Row 23: Sl st over 3 sts, ch 3, dec dc 1 st, then dc across. Ch 3, turn.

After all pieces are made, sew top seams of sides to the back.  Then sew side seams, leaving approx. 6" for arm hole.  I would recommend trying it on the person it's meant for to make sure the arm holes are right.  Sc around the armholes and the neckline. Fasten off and weave in ends.  Sew in zipper.  I used a 16-inch medium weight coat zipper and hand sewed it on.
