This pattern has not been tested, please let me know if you find any errors.  I apologize for any mistakes.  I'm still learning how to write patterns out so that others can understand.  I'm not a professional, so please do not expect me to be.

Row 1: Ch 92, dc in 4th ch from hook, dc in the next 15 chs, in next ch 2dc-ch2-2dc, then dc in next 10 chs, 2dc-ch2-2dc (shell) in next ch, dc in next 32 chs, 2dc-ch2-2dch (shell) in next ch, dc in next 10 chs, 2dc-ch2-2dch (shell) in next ch, dc in next 17 chs. Turn.

Row 2: Ch 3 (count as 1st dc), dc in same st, dc across to the shell.  In the ch 2 sp of the shell, work 2dc-ch2-2dc. Dc across to next shell and repeat from *.  Turn.

Rows 3-11: Repeat Row 2.

Row 12: sleeve row: Ch 3, dc in same st, dc across to the shell.  Dc in the 1st shell, skip over the sleeve sts, ch 5 and dc into the next shell. Dc across the back to the next shell.  Dc into that shell, skip over the sleeve sts, ch 5 and dc into the last shell. Dc across to the end.  Sl st tog.  You will now work in rounds.  The V that is formed is the front.

Round 13: Ch 3, dc in each st around including the ch 5's in each sleeve.  Sl st tog.

Round 14: Ch 3, 4dc in the same st as the ch 3. *Skip 2 sts, sc, skip 2sts, 5dc in the next st.  Repeat from * around. Sl st tog.

Round 15: Ch 3, dc in the same st, ch 1. *Then sc in the center st of the group of 5dc, 5dc in the sc from the previous round. Repeat from the * around. End with 3dc in the same st as the original ch 3.  Sl st tog.

Round 16-34: Repeat Round 15.

Round 35: Ch 1, sc in the same st.  *Skip over to the sc, work 3dc-ch3-3dc in that st. Sc in the center st of the group of 5dc. Repeat from * around. Sl st tog.

Round 36: Ch 1, sc in the same st. *Skip over to the ch 3 sp, 4dc-ch4-4dc in that sp.  Sc in the sc from the previous round. Repeat from * around. Sl st tog.

Round 37: Ch 1, sc in the same st. *Skip over to the ch 4 sp, 5dc-ch5-5dc in that sp. Sc in the sc from the previous round. Repeat from * around. Sl st tog.

Round 38: Ch 1, sc in each st around. Work 7 chs in the ch 5 sp.  Sl st tog. Fasten off and weave in ends. 

If you wish you can make the top longer if needed.  Just continue the pattern.

In the V-neck part, I did sc around it.  Fastened off and weaved in ends.

Neckline:

I started from one corner of the V-neck.  I attached yarn with sl st.

Round 1: Ch 3, dc in same st, ch 2, 2dc all in the same st. *Skip 2 sts, 2dc-ch2-2dc in next st.  Repeat from * around. Sl st tog.

Rounds 2-4: Sl st to the ch 2 sp, ch 3, dc, ch 2, 2dc all in the ch 2 sp.  *Skip over to next ch 2 sp, 2dc-ch2-2dc in that sp.  Repeat from * around. Sl st tog.  Fasten off and weave in ends.

Sleeves: Do this to both sides:

Round 1: Attach yarn to under the arm with a sl st, I did 64 dc around the arm. (I just dc around it and counted how many dcs it was).

Rounds 2-5: Ch 3, dc in each st around. Sl st tog.

Rounds 6-8: Ch 3, dec dc, dec dc, then dc in each st around. Sl st tog.

Rounds 9-14: Ch 3, dc in each st around. Sl st tog.

Round 15: Ch 3, dc in same st, ch 2, 2dc all in the same st. *Skip 2 sts, 2dc-ch2-2dc in next st.  Repeat from * around. Sl st tog.
