Redditor Crochets Wedding Dress - On The Bus!

The Reddit community was blown away. Reddit member alkikat earned more than 1,100 comments in the community after sharing photos and a video of her $30 wedding dress.

She crocheted the stunning white mermaid style dress herself while commuting on the bus. (Notice the cat video bomb - it looks like he loves the dress too!) wedding site reports that most women spend $1,000 or more on their dress but this DIY expert knows how to find a bargain. She writes, "I bought 2 of the larger skeins of cotton thread on sale for about $7 each." She reported that the remaining cost was for the lining fabric - also bought on sale. The look was completed with a spring green sash.  

The dress is basically a tube, flaring out at the bottom with a top attached to the tube. Additionally, she made her own pattern, often the hardest part of garmencreation. 

Beautiful, thrifty and requiring a ton of talent - we nominate this savvy sewer for any "Best Dressed Bride" list!
