Collar… attach white yarn at left back neck edge:
Sc in 1, hdc in next 2dc in next 5, hdc, in 1, sc in 2, hdc in 1, 2dc in next 5, hdc in 1, sc in last.
Work a row of sc along the collar edge increasing only if needed to keep it flat..
Stitch one red button thru the collar and dress to keep collar down.
Centre draw waist. Tie a long strand of yarn at each Centre Back edge. Tie at half way point so the two ends will meet evenly. Draw each set of strands under 2/over 2 to centre front. Tie a nice bow that is somewhat generous – you need the yarn to give when you untie the bow to get it on and off. Make a knot at the point that looks good to you and trim ends.
With green yarn: attach a 15” strand and tie a smaller bow in the 3rd beige row up from bottom. Put a dab of clear nail polish on the knot to keep it steady. Let that dry before you continue.
The cherries: take the strand from the cherries and secure it loosely in the last beige row. Use this yarn to attach your buttons by going through holes twice. Secure and tidy all ends. Use the pics when working this out. If you have more buttons, you can do more sets of cherries.
The triangle kerchief.

I do not have a problem with people/groups using my patterns to make a little extra money by physically making them and selling the items they make.
However, I do not permit the selling of my patterns for money. I have once given permission for a booklet to be made of them for a charitable sale and I may do so again *if I am asked* and if it is for a church, charity or school type group. But first you have to ask.
Furthermore, If you choose to use my patterns as a money maker, I do not permit my images to be used for any advertizing of your work. You must make your own item and photograph that. These images are as much a part of my Web image as a designer as the patterns are and I reserve that use to myself alone.
