What advice would you give someone starting this project? I used the Simplicity 4766 pattern for the dress and used a McCall's M4865 for the bonnet. There are so many sheer fabrics already embroidered for you as well as many different lace fabrics. The Simplicity pattern also includes a hooded cape that' really pretty. The McCall's pattern includes a slip pattern and a blanket pattern. You can just mix and match and be creative!
