Chain 33
1. sc 4 - SH - sc 6 - SH - sc 8 - SH - sc 6 - SH - sc 4 - chain 2 - turn
2. hdc 5 - SH (hdc) - hdc 8 - SH - hdc 10 - SH - hdc 8 - SH hdc 5 - ch 2 - turn
3. hdc 6 - SH - hdc 10 - SH - hdc 12 - SH - hdc 10 - SH - hdc 6 - ch 2 - turn
4. hdc 7 - SH - hdc 12 - SH - hdc 14 - SH - hdc 12 - SH - hdc 7 - ch 1 - turn
5. sc across the ooutfit - 64 - ch 1 - turn
6. sc 8 - skip 15 - sc 18 - skip 15 - sc 8 - ch 2 turn (This row makes the sleeves. Each of the skip 15 parts will become a sleeve. Do not crochet on the sleeves any more)
7. hdc 8 - hdc 2 in each of the next two stitches (total of 4 stitches in 2 stitches - should be under the arms - to add a little more width) - hdc 15 - hdc 2 in each of the next two stitches - hdc to the end of the row - ch 2 - turn
8. hdc across - 38 - ch 2 turn
9. hdc 10, hdc 2 in each of the next two stitches (under arms again), hdc 17, hdc 2 in each of the next two stitches, hdc to the end of the row - ch 2 turn
10 - 25: hdc across - 42 - ch 2 - turn
26 - this will be the row the ribbon goes through: ch 2 (you'll have a total of ch 4 here) skip first stitch - dc in next stitch - *ch 2 - skip 1 stitch - dc in next stitch* - repeat * to * across. For last stitch instead of a dc, ch 4 like you did at the beginning - slip stitch last one to the outfit.

Edge the outfit with1 row sc. After the slip stitch you might need to chain one so your first sc around the edge lays flat. Make sure to add button holes down one side of the outfit. I did one at the neck and one about row 10. To make a button hole instead of sc ch 2 and skip the next spot you would have sc. 2 rows of sc will make a nice flat edge.

I edged the edges of Row 26 as well - but it does make a little big of a bigger end there. The original one I made the pattern from did not have the edges of Row 26 edged. I think either will work. One row of sc will work - but I like the look of having two edge rows. Make sure button holes are on the first row of edging.  Do not edge the bottom of row 26. At each corner of the outfit do a SH stitch to turn the corner.

Add buttons. Weave a ribbon in and out of the stitches on row 26. Tie in a bow. You could substitute a ribbon for a crochet chain. Personally I like the buttons and ribbon bow in the front - but they can easily go in the back.

This outfit size matches nicely with the Teeny Tears Small Crochet Diaper and this hat.
