My Crochet Wedding Dress

When my husband and I got married, we were incredibly poor. We had just recently moved back to America from my home country of Thailand, and we were just getting on our feet. I was frantically trying to find a wedding dress that we could afford, but also something that was fitting for such a special day.

There was simply nothing that was as beautiful and special as that day called for. So, I did what any crochet addict would do and set out to make one. I’d never made anything like it before, and it was hard to find a pattern for one. After a lot of trial, error and tears of frustration, I finally made something that worked out perfectly.

It took a couple months and a lot of lace weight thread. Not to mention a lot of love and a little bit of luck. My special day was that much more special wearing something that was one of a kind and handmade by yours truly. I never made a pattern for it, maybe someday I will.

The picture is unfortunately from a time before we started to learn about photography, and all we had was an iphone 4, but I’m happy we have this photo.

It’s a very special project with a lot of memories and I wanted to share it with you all 🙂

    The summer dress is certainly on my list of patterns to make. The wedding dress is as well but it was such a monumental task at the time, and there are so many little details that it will take me a while to make that into a pattern. Thank you so much for your support! God bless you as well.
