity tops that hang loose and swing around- this might be a good 'hoochie-mama' maternity top
. That and I would have *no* idea how to flare out the bottom- paired increases on either side of the front?
I hope it turns out wearable and I don't have to frog too many times. Thanks again!
