The Countdown to Maker Faire Bay Area is On!


Crochet Doily Wedding Dress


This adorable wedding ensemble kind of makes me want to go back and have a wedding do-over. Bride, Jillian, created not only her dress, but also her bouquet and shoes.

Jillian made her own dress, including the pattern for it. She deconstructed a vintage dress to create a pattern for the bodice (the green part); sewed that, and then crocheted doilies madly for three weeks straight. She used over two miles of crochet yarn. Apparently they were still working on the dress the morning of the wedding (!) and Jillian had to be sewn into it, Project Runway style.
