Worked from bottom edge towards the top.
Work 210-230-250-270 ch with crochet hook size 4 mm / G/6 and 1 thread of each quality.
ROW 1(= RS): 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook, 1 sc in each of the next 4-5-6-7 ch, skip 1 ch, * 1 sc in each of the next 8 ch, skip 1 ch *, repeat from *-*, and finish with 1 sc in each of the last 5-6-7-8 ch = 186-204-222-240 sc.
ROW 2-5: 1 sc in each sc – turn each row with 1 ch.
ROW 6: * 5 ch, skip 2 sc, 1 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* = 62-68-74-80 ch-loops.
ROW 7: 8 ch, 1 sc in first ch-loop, * 5 ch, 1 sc in next ch-loop *, repeat from *-*.
Repeat row 7 until piece measures approx 25-27-29-31 cm / 9¾”-10 5/8”-11 3/8”-12¼” – adjust so that next row is from WS.

NEXT ROW: 1 ch, and 3 sc in each ch-loop across the row = 186-204-222-240 sc.
THE NEXT 2 ROWS: 1 sc in each sc.
Now insert 11-12-13-14 markers in piece (from RS) as follows: First marker after 8-8-9-9 sc, and then 17 sc between each marker = 8-9-9-10 sc left after the last marker.
On next row dec 1 st to the left of all markers (dec 1 st by skipping 1 sc after marker) = a total of 11-12-13-14 dec sts on row. Work 1 row from WS with 1 sc in each sc. On next row dec 1 st to the right of all markers (by skipping 1 sc before marker). Repeat the dec on every row from RS a total of 9 times, to the left and to the right of markers alternately. When all dec are complete there are 87-96-105-114 sc left on row. Work 2 rows with 1 sc in each sc, cut and fasten the thread.

LEFT FRONT BAND: Work approx 55 to 67 sc along front piece – approx 3 sc in each ch-loop and 2 sc per 3 rows with sc. Make sure the edge doesn’t become too tight nor too loose! Now work 4 rows with 1 sc in each sc.

RIGHT FRONT BAND: Like left front band, but after 2 rows crochet 2 buttonholes. 1 buttonhole = 3 ch, skip 3 sc, on next row work 3 sc in ch-loop. Place the top buttonhole approx 2 cm / 3/4’’ from the top and the next 6 cm / 2 3/8’’ below the first one.
Sew on buttons.
