Please...somebody answer the questions. I am ready to make this but need guidance.

Would love to see a post where someone actually made this from the directions. I'm assuming "repeat from across" is meaning to start from the beginning and do it again until getting to the end of the chain!! Also, I'm a little confused where it says to start in the 7th chain from the hook....does that mean the 8th chain? The next instruction is to "SKIP 7 chains" putting your next stitch in the 8th chain. This creates a 'lace' look and the "repeats" are unbalanced since the first instruction is at 7 and the next ones are on chain 8. I must be missing something here!!! Also, if this first row is to connect with the bodice, these 'lace' chains aren't going to connect with a straight edge, as pictured, very well.

Would love to make this for my grand daughter but after looking over the pattern there seems to be some issues.

did we get an answer on the question..."repeat from" where???

In your directions it states "rep from across". My question is repeat from the beginning or is there a specific place to repeat?
