I just re-read what I wrote before and made some corrections when it dawned on me where and how I can make my increases!
The section that has me knitting the underarm until the dress measures 9", it says to adjust count by "inc/dec". I would inc 3 sts giving me 163 stitches then when I'm at the point of placing my markers I can increase in between there to the next size given. K11 (14),K51 (55) ending up with a total of 170 sts, which is where I need to be to begin the hip shaping.

Do you think that would work?
