NOTES
Because of the loose and open nature of stitch, Cover Up will adjust to fit a large number of sizes. Cover up is worked beginning at side edge at underarm of Bodice, working towards center of Back or
Front, shaping for Armhole and Neck. Front and Back pieces are joined at center of Neck.
Stitches are then picked up along lower long edge and worked towards lower edge for skirt.
