I made my own wedding dress!

The pattern is the Midnight Lace Dress by Doris Chan, published in the March 2008 issue of Crochet! magazine. I used an ivory/white worsted weight cotton, and it took me about two weeks. Instead of running the ribbon through the neck, I opted for more of a flapper look and wore it low on my hips. (It seemed to give more shape that way.)

Thank you for letting me share!

That's beautiful, I would have never imagined it as a wedding dress, but it is just perfect for it.  I admire crochet so much because I'm terrible at it. 

And..., how many people can say they actually made their own wedding dress?!?!
