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 🙂

Hello! I just stumbled onto you summer dress article & then I was clicking on your wedding dress. So beautiful! I completely understand not writing out a pattern. I've been crocheting for a few years, but have a horrible time trying to follow patterns, so I end up "winging it". My favorite projects are bags. I've made purses, bags to hold crochet needles. I started adding zippers and that's been a game changer. I think it's time to try something wearable (other than a hat 😁 ) Thanks for giving me the courage to give it a try! Much love from a fellow crocheter 🥰

Hey Goldie, welcome! Thank you for the kind feedback. One day, I'm gonna make that wedding dress pattern lol. I always had a hard time following patterns too, so I just made my own designs. I had to learn to read them when I wanted to share my designs with other people so it worked out for the best, but I was winging it a lot. I started with bags too. Learning to sew a lining and add zippers is a huge game changer. I hope you give a garment a try, you won't regret it. My patterns are easy to follow and you'll be so impressed with yourself when you finish it. It's totally doable, I promise. Much love back, keep me posted on your garment success.

Your crocheted wedding dress is BEAUTIFUL. I love it. I’m going to try and copy it but if you have a pattern that would be perfect.

Thank you Sharon! I don't have a pattern for it yet. It was one of the first garments I ever crocheted and it was a MONSTER of a task for me to design at the time. A lot of tears and frogging to get it together in time for my wedding lol. I've been dreaming of making a pattern for it but I've been putting it off for a while. Wish you lots of luck with your design, let me know how it goes and if I can help answer any questions.
