row 10...ch1 * hdc in 1st st, work 2 hdc in next st* rep across, turn.
I forgot to add, that you can repeat row 10, 1 or more times to make a REALLY fluffed out puffy skirt.

row 1 hdc in each st across, turn
rows 12-? rep 11 until dress is desired length.
at the end of your last row, end the main color and join the contrast color, sc all around ,working up the dress edges , around neck and down and around
the other side, join to 1st contrast colored sc with a slip st.
finish off, join contrast color to sleeve edges and sc around. finish off and weave in all ends.
to make ties, either chain in desired color long enough to wrap around dress waist and tie a bow on the side, or, cut a lenght of ribbon the same length, then
weave it through row 10, begining at cross over edge , around the back, and ending under the opposite arm , tie in a bow to secure.
