Can anyone help?

Hi am wondering if you can help me figure out how many stitches i need for my wedding dress . my measurements are my bust is 38 inches and my hips are 39 inches. and my waist is 34 inches(with a shapewear on). i am 5’0 foot tall and wanting flats at the wedding so no heels. I have a dress slip to go under it. the back will be up higher also.

I am wanting to do something like this photo. but i am wanting the skirt to start mid thigh.

for the skirt i am wanting to alternate 5 layers of 3-4 tiers of these patterns.

I am just scared ill calculate wrong and make it to small or to big.

the last photo is the dress slip i have. it is the same one but the back isnt v its up higher to where the straps end is where the back is at, and its rounded.

I also found some pearls that i am thinking about using on the back when binding off to so along the edge and the straps.

Wow, this wedding dress gets more spectacular with every pattern stitch!
Best thing to do is to knit swatches for the various stitches with your yarn and needles. That way you can see the drape and laciness of the patterns. Once you have some good swatches in hand, you’ll be able to determine the number of sts/inch and then the number of sts for your measurements. You’ll also know how much ease you want with the dress.
It’s a big project with not much of a basic blueprint. You might want to find a dress pattern to use as a guide for your chosen stitch patterns.
