This top is very cheerful but I think it is a bit too full (sigh) . It does make you smile when you see our girl wearing this. And she gets to borrow Sunnie’s yellow shoes.. fair is fair.
Start, row 1: Ch 28, dc in 2nd ch from hook and next 3 ch, ch 5, skip 5 chain, 2dc in next ch dc in next 7, 2dc in next ch, ch 5, sk 5 chain, dc in 3ch 2dc in last. Ch 1 and turn
(keep yourself oriented so you know which is the original chain row)
Row 2: work 2 hdc across.
Row 3: work dc across but work 4 increases (back, 2 in front, other back)
Rows 4: hdc across
Row 5: dc in 1, 2 dc in next across
Row 6: dc across but work a dc between the two stitches of your increase on row 5. Break off yellow.
Choose a side to be your right side. Either your first row is the right side or your last row is the right side. Be an executive; make a decision J
With right side facing, attach yarn in the top at CB Work sc down the centre back edge and put 3 sc into bottom corner to turn, work ch 3 sc in every other stitch across. Again put 3sc into bottom left corner and work up left side, Work sc along neck edge using double decrease in each corner, join to first sc and break off.
Attach white yarn in the bodice stitch at the base of the armhole. What you are going to do is work an increasing then decreasing series of chains over the armhole cap.
This is what I did but you may need more or less to cover yours.
Work ch 3, sc, ch 4, sc, ch 5, sc, (ch 6, sc) three times, ch 5, sc, ch 4, sc, ch 3, sc, over the armhole stitches . Pull the stitches out straight rather than flaring them for this top.
Tidy all ends.
These are worked in stripes of Yellow and white. These could qualify for ®Cute Overload .
work 2 but Break off after both legs.
Chain 20 and join to form a ring.
Row 1: work dc around join and break off Yellow
Row 2: attach White and work dc around. Break off white.
Join and Row 3: with yellow, join the two legs with 5 sc for the crotch (you are now at CF) dc around the first leg stitch but work TR into the first joining stitch and one on either side of that one, dc back to beginning dc join. Secure Yellow but do not break off
Row 4: Attach White at CB and work even in dc
Row 5: Ditto with Yellow
Row 6: Dc around with White but work one dc decrease at the beginning of the round. Join and break off white.
Row 7: Work a row of hdc, ch 1 around. Join and break off.
‘Belt’… With yellow and white together .. chain 40 , secure and break off . thread through the mesh formed by the top row of the pants. Do not tie, just let it hang in place. You might want fewer chains or more chains. As you can see in the picture, you only see the cut ends from under the top. More chains would make the ‘belt’ visible and fewer would remove the tag ends from view. go with what works for you.

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.
