Although not stated in the pattern you will need 12 stitch markers (for smallest size) to mark the sections when you are working the lace yarnovers.

The pattern calls for you to divide for body immediately after the lace yarnovers. This means there are lace holes in the underarms (on smallest size, at least) which could prove a weak point. Therefore you may wish to add in 2 or more stocking stitch rows before the divide.
