I'm going to start my Juliet soon. I swatched out my yarn today, Valley Yarns Sugarloaf, and got 15 and half sts in 4" on size 10.5 needles. Is that close enough to the 14 sts/4" required by the pattern that I can go ahead, or should I try and get it closer? And would I go up a needle size or down? I've never had my gauge be off before so I'm not experienced with this.

This sweater knits up big!  Thats the opinion of most people anyway.

To get the right guage you'd need to go up a needle size, but since your gauge is smaller you might be okay.  It would really depend upon the look you are going for.

Also many people found the skirt on this too flared and ended up doing a different size for the skirt than the bodice.

Thanks. I'll try going up a size. I had read it fits big so I was going to make one size smaller than I normally wear anyways. As far as making a different size skirt, did most people make the skirt just one size smaller?

Yes.  Alot of people complained that the skirt was too flared and looked maternity like.  I knit the large up top, and the medium for the skirt.  Its still quite flared too.  I can't imagine doing a large and large.

If you find Juliet somewhat too flared, check out this: http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/en/visoppskrift.php?d_nr=94&d_id=5&lang=en. I'm doing a mix between the two, since I've chosen a lighter yarn than Zephyrstyle suggests. But I really like their idea of the buttons and this gap at the front. it does look cute.

The lower part can be knit on needles smaller than the top. I've done that for a lace bottom edge because the lace comes out at a larger gauge than stockinette; that's why the flare out.

I'm about to begin the lace section and I am having so many issues setting up for the lace. I started the small but did a few extra increase rows to make the arms fit more comfortably--they say you can do this in the pattern, but I can't figure out my new math! I have 124 sts on my needles, and I need to get to 173 (following size small for the lace). I've never had to tweak a pattern like this and I don't understand how to calculate for it. I need to know how many reps of the K4, K1f,b,f&b, but also what sts I am doing at the beginning and end before my repeats--since each size has some different configuration of K1's and Kf&b's I don't know which one I should use as model and how those will even effect how it looks.
