What a delicate pattern! Almost a puff of air. And yarn is a perfect match for this project! I want a suit for winter to look like a cloud or snowflake , perhaps?

Top. Top to bottom, one piece, seamless yoke on US 6. 60 sts around collar, 8 reps around bust. Ribbing on US 1 and 3 (toward bottom).

Skirt.Started with 160 sts on US 1 in ribbing 2x2 for 6”. Then cont on US 6 in umbel pattern (8 rep wide), increased to 15 rep wide, cont to knit until skirt reached knee length. Then elastic band was built in the waist using crochet hook. When worn together with a top, the overall look is like a dress. Loved the project. I look like a cloud! Very warm piece of garment.
