B.........ooties with socks

When searching for a way to make booties to
accompany my latest Christening dress, I
wanted to be sure that it would not be so easy for the baby to kick them off. I remembered seeing booties done around baby socks a long time ago and adapted a tiny pair of socks by attaching a bottom, sides, and an instep to the bottom cuff with a fine elastic thread. The actual crocheted portion of the booties is done in the same crochet cotton as the dress and the lace roses attached to the instep match the rose on the bodice of the dress. Both are my own designs and are available in my Etsy shop. Although the booties were designed to go with the dress, they would be darling for any special
