Crochet Dress and Slippers

Once again, I am a lucky little crafter and have gotten to fill a super fun request! Do you remember that pretty lavender and pink sweater and hat I got to make for Amiee of Claire's Bowtique and tutubugs? Well, she asked me to make a dress and slippers that her cute little one could wear with the sweater. Here's what I came up with -
Isn't that fun? I made it super adjustable - the shoulder straps can be pretty much any length she needs.
I liked this little pink and lavender stripe along the top of the bodice and around the waist.

The skirt is a series of shells with the same shell stitch at the bottom of the dress that is featured in the sweater.
Here's the back of the dress.

To make the bodice adjustable - and super cute- it laces down the back with a lavender ribbon.
The slippers are basically the same as the baby booties I make, but with a larger hook and an extra row.
Thanks so much, Amiee for having me make this! You can visit Amiee's Etsy shop here: http://tutbugs.etsy.com and for amazing deals and custom orders, her Facebook fanpage here: http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Allegan-MI/Claires-Bowtique/191942987248?ref=ts
