…which in this case, are part the same package. Doilies are *not* something I’d usually drool over, but when they’re handmade and part of one of the prettiest and most fun wedding dresses I’ve seen this side of an elopement – on 100 Layer Cake, I should add – it’s a different story.
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.
Two miles! I can sew a bit, but I don’t think I’ve used two miles of anything other than thread in my combined output. Isn’t this wedding dress just amazing? And cute? Every time I look at it, I get a little giggly and a lot jealous!
Did you ever consider making your own wedding dress? Or maybe taking a dress already in existence and modifying it in some way using your badass crafty skills?
