Under Head & Body where is round 14?

Thank you for notice, there should be rounds 14-17, not 15-17 the same amount of single crochet in each. It was my mistake. I'll correct it in my pattern.

 

And sorry if there are some mistakes, it's my first so complex pattern...:blush

So, how long do we have to wait for the clothes pattern? She is just so cute but we can't have her getting cold! :(
