I ended up adding 6 rows (approx 1" in my guage) after joining the round before starting the purl ridges. I think where the end of the neck line ends depends on the size you're knitting and your bust size.

Stormshade, I absolutely love your sweater. I think the color of the beads sets off the whole thing. Gorgeous.

Slim - I knit it just as the pattern states but when it says to try it on, I decided to keep knitting.  I believe I knit an extra 10 rows until I joined in the round.  I made sure I tried it on again before I started the purl rows and just knit until it was where I wanted them to begin.  The same with the bottom.  I just tested it before I started the purl row for the hem, knit a few rows extra.  You're quite a bit taller than I am so your increase would probably be different.  Just don't start the purl ridges until they're where you want them to be.
Remember to increase the same amount of rows on the arms as you did before starting the waist panel.  That way they are adjacent to one another.

Pixie - I measure 3.5 inches from the armpit to the beginning of the first purl ridge.

man i am so good i was guessing 3 inches from the photo, I somehow ended up with 1.5 inches.. I knew it was wrong!! very odd, because it's just 10 rows after you cast of the arms... maybe you knit a larger size.. but I have a long torst so I think i need to go to 3 inches.

THANKS!

stormshade, yours turned out sooo beautiful it inspired me to continue on mine !! Tried it on twice, added 2 set of increase (doing size s), and I think I'm ready to join the sides now ! exciting !! ( hopefully it will fit just right when I stop breastfeeding... )

I really think it's going to be super warm tho ! But the mohair is looking nice...

StormShade - Thanks for your answer, but I'm still confused Huh.  Did you knit more of rows 2 - 9 or did you set aside the sleeves and just knit?  If I repeat rows 2 - 9, I'd get a bigger around sweater, but I really just want a longer sweater.

Just straight stockinette...do NOT add more increase rows.

Make sure you try on the sweater, you'll see clearly how much you need to add so the purl ridge/lace panel starts where you want it to on your own body.
Knit everything as the pattern states until you reach the point where you are to join in the round, this is where you will knit straight stockinette until it reaches the length you want...THEN join in the round and continue according to the pattern.

Definitely definitely DEFINITELY take the time to put the stitches on a thread and try the sweater on.  Do it twice if you have to just to make sure!  It's better to take the time and effort to do it at this point so the rest of your work comes out right.  I know it's a pain but it's worth it.

storm before you joined, did it cover all your boobs with a little stretch or was it WAY up there... I would assume I would wan tot make sure it covered them, but it's probably good if it stretches a tad.. to open the bust up more and not be baggy (Im a B cup).

Pixie - That looks right.  It came just under my boob when I pulled the sweater down a bit.  Is that the Tilli?  It's beautiful!  All the colors of that stuff are beautiful.

I just cast on my Tilli yesterday and I can't stop knitting!  It's so addictive, the feel of it is so wonderful.  Although I'm knitting the same size and basic alterations, I'm wondering how much stretch the Tilli silk has since the cotton I used in my first has none.
