What advice would you give someone starting this project? Sizes given in the pattern for the bodice portion are for 6 months, 12 months and 18 months. The model in the photo is wearing size 6 months. The pattern does not provide the name of any fabric. It DOES provide the name and brand of yarn I used. If you are adding the beaded or a pom pom fringe, just slip it in between the crocheted bodice and fabric before sewing! Easy peasy! Color photos included! I am always available for help!
