A Bride Spent 1,000 Hours Crocheting Her Own Wedding Dress
Wed 15-07-2015

Bride Tania Jennings has been crocheting since she was a little kid, but had never made anything for herself. 

That is, until she took on the laborious and tedious challenge of making her own wedding dress for her June 2015 nuptials at St. Pancras Church in London. In all, she estimates she spent close to 1,000 hours on the garment.

Jennings' dress was made of silver satin and was designed by a family friend. The bride then crocheted the purple (her husband's favorite color) and white lace bodice overlay, as well as the lace portions of the hem and train. There were about 150 individual pieces of lace in all, which were webbed together after she had her final dress fitting.

The bride, who is originally from Portland, Oregon, was inspired by another woman'scrocheted wedding dress she had seen online and decided to take a stab at it herself.
