Gauge: 23 sts per 4 inches (skirt) and 21 sts per 4 inches (bodice)
Note on gauge and yarn:
Bodice gauge is most important. The pattern was designed with cotton yarn in mind. I have taken into the account the stretchiness of cotton, thus 2 inches of negative ease are in the design of the bodice. If however, you want to knit your project in wool, i would recommend to go up a size.
