I crocheted my lace wedding dress on the bus during my work commute for about 5 months. The dress is a pattern I designed with a commonly used pineapple stitch. Here’s a video of my process: http://youtu.be/edFt9Ug5RmY. The dress was practically free because I didn’t spend much money on it (under $30 for all of the materials including fabric for the lining) and I didn’t spend much extra time on it. My commute time couldn’t be used for anything else anyway. The dress is also machine washable (I’ve washed it several times), doesn’t wrinkle or need any special care, and I plan on wearing it again with linings of different colors and with the train bustled up in different ways.
This is absolutely amazing! Reddit user alkikat crocheted her own wedding dress over 5 months during her 50-minute bus commute. I love that she not only crocheted something herself for her special day, but also plans to use it with different colored linings and by bustling the train different ways! So not only was it cheap to make, she’ll also get more use out of it than a typical wedding dress! Amazing!
