The shadow work is finished and it is time to start the construction. The eyes, nose and dots on the bow are all granitos. They are the hardest stitch to me. I usually have to review my instructions on granitos before starting out. I find the book Mastering Shadow Work Embroidery by Wendy Schoen the most helpful for me.

The book includes several shadow work designs and step by step instructions, along with two full size patterns of the outfits on the cover.
Here is my progress so far.

Hopefully I will be able to show a completed sunsuit this weekend!
