ADDING TAB between legs
Find the center- I counted back 6 sts from the end and then did hdc for 11 sts for 4 rows. Do the same on the other side so your back tab lines up. Add snaps for closure. Or you can add 2 buttons for closure.

SLEEVES
Rows 1-3: Attach yarn under arm, ch 2, dc in each St around, join, ch 2. Do 3 rows of dc for the sleeves.

Row 4. Sc in each St around, fasten off.

NECKLINE
You may add a button for closure on the back. I like to do the tie, as follows: Chain 40, sl St at neckline, SC in each St all the way to the other side, ch 40, and fasten off tie. And you are done. If you want to, you may also ch 125 and make a tie and weave thru the waistline.
