Thanks, everyone! We wanted a low-key, DIY wedding, so making my own dress seemed the obvious choice!

P.S. When I told people I was making my own dress, they asked if I'd be making my husband's tux. Guess that's my project for when we renew our vows.

Beautiful and so original! How long did it take you to crochet it?

Thanks for your compliments, everyone! Craftrica, it took me about two weeks to do. After working the shoulders and armholes, it's done entirely in one piece, so it goes pretty fast. (I had some difficulty finding a length I likedat first the dress dropped down to mid-calf, which was not flattering. So I frogged it to the waist and redid it. Much better!)
