Gauge 4 inches = 16 stitches x 18 rows
This the gauge using a size G crochet hook, which will be different from the video.  The video is using a lager crochet hook.

Size - The dress size is for a 3-12 month baby, just by changing the size of your crochet hook.  If you want to make the dress even larger, increase the size of the starting chain with 3-5 extra stitches.  You will need to adjust the back sections as well.
