Cute Girls Crocheted Play Dress

Crocheted Girls Play Dress
I'm not sure why I never seem to completely finish any crochet projects. I love to start them, work diligently until 75-90% completion, and then stop and start something else. I recently started this little dress as a gift for my niece. The pattern is from a August 2002 issue of Crochet World that I picked up for $0.50 at a thrift store over the summer. I tried to find it online to share it, but was unable to. The pattern was easy to follow. I did change it just a bit. I used a larger hook and different yarn colors because that is what I had. I also added a button to the center of the "flower button".

Overall the dress was easy to make and worked up in four days. I'm about 98% done with the dress. I'm hoping that writing about it will give me the motivation to finish the second strap. I have crocheted the strap, but need to make another flower button and sew it together. I would like to make a matching hat and maybe sock trims. Crochet World included a pattern for a beret that matches the dress, but I don't like it. I think that the butterfly hat that was suppose to be my next project will look cute with this dress. I haven't started looking for a pattern for sock edgings. I'll have to get searching!

Thank you! The colors are bright for a fall/winter dress. It will be fun during the crappy winters my family experiences in Wisconsin. I started a matching doll dress a couple of nights ago. It should be cute. My niece is getting into dolls.
